    Jan 1965 to 1970 Royal Marines- Saw action on the Boxing team and Burma.

    That boxing team was the excuse why I Got posted to The Arctic- Gibraltar- Some parts of Europe that I am not supposed to talk about as I was incorporated into the Navy boxing team for that. And why eventually Burma that led to an injury that cut short my service.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Not even close to being a vet, but it's odd to see this post when only an hour ago I ran across my draft card (1972) while cleaning out some stuff.

    U.S. Navy 1974-1994.
    Bunch of duty stations listed in another thread.
    Retired as an O-5 (Commander) back to my hometown.
    Really liked the first 18 years - not so much the last 2.
    If I had a wish come true this day, it would be that no additional people would ever be killed in any military conflict.
    Alas, that will not happen.
    Makes me sad that it is so.

    +1 on that I was in the last group of the lottery that got drawn for 19 year olds in 1971 my number was 91 a friend of mine that was born in 1952 and had that number the year before got drafted. They ended the draft and I never got called. Flirted with the Air force but to make a long story short never joined. In retrospect I wish I had then I wouldn't have married my first wife not that I'm bitter I would have been gone from my hometown.
