Firing Up The Wayback Machine……………….aka, Where I Come From……………….

A couple of links to The Missoulian concerning Havre, Montana, the hometown of this Old Retired Petty Officer……………………”H” is for Havre as the paper says……..

The old Post Office is where I registered for the draft in 1972 after graduation and turning 18. We did it in person those days. The Selective Service Office was on the Third Floor.

Marc Whitacre stands outside the historic post office and federal courthouse in Havre that he and his wife Erica Farmer have restored as an event center, professional office space and living quarters for their family. The building had extensive damage from water leaking in from the roof and years of neglect when Whitacre, an ophthalmologist, and Farmer, an optometrist, bought it in 2011, and they have done much of the restoration themselves
