    I was a USMC draftee serving on Okinawa keeping our country safe from ladies of the evening. Was thanking my lucky stars that I didn't end up in Nam as so many draftees did. As a matter of fact, I remember thinking when I got drafted into the Marines in 68, Viet Nam here I come.

    Very Nice! I had a '70 SS 396. That was when I was 19 and out of high school, though.

    Fifty years ago I was 11 years old, just finished the 6th grade and was anxiously awaiting the moon landing!

    I was back in Vietnam, this time as a Pilot flying Hueys, I had been there before as a Combat Medic. I decided that the Infantry way was just a lot of miserable work, not for a smart guy like me. Nope, easy aviating was for me.

    15 years old and seeing just how much trouble I could get into. I turned 16 late in the year, and found out the family alpha male could still lay waste to my best laid plans. Big Daddy Incorporated ruled the roost until I was out and about, on my own. We always seemed to butt heads, but what I didn't know until later in life, was that he was proud as punch when I joined the military.
