Seeing as my father spent 27 years in the army, served in WWII and Korean war, my 2 older brothers served one hitch in the army m(Following my fathers footsteps), I exchanged my dependent ID for an active duty Navy one in Sep 68, kept it as a salvage diver until I again exchanged it for a retired ID 21 years later in Aug 89. And just to mention, my father-in-law spent 23 years i n the Marines (WWII), then my son spent 20 years day for day in the Navy.

I got married to my Highschool sweetheart 'cause you wouldn't be drafted. They said "You believe that sh## boy ? Load the bus" Served two years and made buck Sgt when I was 20. '66 & '67 Armored Cav. and when I got out I still wasn't old enough to go into a bar in Texas! Shoulda rolled over into the Air Force. My Dad 20 yrs and my step mom 16 yrs Air Force, uncle retired Navy. Youngest brother Army, next youngest, Marine One, President's chopper service through 2 Admins, retired Marine. Yes we were drafted, but none ran away.

I was told by a friend that enlisted in the AIR FORCE, because they had no KP & GUARD DUTY. it was done by civilians that were employed for that purpose. CIVIES ON THE GATES & SERVING IN THE MESS HALL. WOW!, did I make a mistake.
