I took the early out, Jim. Was in VN at the time. Took 4 months off my tour. The decision was a no-brainer.

Very true, Jim, I did a lot of bouncing in those days. Pong is fun to remember!

Next February will be 52 years since I was separated from the Corps. Never looked back for about 45 years, when it became fashionable to come out of the shadows.
