Fun Fact: Doug Gilbert was my roommate from the 1st day of indoctrination to graduation day, including the freshman and senior cruises. When Doug and I first met, he saw my name tag was E. F. Gagnon and asked if my name was Ernie. I told him my name was Ed and he said he liked Ernie better. Pretty soon everyone called me Ernie, including the Admiral, with most not knowing that my name is Ed. To this day, my classmates still call me Ernie.
