Grew up as a military brat with my dad serving in the Army and the Air Force. Got out of high school in '66 and joined the Marines. Did my boot camp at San Diego and my infantry training at Camp Pendleton. Went to Vietnam in '67 and was stationed at Giolinh with 2nd battalion 9th Marines. Shortly after arriving I was given a 30 minute class and became a radio man ( guarantee I did not volunteer for that). I lasted aboout three months before I got shot up in an ambush. Spent the next 30 days on the USS Sanctuary then was flown back to the States and spent the next 7 months at Great Lakes Naval Base in the hospital..Marine Corps medically retired me at age 20. That was some 43 years ago.
I enjoy guns ( from the trigger end) and have a Sig 2340 pistol. A Mosin Nagant 91/30 rifle from 1941 . An SKS from Yugoslavia that looks like a new rifle and my plinker Mossburg 795.
