    40 years ago today I was off to basic training in the U.S. Army. It sure seems like yesterday to me. Where did time go?

    I'm not far behind you as October 10, 2012 will be 40 years since for me.

    Hard to believe sometimes that I've been retired for 18 years...

    My daughter's reporting date to begin basic at Ft Jackson was:

    September 11, 2001

    Things got a bit hectic that day (I was in Finland on a business trip) and she actually began 2 days later...

    I sometimes forget my birthday, but the enlistment date stays at the forefront.

    Ladies and gentlemen thank you for the service. Without your sacrifices and dedication this country would not be the great country it is.

    09/80, almost 30 years ago, it does seem like yesterday. Where does the time go?
