 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

Keeping by fly buttoned up, my ammo dry, watching the world turn, buying lots of rounds for my AK and CAR 16 carbine in preparation for what could be WW III both domestically (thanks to the liberals) and globally.

Other Comments:

  From 1966 to 1970, I held the Guiness Book of World Records for the Most TDY assignments ever bestowed on one trooper. In my perfect 20-20 hindsight, I'd like to go back to the 60's and kick a lot of asses that needed it ; especially LTC DeVane's skinny ass, provided more covering fire, burned out more M-60 barrels, tried one "joint", R&R'ed in Bangkok, drank a lot less Bud and Kulmbacher, asked either Chris Noel or Judy Thompson (Waycross, GA) to marry me, and kept a sleeping bag as essential gear in my Huey1 Delta.
