Went cause I had to, not because I wanted to.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Yes a Huge THANK YOU to all who have served in every branch of the armed services. The country owes you for keeping us free to enjoy life.

You're welcome. Perhaps you should thank my local draft board also.

If you haven't heard of the Honor Flight program, it's a great way to say thanks, some long overdue

John, Oliver, drafted means probably Vietnam. Even more reason to thank you. Whether you wanted to or not, You did your duty for us. Not the draft board.

Yes, you are correct about Vietnam. I blush to admit that I actually volunteered to go to Vietnam. I know it sounds crazy, but there was a reason. Lieutenants in my battalion at Ft. Bliss were getting surprise orders to be in country within 20 days. I decided I would rather know I was going, and when. So I volunteered. As a result I ended up attending a six-week refresher course at Ft. Sill, and had 30 days to arrive in country after that. Don't believe them when they say, "Never volunteer."

My five years in the military was both challenging and rewarding. I have no regrets for my service.

I got high lottery numbers so didn't have to go. I still honor the soldiers who served, but not the politicians who set up rules that thwarted soldiers at every turn. It amazes me the courage those who served in Vietnam showed, and disappointed by the terrible reception they got when they returned. So thank all of you.
