When you become that old and senile man/ woman and are only capable of telling people one veteran related story over and over and over, which one do you want it to be?<br>

Ive enlisted twice. The first time was in '89 as a 17 yr old PV1. While on bivouac, I actually used mosquito repellant instead of CLP to lubricate my M16. Granted, it was while doing this in the "half tents" we had at the time, with a red lens, and both bottles were OD Green with black writing. By morning the thing was TOTALLY rusted inside and out....actually pulled the charging handle back and it stuck in place...

Giving logistics support to the coast guard who,in turn, rescued a crew in distress in the middle of the pacific ocean. It is cool when you can save lives for a change.

My favorite memory is being promoted to CW4. I had been in the Army for 23 years at that point, and my family (parents, two brothers, sister) had not had much of an opportunity to see me "in" the Army. That promotion ceremony, attended by my mother, father, siblings, wife, and two daughters, is a top memory for me. My father passed away a few years later. I'm glad he got to see me in my element, being successful, etc.
