As the New Year begins, I decided to take another look at the past. We lived in India for two years after my dad left the Submarine Service. He was assigned to the Office of Naval Intelligence and was an Assistant Naval Attache in the US Embassy in New Delhi.
My dad spoke fluent Italian and was taking French language lessons during his time in Intelligence School, in addition to code work and spy craft. My mom was probably hoping for a posting in Rome or Paris, but New Delhi was the Navy’s choice.
In the first photo, my mom is the third person from your left and my dad is in uniform. The man behind my dad is holding his nose. My mom wrote a note on the back of the photo about diplomatic duty.
