    Did two years of not at all dangerous service ending in 1968.  Made E-5 in two years, never AWOL, never disciplined and honorably discharged.

    Because my service was in a medical unit that could have served as the model for M*A*S*H, I actually had a pretty good time and don't mind the experience at all.  I acknowledge that I escaped
    PTSD, which was the fate of many of my contemporaries.  When I got out I was safe from the cloud over so many of my era, and could conduct my life on my own.

    Vet status is a wonderful thing to have in one's pocket during arguments over who should fight our wars or whether to fight them at all.
