    Just want to see why you decided to join the military?
    Was there a event or special reason for going in and or staying in?

    I joined the navy in '63.

    I had always wanted to go into the navy; ever since I was puppy. And it was everything I had expected. But in '63 we were all subject to the draft, and the first question they asked before talking to you about a job was, "Have you got your service done yet?"

    I stayed in 9 years.

    I always wanted to be in the Army as long as I could remember. I wanted to jump out of airplanes, go to far off places. I guess I watched too many comercials. Be All You Can Be.

    It is an experience I wouldnt trade for all the money in the world.

    I felt it was my duty. I left a job as a consultant with the oil companies, had a mortgage, two kids. Was 26 when I enlisted. Signed up for a three year hitch and reupped for another three.
