Spent 20 years, 9 months and 11 days in the US Army. Went to Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) School right after basic training. Stayed in that career field until my retirement in October, 1979 as a M/Sgt. My EOD career was a never ending gong show, punctuated on a few occasions by excruciating pain.
