sorry John About not being on here I had to have a kidney removed due to cancer and then I had to go back into hospital because my organs were starting to shut down on me. I had to go on Dialisis for about six Months but I recovered from that. I am not on Dialisis any more. I now have renal cancer that has mastated to both of my lungs am doing fine even with that. I hope this finds you well and enjoying life.
Though my time was years later than yours, I suspect you and I were alot alike. 2nd Cav was my first assignment and I too had plans for college and no plans to re-enlist. I signed up for 3 years and that was what I was going to do, and that is what I did. I followed my plan and got out of the Army after those first 3 years. As fate would have it though, I realized shortly after I got out that I missed it all. One of those "don't know what you got til it's gone" moments. Plus, I realized I was pretty good at being a soldier. The final fateful nail in the coffin had to do with a girl I left behind in Germany. Long story short--I was out for a whopping 11 months before I showed back up at the recruiters office and said sign me up again. That girl and I were married, I was back in Germany again and I never looked back.
