Although my personality never quite fit the Marine mentality I was proud to serve and made it out with an honorable discharge. It was the end of the Vietnam war and being a Marine wasn't popular. But, I never ws much of one to care what anyone thought. I moved around a bit and eventually wound up in California where I installed the computers at the El Toro base. The base is no longer there but I have a lot of memories that are.
