44 Years ago today I joined the US Army. I was in Albuquerque New Mexico, I had been hitchhiking across the US for about 3 months, was trying to go to Hawaii. I had 3 cents in my pocket and could not get a job picking beans for 50 Cents an hour, what a "reality check". Was sleeping under overpasses. Joined the Army was stationed in Hawaii for 27 months. How about you?
