I was actually going to go to the Air Force but when I waked into the recruiters building, their office was at the end of the hall. The Army's was at the beginning. Someone says "hey you need some help?" I never made it to the end of the hall.

I was going to go Air Force but the recruiter was a serious witch. I spoke to the Army guys who were cool, but SM1 was a smooth talker and got me lunch while we talked! LOL However, I had no complaints overall. Once I understood the system and started making rank life got better, and I enjoyed being underway.

When I was a young boy in San Diego, I sold newspapers to the Navy Yard and Marines at MCRD, this was 1941-'42. I knew then that the Corps was for me. So in 1952 my dream came true. The Best move of my life.

Grandpa fought in France 1917-1918, US Army.
Dad fought in China 1943-1945, US Army.
I served as a Cavalry Scout 1982-2004, fought in Iraq, and served all over the world.
My son served 4 years in the 82nd Airborne so Army is a family tradition.

I was drafted 20 Apr 1971 spent 10 years AD went into National Guard spent 28.5 years in the Guard. DOR for E8 was Dec 1987 therefore I spent more time as an E8 than all the other ranks combined. I retired Dec 2009 from the Guard. I guess I was a senior E8.

PO2 Jimmy Bones - We had to go to Meto Power to climb up over the Enterprise. We were in EC-121's 50 feet above the water. Navy was not to happy. Also almost shot down two Navy jocks on their way back because they were not squaking. Weapons officer said get a visual. F-4 pilots had a lock-on and wanted o fire.
Navy got lucky.
