Following in Daddy’s Footsteps

June 9, 2012

For Merrily Kurtz, joining the Navy was a family affair.

My dad had been in the Navy and he kind of encouraged me to go in the Navy. When we’d talk about it, he’d say what a good time he had. Saw the world.  Well, he didn’t see much of the world, Chicago, mostly, and the Great Lakes.  But he encouraged me to go in, through it would be good for me to see some of the world.  I signed up to go in the WAVES.

This photo shows Merrily Kurtz on the job. It comes from the collection of Merrily Kurt Hewett.
