  • "And anyway, when I got to Idaho Falls, one of the things that the Navy did in the interest of maintaining the moral purity of its people was, they had a drug bust. And nobody actually caught me, some people had said that I had actually smoked marijuana with them. And when they came to ask me if that were true, I said that it was. Because it was. And also, threw in that I had had a couple of LSD tablets and some THC, just to make sure that if I was going to get – if I was on the borderline, to make sure I got out.

But everybody just assumed at once that I got out because Dad was in there, and it never got to be a question"
