LOL, More like "Oh Sh#t, what did I get myself into this time" look, I would say. I was so dang skinny went I first went in "I could stand sideways, stick out my tongue, cast a shadow and it would look like a zipper". 5' 8" and 115 lbs soaking wet.

I don't have any pics on disk either, right now.

But I had blonde hair then (shoulder length), about 125 lbs (I'm now around 140), and pale skin (I now have a tan, since being in Arizona after I got out). I was very athletic back then a lot.

Vietnam 1969.

I was a medic and we had medcap. That is where a village would be sealed off, some would look for bad guys and others would give medical aid etc.

Today my hair is gray, white really, and I have added about 30 lbs.

OOOOOO! PUFF! Can you imagine being on the bottom of that?

30lbs? You've done well, brother. I've added 90 over the years!

I don't have any pictures...the closest I could come would be from high school ROTC, though I grew somewhat before I started boot camp.I only weighed 117 when I signed up for the DEP [Delayed Entry Program], but rose to 130 by the time I started boot camp.

Welcome to Facebook | Facebook

A little to the left of center, but front and center. With the glasses that I refuse to wear now.

I don't have a photo scanned of me while on AD with the Army. But I was way smaller than I am now.

I joined while living in Ansbach, GE and shipped out to Basic in July of 92. Was a hold over for 2 weeks till a Class formed, gotta love Fort Leonardwood. Unit that supported Basic Training was part of the 3rd ID, our unit number was 3/10 something.

I went from there to Fort Sam Houston and flunked out of 91P school and ended up at Fort Benjamin Harrison or Personnel School. I spent some time at Bldg. 1 and worked the SFC promotion that year.

Moved from there to Fort Meade, MD and married and got out.

Me too. I only have about 6 pics of me when I served. And there are about 4 of me in the basic training yearbook I was in. Yeah, I never carried a camera with me a lot, because most of the places I worked were very restricted and you couldn't take pics. So, I just never really carried one around much.
