    I remember Tinian as my father fought there as well as on Saipan. But I'm also a military history nut, particularly WWII in the Pacific.

    Not necessarily an automatic go. The only way to know, is to apply for a new waiver IF a recruiter will do the paperwork for you. Good luck.

    No clue when he'll get a leave. All the powers that be have gone totally stupid over Kung flu, CRT, and a bunch of other crap. Also, even if he asks for help, there is nothing you could do, nor...

    Short answer: Yes.
    Long answer: Is it worth the possibility of office hours to obey a silly order that is easy to obey? It's not like the corporal is ordering you to go out and dig a 100-foot long...

    And you want to get it squared away as soon as possible. If you end up owing Uncle Sam from overpayments, they will take it back, often in one lump sum. That hasn't changed. I asked my #1 daughter...

    I smoked Kools for years until I quit. Salems were trading material par excellence with the Vietnamese to get things built. Amazing what one pack of Salem's could get. All 17-cents worth.

    Russ, no it hasn't passed yet. However, most protestors stopped playing in the roadways when the police got aggressive with arrests. Here in the Orlando area anyway.
