Kennedy sucked me into the system with his “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” speech and put a cap on it when his life was taken.
I joined the USAF in March of ’64 just before my 22nd birthday and served till March of ’68.
Worked in TTY maintenance keeping M-28’and Crypto gear running. Spent time of course in San Antonio then shipped to tech school in Wichita Falls, TX, (ahh Fran, I should have married you, what a summer that was.) Next came the com center at McClellan in Sacramento, CA and finally a couple of years in the Philippines with the 1st Mobile Communications Group with a few visits to Saigon in ’67 & ’68 before discharge.
An interesting four years and I still personally feel that every able-bodied male and female in this country should spend some time in support of his or her country.
But those four were enough for me and I was glad to get back to civilian life and good old Capitalism.

Be careful calling yourself a expert,because an "EX" is a hasbeen and a"SPERT" is a drip under pressure.

Well first fellows thank you for serveing our great country. I volteered for the Navy but was rejected becaused of my hearing problems then sent my greetings from the Army and again rejected this went on for ten times at the induction center and on the last time the told me not to come back. They thought that I was faking the hearing test until they gave me a computerized test. So my Job from then on was to help produce food and service all the girls that I could to keep them from going stir crazy while everyone was fighting hard for our country.
