Autobiography of a Navy Mustang (November 20, 1952 to September 30, 1981)
by Ed Hudson
Autobiography of a Navy Mustang by Ed Hudson is a compilation of entertaining anecdotes of his very successful naval career from his enlistment during the Korean War through his retirement in 1981. To quote the author, I will strive to take you through boot camp in San Diego, California, and the other schools I attended, as well as all the various duty station assignments from the shores of the Mainland United States and Hawaii, to the shores of Bermuda, Okinawa, the Philippines, and Vietnam, citing the promotions I received along the way.
A man with great ambition, he took advantage of every opportunity for education and made continued progress up the ladder from enlisted man to officer in eleven years, ten months, and ten days, thus becoming a Navy Mustang. At some points along the way, he was considered quite young to have received such promotions. From his appointment to Ensign, he spent exactly seventeen years as an officer, retiring in September of 1981.
Ed Hudsons story serves as encouragement to future generations of the possible success and the memorable experiences that can be accomplished in a most honorable career.
