I'm 67 years old, and life is finally begining to catch up with me. Been banged up too many times to completely recover, and now I'm beginging to see those effects. Even heavy recoil from a rifle seems much harder these days that even ten years ago Brother in law is 63, and if you ever met him you'd think he just turned 50! Yet Larry and I were in Vietnam together at the sametime in the same AO, and like I said the boy dosn't look old enough.
