Fort Benning 1969.jpg

The Eagles sang that refrain in "Hotel California," and I was there at Fort Benning, Infantry Officer Basic Course, IOBC-10 at that time.  We weren't singing much other than Jody songs for cadence during those weeks in the red Georgia clay.


As you can see we had a few Marines in our class, just to add some spice to the mix. I am in the third row, last on the right,  alot younger, thinner and not wiser.


About half of those pictured were severly wounded or died in Vietnam.


Never forget, I haven't.
