As a former member of the oldest American service branch from 69' to 71' as an anti-tank assaultman or 0351 which translates to grunt when in country. 1st time I heard of that ARMY translation. Outstanding!! Okinawa was an interesting stop over before the fun began. Interesting to learn about our main mode of transportation aside from our feet the CH-46 and CH-53.

USMC 1974-1977  Field radio operator.  I was a Hollywood Marine (went to boot camp at MCRD San Diego and spent rest of enlistment at Camp Pendleton) Only time I left USA was to got to TJ.  Spent many a weekend in San Diego.  This was when the harbour area was mostly strip joints, topless bars, mssage parlors, adult theaters, bookstores, and sex shops. Being a twenty year old from Arkansas, I had never seen anything like it in my life.  I here it has been pretty well cleaned up for decades.
