What branch and where at? That has to a proud memory.
Thank you for your service.
Side note-As a "boot" in the USCG my company was selected to march in 200th anniversary of Lexington/Concord battle. Flew us up in C-130 Herc to Otis, marched over the bridge in Concord and due to weather, could not return the same day back to Cape May NJ.
They found quarters for at Fort Devons. That was a bad idea, our ninth week of boot camp without beer, women and the CC (Drill Instructor) was not around. We hit every EM club on base and all were AWOL reporting back that night, all shit-faced.
I was the "Recruit Commander" and got my ass chewed out by CC, also shit-faced, as he was holding on to the door jambs to avoid falling over. Weather was not much better the next day. C-130 is not the flight for a hangover.
