GROTON, Conn. - At 92 years young, David Hamlin, also known as “Pops” is still serving his nation, or rather, those who serve his nation, with a smile.

Hamlin is the “most senior” bagger at the Submarine Base New London Commissary.

A native of Society Hill, South Carolina, Hamlin joined the Navy in 1943 and served until 1946, then enlisted into the U.S. Coast Guard where he served until 1964.

He has worked as a bagger “off and on” since 1995.
