I did not have to jump through any hoops to volunteer in '78, thankfully. Had a choice between Savannah, Ga. or Ft. Lewis, Wa. Am glad I chose the latter as I loved to hunt and fish and the terrain up there was what I envisioned for Rangering. The rain did suck roids in the field, but I still preferred that over the humidity and the heat of the Deep South.

Took some left coast GWOT Rangers to Savannah for business after they got out. Did the Kevin Barry, River Street deal. Took them to see the Azaleas in bloom on the squares.

Later over beer they said.. "you guys are assholes, but after being here.. I get it".

Names will not be mentioned to protect their <2>

Yeah. It would have been nice to have an airfield that only took C-130' and like aircraft. But noooooo. We have to be next to one the fucking space shuttle could land.

Running or road marches...wasn't a huge fan of perimeter road. Sam Spears ran my mouthy ass around that mutherfucker one time wearing a mop bucket on my head and carrying a mop at port arms. I had to mop up pot holes while he followed me in his vehicle.

The right to remain silent might work with LEO's...but not with Sam Big Foot Spears....heh heh heh
