To namvet: Thank you. But If you were in-country for 3 years then it's me that should welcoming YOU. That was over 40 years ago but, hey, we made it back. I probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the Marines. I can't say what I want to say here so "thank you" will have to suffice....thank you, very much. I know this isn't the forum for war stories from old timers like us because with all the military conflicts that the U.S. is involved in right now I wonder if anyone remembers the Vietnam war. I know I'd like to forget it sometimes. But it was what it was. Life goes on. I wonder how many contributors to this forum are Vietnam vets like us. To keep in protocol I want to say that I got my first credit card, a Mastercard, from my local credit union 30 days after coming back from Nam. I was 20 years old.
