    in may 65 some in my HS graduation class were getting draft notices. I was not able to get to get the money for school, so i joined the Navy may 26, I spent four years in a F4 fighter squadron.so many of my friends and class mate i have not seen since school.some times i wonder if i should of waited for my draft notice, i guess it's guilt that i had it so easy, i spent a week in in the NAS Jacksonville Hospital in 65 it was full of wounded soldiers from Nam I can still see them today when i think about that time.
