    but with numbers on them representing movement and combat factors.  As a 9-year-old it was a pretty sophisticated game.  Relative to other later simulation games, not so much.

    I appreciate your comment and taking the time to wade thru my long piece.

    As to joining the military, I never did so nor was inclined.  I'm not a particularly brave soul when it comes to those sort of things in the real world.

      I was actively recruited for West Point, and maybe Annapolis (along with a lot of other colleges - lets just say I did well on certain standardized tests)

      I wasn't that strongly tempted though. Even then, while I was in many ways an arrogant snot, I had learned enough about myself that I didn't want to be in any profession where people would be hurt or die if I screwed up.    Same reason I'm not a doctor is why I never tried to become an Officer.
