I was Vietnam draftee with a safe job. Signal Corps, pole line construction, the cable was all buried of course. I knew I lucked out with my MOS but I didn’t fully appreciate how lucky I was until a few years later. Hats off to the combat troops and direct support troops.

I spent a couple years cleaning up loose ends in Nam, 76-78. Lost a few friends over there myself. Marine special ops, salute to those who came home and a prayer to those who didn’t.
