Fifty years ago this month I was a 2LT at Ft Bliss on orders for Viet Nam. I met my wife of 60 years and we got married in February of 68.

Starting Vietnam pre-deployment leave. A time in my life I doubt I will ever forget. Still think about it almost every day.

You know, I can remember in great detail stuff that happened during my youth, but can't remember what I walked into the kitchen to get just now!

To the OP's question, I was a senior in high school.

Regards.
