I have boots older than most of you.



Unlike you, my boots are still in good shape.

I RETIRED from the Green Machine in 1989. Back in my time, you would register for Selective Service at 18- but you would not register to vote- THAT was 21. But depending on your state, you COULD drink (3.2 beer)

Register on line? What line? Clothesline? No such thing as a personal computer then. Hell, you still DIALED a phone- which had a cord, and belonged to the phone company.

If memory serves its a Mach 3 Turbo. Great razor but the replacement blades will break the bank! Don't worry about it bud, I don't use that expensive stuff anymore. I generally buy the cheapest pack of disposables at Walmart I can find. I think it costs about $2 for a pack of I think 12, which usually lasts me 12 weeks. Ultra thrifty.

I did not register with Selective Service when I turned 18. However, I had already been on Active Duty for a year when I turned 18.

Old marching cadence-

GI beans and GI gravy,
Gee I wished I'd joined the Navy

Hey young soldier- Don't feel blue
My recruiter was a liar too

GI meat & GI greens
Things are worse in the MARINES

GI Brass and GI boots
Gee, I wish we had some hootch!

I used to hug my High school queen,
Now I lug my M-14
Ive been caught here and there singing cadences when I thought I was alone...

I signed up at the post office shortly after my 18th birthday (a long time ago, in a galaxy, far far away), 2 years later, while on active duty, I received a letter from the Selective Service folks fussing at me for not signing up. I called and asked them if they wanted a copy of my contract. They verified who I was and apologized. Said that it was a mix up. They still owe me my damn razor!!!
