Happy Birthday! Congratulations on making it this far, and thank you for your service.
Your service made it possible for me to inherit a free country that I could serve, and when I was done, I passed it on to another generation, still free. And the line continues, unbroken...
Happy Birthday!I have a list that looks quite a bit like yours but a decade later. Enjoy your day!
remember stuff while you still can
Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.

Early or late?
Happy Birthday some of those I participated in. But during recess we played smear the queer. One person had the football and the rest of us went after him. After he was tackled someone else grabbed the ball and ran and we would chase after him. Of course that would not work in today times.

"we've gotta roll with the punches, learn to play all of our hunches
Making the best of what ever comes our way
Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"

Happy Birthday Sir! Enjoy!
I know it’s an old post. But a fun read anyway. I missed all of that. But I’m glad you were there for it. Thank you for your service.

Add me to the list, Happy Birthday!! I remember some of the same things !!
Hell, That's what a few slugs of Whistle Pig will do to you. Well just consider it an early wish!!
In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man
is a shame, two is a law firm,
and three or more is a congress.

I wished you HB last year, I see. I think I'll wait until the actual occasion this year to do it.

too mean to quit!
Not criticizing! Just noted the date after reading some of the posts.
I experienced many of those same things. I missed out on all that "returning veteran" fun. I was in the army from August 1955 to August 1966, but spent the great majority overseas. 9 years in Germany, one year in Iran. All told, out of that time I spent less than a year in the states.
Anyway, happy birthday even if it is late.
I'll be 81 next month and do remember a lot of the craziness from back in those days.

Happy Belated Birthday! This hit home with me as I fondly remember my Elementary School principal Mrs Brown used to have a wood shop crafted paddle complete with drilled holes that I was graced to have met with a few times My parents would agree that such a "lickin" was obviously warranted by my misdeeds no doubt
