On this day in ancient history

I entered the US Navy March 15, 1979. I got out March 14, 1985. Joining the Navy, I thought my life was ending, I thought it was like voluntary prison or something. It was much better than I expected, and something that defined who I am almost more than the entirety of my childhood.

  1. Thank you fOr your service. It is because of men and women like you giving up ya'lls time that we are a free country.

  2. I was in during 'Nam and I compared military service to slavery. Of course, that was before they went all volunteer and raised the pay.
