Johnnie Ramos
Class of 1970
Army, 3 Years

I was drafted in May of 1972, joined in July of 1972, went into service August 16, 1972. Spent 16 weeks of getting into shape at Fort Jackson SC. A.I.T. was at Fort Gordon, GA where I learned how to turn a radio on, that's what they call a 31 M 20. After training there, I was transferred to Fort Carson, CO where I spent the rest of my tour of duty spot painting trucks in the motor pool. I actually got orders to go to Viet Nam in 1974, but they were rescinded due to the US pulling out of Viet Nam. To this day, I still have regrets of not staying in and retiring from the Service. I wouldn't trade my 3 years in the service for anything. My heart goes out to all Service Men and Women.
