43 years ago today

July 9, 1969 at 0900 hr. I took my oath and was shipped off to boot camp.

Man where has the time gone?

I know I'm not the oldest guy on this site, but I signed up on 9/10/59.

That was a long time ago and the world has changed a lot since then.

Re: 43 years ago today

Well, a BIG thanks to all of you who were or are in the services. If I had to do if all over again, I would have joined. I chose to go into law enforcement instead and trained alot with the military at Ft. Lewis. Again, Thanks for being there.
And yes, where does the time go??
