Air Force from '83 to '87. I spent three years at Rhein Main AFB, and loved every minute I spent in Germany. Then they made sure I was sufficiently motivated to go to college and sent me to Minot, ND for my final tour. It worked...!!!

Enlisted in the US Navy Reserve 1964. Went to OCS in the summers of 1964 and 1965 (almost flunked celestial navigation) and was commissioned in the USNR in June of 1966 after I graduated from college. Went on active duty later in June of 1966, followed by 2 relatively long tours of sea duty, first in the amphib fleet on an LST, then on a DLG. Saw the world; had lots of sex; drank too much; didn't pay a lot of attention to national defense. Left active duty in September of 1970 to go to graduate school. Resigned my commission a year later, unable to find a reserve billet. I sure could have used the money. How time flies.

A proud draftee ( Navy ) 1965-1967

VR-8 ........NAS Moffett Field CA .....Jan 66-june 67
VA-128.....NAS Whidbey Island WA.....June 67-Oct 67

I doubt there were many DRAFTEES in the 60's who had better duty than that !

Joined the Army in June 1960, one day after I graduated HS. Spent 2 1/2 years in Germany going back and forth between Munich and Augsburg. I was in the 3rd Engineers, attached to the 724th Maintenance Battalion, 24th Infantry Div. I moved back and forth between the 2 towns so many times, at one point I somehow wasn't listed at either barracks and slept on the floor. Lived out in a tent on bivouac a good part of the time, 3 months at one point. Then the "Wall" went up and everything changed. Had quite a time.

When I was approaching the end of my career, I would have loved it if Holy Loch was still open. So I could have served my last tour there. Then I could have had a reasonable chance of retired there as well.

so you were a Locarno regular then
