Another life ago, I was finishing up on putting an electric fence up by the garden fence, helps keeps the dogs from tunneling in.

It was a pulse fence, our dog heisted his leg just as it pulsed. He walked around humpbacked for a couple of days.

69 first half I was in the 11th grade
69 second half I was in the 12th grade.

I skipped school in the 4th grade to watch John Glenn.

The 6th grade was interesting. First half JFK assassination. Second half the British Invasion started with the Beatles first American tour. Keith Richards still looked alive back then.

Woodstock happened my Sr. year.
Like Al Bundy one night I scored 4 touchdowns for my high school.
After 4 years of varsity football and gaining a little over 1000 yards rushing in 200 carries it turned out I was a number 2 draft pick out of high school.

Yup the 60s were fun.

I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, because my parents hadn't even met yet in 1969.

Once upon a time; many, many years ago, in a land far, far away the guys called me Doc.

In Costner's Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer movie, he had a number. The number he wasn't able to save. I have a similar number - their names are on the wall in DC. I was actually pretty good at being a Medic. One couple of days, the battalion surgeon grabbed me, had me glove up, and talked me thru doing a chest tube. He then watched me do one. After that he stood up and in his best command voice said "NEED A CHEST TUBE? - HE DOES IT." I wound up putting 5 more in before it was over. I saw the sun set and rise twice during that time.

Dogman, Welcome Home Brother.


an after edit - I used to not share some things about a certain period in my life unless it was one to one with a Vet. I was having some issues with PTSD. I'm on the otherside of that now and will share things because I know how much in terms of individual history us close mouthed Vets don't share.

Example - The night my step-son graduated from college the family was having an after dinner at a popular place in Nacogdoches. I looked around and saw on a Marine cover the word Chosen. I walked over and politely asked if the gentlemen was one of the Frozen Chosen. He gave me a penetrating look and nodded his head. I then said, "Sir, I know Marines do not salute inside but as a Veteran I'm going to render to you the proper Honors." I braced and saluted. He stood and returned my salute. His family (son DILaw grandkids) were staring so I explained. I said, "Your Marine served in Korea and survived the fight the Marines had with the Chinese Army. They brought out their wounded, their dead, and almost all of their equipment. ANYONE who was there is a stone cold absolute Hero in my books." I looked at his grandchildren and said, "Your Grandfather will never say he is a hero, he probably will say that he served with a bunch of heros." I looked at the Grandfather and said, "You owe it to your buddies to tell their history." I then shook hands with him and said, "Welcome Home Brother.". Doing my part to not lose history.
