RA16965369 Enlisted after Junior year in college. Felt embarrased if were to be drafted after graduation. Also felt the GI bill was not a bad idea when and if I got out alive.

During my stint with Uncle Sam I must have been issued a half dozen or so M-1's and M-1 Carbines. In addition, I was on the Pistol Team at Ft. Sill and fired the Army Colt 45, the Ruger and High Standard 22. Honestly can't remember any numbers tho. However, I do remember helping unload a supply truck while on field exercises at the Yakama Firing Center. We stacked our rifles and assisted the driver of the duece and a half set off rations. When he left he took the wrong piece, mine. It took a little doing, but, with the help of our 1st kick, Msg. Lewellen M. Chillson, we were able to track it down. For any of you who are not acquainted with Sgt. Chillson, he was next to Audie Murphy for Decorations During WWII.......gfp

Midway thu basic training the Navy switched to ssn, by then I had already burned my service number into what little brain I had. 36 yrs later whenever someone mentions service number, out it pops!

You and I must be awful close, age-wise. Started boot camp in February of '69 with service number B 56 08 18, switched to SSN shortly thereafter. Don't recall if it was during boot camp, but if not it wasn't long after.

Company 141, Camp Moffett, Great Lakes, IL.

I went to Great Lakes in June '69, don't remember the company number 'cause I hyper-extended my knee at obstacle course and after surgery had to restart boot. Finished in Dec 69.
