by Thomas Turman

Overview
Sailors and Dogs... is my coming-of-age story of my non-wartime, four-year tour of duty in the Navy Construction Battalions (Seabees).
Description
Sailors and Dogs Keep off the Grass is Thomas Turman's coming-of-age account of a spirited, sensitive and humorous four years in the Navy Construction Battalions (Seabees). This follows Turman from Boot Camp in San Diego, to the odd Nevada Navy, to the mobile construction battalion's work in New Foundland, Spain, Cuba, Bermuda and in one incident, a secret "Black Op" job in the Caribbean. Escaping from the Navy, there are sensual and humorous side-trips to Reno, Boston, Providence and New York. This story should appeal to those who have served in any service and even to those who haven't and are curious about military life.
About the author
Mr. Turman is an architect, writer, teacher and failed first baseman who has practiced and written in Northern California for the last 40 years. He is the author of "WAWA-West Africa Wins Again", TEACHER-Stories to be Read and Graded by Friday" and "The Faculty Gang".
