    Greetings shitbirds, I was usmc 66-69, vietnam 68-69. I remember at our initial signing up that some people had been drafted into the crotch. They were very upset, couldn’t believe it. They needed bodies back then and drafted a lot of trouble makers and dummies. I loved the corps but got out because I got sick and tired of taking shit from stupid sergeants and the rest. Once I rotated out I had no desire to remain in peacetime military, if you’re not fighting or getting ready to kill then fuck it. Peacetime military is boring.

  4. Carlos Hathcock. Hmmm,,,sounds like a porn star’s name.

    Thanks, Ken.

    Carlos taught my wife to shoot a bolt gun – she took one of the first classes he taught to civilians back when. She took notes – on the first day, no one else followed his instructions to bring a notebook and pencil to class, and she still crows about being used as a positive example. :D

    MAJ Plaster did Hathcock proper justice in those videos. John is the real deal too, I knew one of his old SOG running buddies at Ft. Bragg and had a chance to listen first hand to lots of war stories. Lots of folks could do worse than to read his books.
