My father never enlisted, nor did my husband. Cliff tried to sign up when his best friend joined up, but he was too overweight. An old doctor once told him he should have tried again in a couple of years, because by then the Vietnam conflict had gone on so long that the military was taking anybody they could get. Well, by then he was married with a baby on the way, so any thoughts of enlisting were long gone. Thank goodness!
God bless our veterans.
