Kingsley R. Woodhead
MCPO, USN (Ret)
I joined the Navy right out of high school in 1956 and took 20-year retirement in late 1975. I got a few months off 20 years because with the end of U.S. involvement in Viet Nam the services had too many people and offered “early outs” of up to a year to all enlisted personnel. After finishing my BA at the University of Washington I went to work in the marketing department of Safeco Insurance Company in Seattle in 1977. I retired from Safeco in 1999. I now keep myself busy with volunteer activities and plenty of loafing.
