It was 56 years ago (8/8/61) that I was woken up at 0330hrs to the soothing voice of a DI at Ft Jackson SC screaming "ON YOUR FEET!!" ... and I'm thinking "what the hell have I done!!??"

Considering that I never 'expected' to live 56 years, the fact that at my age now, I can look back at all the 'fond memories' of my life for the next 6 years, is pretty amazing... What it has become today ain't even close to the US Army that I served in back at that time, and considering what it has become, I would not do it again.

But I've never been sorry that I did it back then.

May God Bless and Keep all of you that have served, and are still serving.
