    That's what they were called in the 1960's.
    You had fatigues, for everyday wear, then khakis, then Class A Dress Greens.

    The fatigues were OD Green, and were the same world wide, except Vietnam. There, they were a different style all together, called jungle fatigues, and were made of rip stop fabric instead of plain, heavy cotton.

    Calling them Battle Dress Utilities (BDU) was something that started after I was out.

    Another benefit while serving or after retiring is the use of many lodging facility's on military bases . Regardless of branch . There are some with camp grounds and even fishing hunting and golf courses. On our motorcycle trips we have taken advantage of it a few times. When it worked out for us. The Navy lodge in Millington TN is small but it is outstanding. We stayed there on a 40th anniversary ride . We were married in the Shelby county court house in Memphis. We also rode around and visited what is left of a once busy Naval air Station that is now a support center.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

    While I was in okinawa (working at CID) I needed some muffler work done on my nissan bluebird car. I asked one of the Japanese interpreters for a recommendation for a shop to do the work.

    I ended up buying 3 bottles of whiskey and leaving them in my trunk.. dropped the car off, work got done.... somebody stole the Whiskey while it was sitting in the parking lot at the garage.. they did not have cameras so I never reported it... The garage owner felt so bad he never charged me

    Where we were, the only civilians were peasants. Even the Viet Cong didn’t come that far north.
    We had to contend with hard core regulars of the North Vietnam Army.
