I joined the US Army back in 1977. What a difference this Country was back then. I did my job and by in large I still miss the military. I do not agree nor condone what is going on in the military today.
We had no business going into Iraq and we sure don't need to go into Iran. I was stationed over seas for over 10 years. I was stationed in Mannheim Germany and Heidelberg, and when I was in CONUS I was stationed at Ft. Dix, Ft. Rucker, and good Ole Ft. Carson. I was a noncom and proud to wear my uniform.
When they say ignorance is bliss, the good Lord knows I was awful blissful. I met some of the greatest guys in the world and saw some very exotic places. Yep, them were the days of getting up and living life to its fullest.
I see young soldiers today when I go to the base and my heart breaks for them. They have no idea who they are really fighting for today.
I look forward to telling lies and drinking beer while I recant all those memories of me and all those beautiful women. It's a good thing my wife doesn't read what I post!
