"The Army" #4

Finally, graduation, wearing our class A uniforms and marching onto the big parade field...I
actually got a lump in my throat standing with those guys at attention while the National Anthem
played.I actually belonged somewhere, and I had earned the right to be there.
My uncle had told me to choose the Artillery, as he thought I would want to be stationed close
to home at Fort Sill....Instead I opted to go to Caribou, maine...I wanted to get as far from home
as I could!My orders sent me to Loring AFB,where I would stay for the next 2 years.
For the first time in my life, I knew what it was to have friends...some I would see again, some
would just become memories....I was ready for new adventures.
