Marv France ~ I think my adventures started when General Jimmy Doolittle swore
me into the US Air Force in 1957 at Oxnard Air Force Base, California. He
shook my hand and said, "France, by looking at you, I know you are going
places." And I have been running ever sense. "I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States
against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the
President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
So help me God." At that time I started fighting "Communism". My Adventures: Engineer & Ambulance Driver, Coalinga Fire Department.
Forman of a 11 man crew in a Asbestos Mine, Police Officer, Mendota, CA., Western Offshore Drilling & Exploration, worked
as a Derrick man on the WODECO 3 & 4 until they were sent to the Persian Gulf. Global Marine - Alaska to South America. Mud Engineer, Directional Drilling &
Gravel Packing. I was raised in the Oil Fields. Believe me they know what they are doing.
They have alot of "No Dope Holes". I have owned 14 Commercial Fishing
Vessels in my life and thanks to the Italian & Portagese Fisherman I have known,
I'm a good Fisherman. Drove Truck in the 48 States for 16 years (averaged
135,000 miles per year) until the AMA got a hold of me and now I have about 35%
use of my lungs and making Hatbands & Selling Hats, with the best Customer Data
Base one could have.
"Bye Golley" got a good idea! "No Oregon Timber Exported until Milled
(like it used to be)- Private or Government - and you will see all our Job's come back to Oregon" and we can afford to buy a "Hat".
