|BASIC TRAINING 1962|
|(WHAT A JOKE)|
|Started Basic in September 1962
Weapon Serial #1951, M-1 Rifle
The company that started right after me were issued brand new M-14s.
They were all Cubans and they sang Cadence in Spanish.
(Who would of guessed we were training them for the second Bay of Pigs.)
|Things I Learned in Basic Training, Ironing clothes and spit shining boots and floors (I already knew how to drink beer!)|
|Notice the rifle racks, with weapons. This was in 1962 when soldiers could be trusted with weapons. 1962 and I don't remember anyones name.|
