Your idea, so you start the thread: "What car did you own or buy right after you got outta da war?"Thanks for the Good Thoughts and right back at you!!! Somebody had to stay home and pay my salary - $333.33 as E-5 in 1971 - not much by Today's Standards but I was able to save my Bucks and buy a '71 Plymouth Duster, when I came home.
We had GREAT food at the USCG Air Stations. Except for that one time that I got a stomach virus. Not sure what those slimy black shoes were eating aboard ship, but we had guys that didn't like lobster tails bringing their plates back to the galley untouched!! They wouldn't let us bring the unused food home either.The Army gave me direction, focus, discipline, an appreciation for how food is NOT supposed to be cooked, and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t reflect back on that time. Thank you for allowing me to serve.
