On this date...

...in 2000 I put away my Soldier Suit for the last time, got on the Freedom Bird, and left the Korean Peninsula behind for a new life, where I wouldn't be leaving Mrs. Drang every year or so*...


*...for a year or so.
Two weeks later I realized I left that off.

20 Years ago, my how time flies. But can you still fit in that old uniform?

Drang said...

Got rid of most of them. Kept one gore-tex jacket, and one pair of BDU trousers to mow the lawn in. They both fit.

Dang, you lasted 8 years longer than I did. I retired in 92!

Drang said...

20 years, 3 months, and 3 days.
I might have lasted longer if I'd made the jump to Warrant, and/or gone into the sooper-sekrit squirrel line, instead of remaining a mundane, mostly tactical, sekrit squirrel. I try not to think about it though, because either choice would probably have meant never meeting Mrs/ Drang; both opportunities were before I met her.
