And the first thing I learned was where the galley was, where the ships store was and where the life jackets were stored.
    My problem with Navy's constant trotting of his "Vietnam Vet" status is simple. He uses it as a yard stick to beat anyone who disagrees with him on matters. He's supposedly an SK who got Top Secret Clearance and ran the ship (his words). Those claims went well and fine for a few years until another member of the navy actually called him out on some of it. You ever seen a dog become afraid of a bigger & meaner dog? Yep. That happened only on this forum. Guess who wasn't the bigger & meaner dog?

    Yeah, They're probably mostly young who learned what they know from the history books written by those who had college deferments and were anti-war. The kind when you try to explain it to them in the context of the time, refuse to listen. One has to understand everything happening during that time and the mind set of the leaders of the world, the cold war, the fears of the times whether accurate of not. So usually I leave Vietnam alone. I did what I did and did what I could. That is enough for me.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Where is the IRS? The charity was suppose to give away at least 5% of its asset value or be operating outside the law! I guess the IRS was focused on "other" things!

    You'll remember that college deferments ended for the 1972 year, my year, coincidentally an election year..
    So many of my friends went scampering for National Guards, many using "strings" in other states, for the 1972 year..
    I was 1-Holding for seven years after going through AFEES in Chicago..
    Even with a low number, I never doubted that the draft was over .

    Getting a Top Secret clearance is actually given quite frequently in the military. I had one but never thought I had that big of a wealth of inside information that presented a potential danger.

    Am always leery of those who wear their Vietnam Vet label on their sleeve. The ones who generally talk about it the most were probably the ones to be far from the frontline. I am a Vietnam Era vet but not a Vietnam Vet. There are thousands like me who did a commendable job but I was far from dodging bullets. I have friends who have physical scars from Vietnam and that is all they wear on them that suggest they are vets.

    I wonder who the Obama's administration IRS has been focusing on.

    Thank you for your service. I wouldn't ever have known you were in the military if you hadn't mentioned it. Your humility is all I need to validate your claims.

    Having a top secret clearance isn't a huge deal. Running a ship, however, is. Depends on the context, though. Maybe he was just the coolest e-4 around, and that's what he meant lol
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    I was drafted in 1966, but it worked out for the best for me. A 20 year career followed up with another 26 working for the army as a civilian. I had mixed emotions on the ending of the draft and still do. But in the end i guess, what was, was. What is, is and what will be, will be.
