Everybody i've ever known who went in -went in for themselves either because they lived out in the middle of nowhere and there was nothong else to do -or went in for the g.i. bill -college .
That comment was stupid enough to belong up in the Nightforce Clarity thread.
About this time of year some 38 years ago Special Forces 1Lt Dennis A Calton of Baraboo, Wisconsin died up on the DMZ trying to save a friend.
Dennis was scheduled to go home in 8 days. It was not even his turn to run the mission but he volunteered. Dennis had a degree in Geology/Mining from Arizona State University and around his neck on his dog tag chain was the engagement ring and wedding band for his fiance.
