A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

Vietnam 65/66. God bless the Marines, it's 'cause of them I'm still alive. Da-Nang, The USAF, the Marines and the Army all together, shared food, beer, ice, lies, stories, steaks, more beer. Remember the Marine grunts coming back to da nang in their APCs, dirty exhausted and alive, us Air Force pukes tossing iced 6 paks of whatever beer we could get to them. Still buy Marines a drink at airports when the opportunity presents.
Son Colin did his 4 as a Marine too.
