Default 47 years ago today, while it's not fishing

I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

October 3rd, 1967, 10 days after my 18th birthday I Raised my hand and swore the oath of enlistment, I've never regretted it for one solitary minute, (there were a few moments here and there where I asked myself what the ....was I thinking)

On This anniversary,,,to those who went before me....to those who served with me and to those who came after me and have kept the faith....

I salute you and thank you for your service to our great nation...

OOHHH RAHHH !!

RANGERS LEAD THE WAY

Thanks for your service. I pledged that same oath on Dec 22, 1966.

There is no greater honor a person can have more than willingly joining the armed forces in a time of war.

Thanks, guys.

I didn't have to serve; was in college during the Vietnam draft.
Thanks to you guys who went over there, I was able to complete my education. From the heart: thank you.

Thank you for your service!

Out of respect I didn't want to hijack this thread yesterday, but I was surprised by the title as I had seen the exact same title
(47 years ago today) elsewhere in a different context earlier in the day
October 3, 1967 was the day Woody Guthrie died

Happy Anniversary.

Decided not to make a career of it, but no regrets, either.

Served 20 proud years in the Air Force, flew F-106 and then the A-10 aircraft, what a blast! I didn't care too much for the politics as I got older and rose up through the ranks, but the flying was always worth it.
