USAF 1961-1965. Enlisting was the best decision I ever made....

For my dad Ken, drafted and served 1951-1953 U.S.M.C. Never went overseas but the stories about boot camp made you cry with laughter. Told me not to join but 18 and a "man" why not? U.S.M.C. 1983-1987. I have some stories too! To all our veterans god bless.
