another year of being able to walk around
I was one of those six week people. I only remember getting on the bus, but not being able to join because of being new. I remember being called to the TechSgt's office for some kind of reprimand or other & having high heel patent leather shoes on. He asked why I was wearing those & I told him it was after duty hours. He looked to a female Sgt & she nodded her head lol. I wish I could remember names - that was a lifetime ago...I do remember that TechSgt wore mirror sunglasses lol

What You Want For Christmas

for my family to have everything they want
I remember being a scared kid getting off the bus from that long drive from San Antonio. Someone was there to greet us and ask "does anyone play drums or a horn"? The rest is history. This was late June. I loved being in the D&B. I also worked weekends at a loca radio station. We were in the 2 story barracks across from the exchange. Best times of my life. I remember being promoted to drum sgt and getting that special private room at the top of the stairs in dorm 1. The bugle sgt had the private room in 2 and the drum magor had the room in 3. We had a great corp and if you could only go back and do it gain.
