35 Years Ago This Month I got out of the U.S. Army

As I was working around the house this weekend I realized that it was 35 years ago this month that I got out of the Army. Did that make me feel old! As much as I disliked the army I was in the best shape physically I have ever been in and I was ALIVE. I was in the Army during the Vietnam war and even though I did not go to Vietnam there was a time I thought I may. There is something about being in the military in time of war that makes each moment vivid and memorable and you see the world in vivid colors rather than the pastels of life there after.
