Thanks to all of you who replied and served. I'm appreciative.

US Army, 1967-1970.
All expense paid trip in 1969 to The Land Of Enchantment, aka Vietnam (I volunteered).

Preppermama, my outfit in Nam (1st Infantry Brigade, 5th Infantry Division) was on loan to the Marines. We came under Command and Control of the 3rd Marine Division and operated with them along the DMZ from Khe Sanh to the South China Sea. Even today I have more Marine vets as friends than any other branch.

Ditto for me on that one. I'll never make it to the forces now but we got the greatest boys on the earth out there fighting for us.

Never been in the military. Always wanted to, but i always wanted to be a fire righter so i tried that. And after years of school and classes. I havent achieved that yet. But i am still in school trying to get a career. And if this fails. Military is my next resort. I was in JROTC and went to boot camp for a week. And loved every minute of it.
