    I tried to join in 75, they didn't want me. I went logging instead and did my best to help pay for it all. Thanks everyone for your service to this great country of ours! !!

    PFC ( proud bubblegumin civillian ) Chairborne Ranger, Keyboard Assault School, Ft. Campbell, Ky jelly. Naw, I was a 64C. Truck driver. Later went for a secondary MOS, petroleum supply specialist. Gas station attendant. I was never very smart. Still not. I did manage to get hurt badly in spite of my tame MOS. I should have got out but I stayed long enough to retire, but early. ( medical)
