John Timothy Curtis
John Timothy Curtis
Class of 1966
Army, 20+ Years

A full military career started with my draft notice. Viewing my future as a grunt at Fort Bragg and Viet Nam, I quickly volunteered for Quartermaster. Sixteen years of supplying parts for helicopters, missiles, armor, electronics, etc., I went Warrant. Ten years later I retired to ?Tucson, Arizona? for some reason. Hated it, now love it. Culture shock finally wore off. Found my new love, Jean, who I wouldn't have if I'd stayed on the east coast. Nor would I have ever gotten to San Diego. My idea of heaven on earth. Thanks for listening.
