    I was in the Air Force 30 years ago. Having seen how the Air Force lived in Vietnam I decided that was the way to go. Stationed at a SAC base just outside of Columbus Ohio.

    Trinity was five. She was a ornery independent little cuss. Still is.

    30 years ago, I was paying all the first graders a nickel each to beat my little brother up during recess.

    Thirty years ago I was in the Army and stationed in Germany. My oldest son was 4. Now I am going to have flashbacks *sheesh*

    There and a few other places too! Of course, I still go to a lot of those places because of my job. The treatment is a lot better for civilians (especially us old guys) than I seem to remember it being for young soldiers!
