    30 years ago today, my parents dropped me off at the recruiter's office to catch a flight to boot camp. They never came back and got me. Happy Halloween, I'm officially retired!

    Congrats man, and thanks! You might have the need for something like this now, minus the crappy foreign beer.

    You sure it wasn't an Air Force recruiter's office?

    Sh*t, I'd have done 20 in the Girl Scouts if I could have been an AO! (Not quite sure how the Chief initiation would have gone, though.......)

    Hell, I've been in business since before I retired. I've probably got 10 more years left before I decide my body can't hold up, and then I'll take a desk job. Always wanted to write. I'll supplement my income by doing strip shows at retirement homes.
