Had to look him up. Thanks again for the birthday lists, Gran.

I didn't serve. I was 2S then won the lottery repeatedly while 1A. But I remember the years, and some things bring them back, in strength. I was never "anti-war," despite powerful Jesus-inspired pacificm, but I have a special hate for wars that waste the best people without the drive to victory. VN was so horrible!
