Thumbs up No, .... There I was,

Got off the bus, Ft Dix NJ. A hot afternoon Aug 8 1980. Wondering just what I'd gotten myself into? But in all honesty, I always knew I'd be joining the military. Too much "Family Tradition" to start a new trend. Just so happens I was in the very first cycle of Co-Ed trainees and, while expecting the rough treatment and tough physical testing my father, uncles and older brother had told stories about, Boot Camp was a breeze. Went on to retire.
