Service continues on home front
Farmington Navy veteran Don Gamer gave of himself when his country called on him during the Vietnam War. These days, he gives of himself when his community calls on him.
Gamer was just 17 years old when he entered the Navy in 1954 — his parents had to sign a waiver allowing him to enter because he wasn’t an adult yet. He was barely done with boot camp when he boarded the USS Phillipine SeaCVA-43 at the end of the Korean Conflict.
