I stayed in the Navy until July of 1946.
I was always good at math and science and physics.
Then I came back and restarted at the UW that fall.
I got called back into the Navy during the Korean War.
When it came time to go to the University, it was during the war.
I didn't take very much part in activities on campus at that time.
I did graduate with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering in 1948.
I really got to a point where I thought maybe I would want to be involved politically.
The only kind of movement you could make in the Navy was to be a platoon leader or one of those kinds of things as you got more senior in your Navy career.
But I decided I wanted more education and I had to make a choice between starting law school, which was interesting to me, and going for a graduate degree in engineering.
