On June 12, 1969 I went to the recruiting center in Sherman Oaks, California (San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles) to enlist into the military. There was an 18-month waiting list for entry into the national guard. There was a 6-month waiting list for entry into the Navy. The Air Force didn’t cross my mind. So, there I stood outside two recruiting offices . . . one marked “U.S. Marine Corps” . . . the other marked “U.S. Army” . . . and flipped a coin. 

I was inducted that evening . . . in downtown Los Angeles . . . into the U.S. Army.  Two days later I arrived at the reception station at Fort Ord, California.

Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .
