    Fort Jackson for Basic, Ft. Leonard Wood for AIT. I don't miss it, but I do think about it quite a bit.

    I remember after throwing fake grenades for a bit, we finally went to the live grenade range where we got to throw two live grenades. The first one i threw without a hitch, the second one I pulled the primary pin and thumbed the secondary off and as i leaned back with my arm extended to throw the grenade, the range Sargent in the hole with me grabbed me and shoved me to the bottom of the hole. You could feel the tension and stress in both of us as we crouched in the bottom of that hole staring at a live grenade in my hand with both pins pulled. It was like a mental count down, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.....as we stared at it. Of course, i sill had the lever squeezed tight, but you worry that maybe as he grabbed me i released it enough that it didn't fly off, but activated the fuse....

    The all clear was given (someone on another lane threw there's off course or too early) and i popped up and threw it!

    Resident De-Bunker. I'm blunt because I don't have time to indulge your fantasies. Treasure is found down here on Earth, not on Google Earth.

    Jones, forgive this ole Devil Dog, but I read where you were in Aberdeen Proving Ground in 73. I went to Boot Camp at Parris Island, and straight on to Aberdeen Proving Ground for my MOS 2111 Small Arms Infantry Repairman training (Armorer) in May 1976.

    graduated high school 64 drafted 1965 basic training ft Gordon oct and it was hot but I had just spent the summer working road construction so heat was no problem for me others not so good. stayed in Gordon for mp training upon graduation half got a trip to Vietnam other half dispersed over the world. I was the lucky half spent my entire time at site "R" ft Ritchie Maryland guarding a big frigging mountain called the little pentagon, saw many top brass but never the president! I was lucky many of my brothers were not! never forget those who gave everything and always stand for the anthem and flag!!!! those who don't or wont can go straight to hell.
