    July 1966, US Army. Basic at Fort Benning, Ga.
    Failed PCPTs with pre-existing medical conditions. Discharged.
    Although Basic in those days was tough, it wasn't any harder than being raised by a WW-II USAF Flying Staff Sergeant. He was an Areal Engineer, Crew Chief, Top Gunner and tough as nails. Maybe that is why (being accustom to taking orders) I became a Squad Leader after the first week.
    Regret not having served. Had I gotten the first problem fixed and worked past the asthma issue, I would have liked to have served in the USAF as did my father and my eldest son.

    As God is my pilot, it wasn't meant to be.
    Thank you all, for your service.
    May we keep the freedoms that were so valiantly preserved.

    Yep, as a young Lad I marked the calendar by holidays, birthdays, school over, and school starting. Later on, it was the before mentioned, plus anniversary dates. Now days, it is when I need to refill prescriptions.
