Good on you for taking action on your ideas!   I am great at spit balling around the (propane) camp fire, but when it actually comes to putting pen to paper I usually fall short.

I come from a long line of letter writers! My dad, I have a copy of a letter from Chamberlain… he replied to my dads letter concerning WWII. He was in the RAF then moved to Army Air Corp when he became US citizen. And more incredibly he got a replacement toaster after writing to Mr Caldor (of said depot store). All ya got to lose is some ink.

good topic

i joined the army in 73, to get the GI bill for college $.  the vietnam war was done, so little/no risk of going over there. did an office job - personnel records specialist :), lived in northern italy, and generally had a great time, toured europe, and grew up.  i was a totaly different student when i entered college.  it sometimes seemed that i was 5-7 years older than my classmates, when i was only 3-4 yrs older.

i didnt 'like' the army, but figured out how to get through it.
