    My dad was a retired Army W-3 too, served in Korea and before that in WWII in the Pacific in the Navy. Lied about his age to get in, which was common I think. Passed away 3 days short of his 47th birthday, too much drinking and smoking. Which is how they dealt with the stresses of war in those days I guess.

    My dad was in during Korea but never went. He did do two official TDYs and one full tour in Nam but was constantly back and forth for a few weeks at a time when we were in the Philippines. I got lucky, two weeks before I was to go to Nam Nixon started the draw down and I went to Panama instead. My dad finally passed a couple of years ago almost a year after my mom died.

    Same with my dad -- WW2 and Korea.

    Same issues.

    Massive PTSD nightmares.

    Same early death.

    My mom told me she had woken up a couple of times with my dad choking her with bad dreams. He would have nightmares all the time flailing around in his sleep. He made it to 82 years old but smoking and heavy drinking finally killed him.

    Actually I WAS breastfed and my mom had huge German kazonga's as do my sisters after her as well.

    I am used to being around big huge kazongas so smaller breasted females seem more attractive to me -- B's and C's.

    A's are too small.

    D's, E's, and EE's are too big.

    82 is not bad. That's still 10 years longer than his generation's demographic.

    I had 4 numbers assigned to me by the USMC.

    Can't remember them all now.

    Infantry, arty, naval gunfire, and legal/admin.

    They're all on my DD-214 but I don't want to dig that out of the safe.

    Well, my marines called me Doc........ What funny is my primary billet was DT (Dental Technician) but I was also cross trained as a CA (Corpsman's Assistant), typically a rating that freed up Corpsmen for non field hospital duties but you know the military....... I ended up unofficially FMF in Panama when the Corpsman rotated home and I was the only cross trained "medic" left, Gunny and Top put me through the combat paces....... :lol:
