    Army '66-72. Drafted in the beginning and stayed another 4 just for kicks.

    Radio Operator, 05B, (morse code type) and 05B4H instructor. Also served a short time as a Drill Instructor 00F.

    Bounced back and forth between PFC and Sgt (E-5) for the whole period.

    The bounce sort of implied you had a good time. I'm glad you did as that was not a fun time for many.

    Enjoy :celebrate

    I had good duty until I took that extra 4 years. They were not the greatest.

    What I referred to about a good time was hell raising. I bounced back and forth in rank many times via punishment for not following all the rules to the letter.

    That's the way I read it.

    You had to blow off steam or the stress would get to you, if you know what I mean.

    And most that served, particularly in the Army and the Marines know much more than they could ever tell anyone about other than another vet.
