In 1966 as Vietnam was in full swing my buddies and I joined the Naval Air Reserves. We all thought that would be a great way to serve our country and avoid being drafted in the Army. Well it worked. My buddies sent me pictures of themselves on an Aircraft Carrier heading for Italy and beyond. As for me, I didn't go to Vietnam with the Army, I became a corpsman and went to Vietnam with the Marines. I was a grunt corpsman. I'm still a grunt corpsman( in spirit ) Semper Fi Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
