I joined and left for the Army the day after I graduated High School. I am an Infantryman, 11B. IMy date of induction was 2Jun81. The reasons I joined were many but the main reason I joined was that I figured I owed the country that much. My Dad was a former Navy guy and I loved to hear his stories. I was proud of his service and he would have been proud of mine I think. I am a 100% disabled veteran and a lifetime member of the DAV. I travel frequently by air and always thank troops in uniform and shake their hand whenever I meet them.
