Touring the USA coast to coast, border to border, from Honolulu to Long Island and Anchorage to Miami installing computerized dispatch systems. Not bad, paid to see the country and do a very enjoyable job.

After about 8 months of being out, I went back in for Tank Mechanic training at Ft. Knox and then I went to the 3rd of the 33rd Armor Bn. in Kirch Goens, Germany. That place was a hellhole. I later finagled a transfer to Augsburg, which was a much better duty station. The Artillery wasn't any fun, though.

As someone who has just returned from an overseas trip to the 3rd world, I take exception to your reference "once great nation". We are currently a great nation and are getting greater every day.

Working in the oilfields of Kansas and Oklahoma, which I still do today, and loved it then and now. We had our first baby girl that year and I was 22 years. She is now a doctor in Wichita. Time flys so enjoy the journey, as that's what really counts. And this is still the greatest country on earth!

Shoveling snow, I got $10.00 to make a path (or tunnel) so people could get in or out of their houses. If I really worked I could get 2 houses a day done. Big bucks for a young kid off from school in 1977...... Did you sleigh down off your roof? Wish we would have taken pictures! Thank you for reminding me!
