I was in the Army, and this was ours..........

This is my rifle,
This is my gun,
This one is for fighting,
This one is for fun.............

Thank you for the list Sir.
He was just a very close Marine friend whom I went through Field Artillery Officer Basic Course with. We went to different parts of the world just before the bombing. I was Army and have the right to wear the Green Beret.
Henley was the name of the first Confederate submarine if I'm not mistaken.
Thank you for your reply. Cos

Dad had to do the same when he joined in 1969. He spent just shy of 23 in, and only took retirement after getting orders to polish a chair with his @$$ while babysitting in Okinawa for the 3rd time. He asked for anywhere else, and requested they they find a replacement, but he was the replacement for another Lifer who decided to pull the pin.

Left, got and filled out his papers, then turned them in. that was 6\90, and his retirement date was 2 days before the first Gulf War, when his Tl ran out.
