    Republic of Dead Cell Holler, Occupied Territories of AL, former USA
    US Army
    '71 - '74
    1st duty station = Baumholder, Germany - MOS-Spoon (Cook)
    2nd duty station = Heidleberg, Germany - MOS-Army Choir, Bass Section - The music selections sucked, but the duty was light as heck. Training drills consisted of doing scales using different consonant and vowel sounds, ie: la-la-la-la-la-la - oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh - do-dee-do-dee-do-dee and so on. Heck, I'm workin' up a sweat just reminiscing about it! :p

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...
