It just occurred to me... it was 35 years ago today

I left for Basic Training in the USAF.

Where? Mine was Great Lakes, Ill. 050877. Responses from fellow vets would be interesting.

I left for Ft. McClellan, Alabama August 3rd, 1982… Finished in Regensburg, Gemany in '85 (loved it there)… I guess that makes me older than you Will… Thanks for yours and everyone else’s service!

@jw11,

Yup… Seems you have me beat by a few years… but just a few.

Thank YOU for your service too.

I’ll never forget getting on that plane… Also, getting processed late at night… And the very short “8 hours of proper rest” (probably was only 4) before facing that 1st day of training.
