dude thats awful, dring my basic in Ft Benning, we cant even read a newspaper throughout the whole trainning, I cant imaging a computer and internet. I had no clue what was going on in the world. especially in the first month, of total control.. When I was done, my friends asked me if I saw American Pie? . Makes me want to punch the guy that was in my police academy, for showing off how tough he is for being in the airforce..

Not ragging on the airforce, but atleast you tell it how it is.. I respect all branches..

this day in 1981 I was probably screaming that my diaper was full. I was a late learner I guess.

1981

I had been married 3 months

This probably when I got the desire to have a Jeep. I have wanted one for as long as I can remember. So it had to be about the time I got married
