I was drafted into the United States Army on Ponce De Leon Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia on February 20, of 1968. I was twenty years old at the time. I went through basic training at Ft. Benning in Columbus, Georgia and then to Ft. McClelland, Alabama for Advanced Infantry Training. By that time, I knew I was headed for the conflict in Southeast Asia in a small country called 'Vietnam." I landed in Vietnam on a bright yellow and red Brannif jet airplane on July 21, 1968. My first impression? The 120* heat that knocked me off my feet and a song playing in the background on a loudspeaker, "Gooooood Morning, Vietnam!"
