Jerry Barber’s story is included in museum’s display
Military tattoos bring back memories
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
A local Navy veteran recalls when he received a “dolphin pin” and a tattoo — all on the same night.
It was 1958, and Jerry Barber had returned from a trip to Pearl Harbor. He had just been promoted and was qualified as a submariner.
In order to receive a submarine warfare insignia pin, Barber had to learn about water, air and hydraulic systems, as well as tracking a target and setting a torpedo.
