I am soon to be retired after 38 1/2 years. I got drafted in 71, entered basic at FT Ord in 72. Been to Iraq twice,Mosul region, and Afghaniatan once, was pretty much from end to the other there. My body is shot, my mind is burnt out, I am definately ready for setting the clock to Island Time. Maybe we will get a chance to hook up on my way down. Leaving around 9 Oct down the ICW, I have 30 days leave to get to southern florida. I'll plan on spending a night there on the way down. Jeff

It was an adventurous, albeit cultural experience as my friend Linda Rincones and I drove from Punta Cana to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. Initially we traveled west toward Boca Chico where we approached our first fork in the road. Confidentially we chose the wrong prong. After a ten kilometer cruise we took a gander through a neighborhood which luckily led us back to the correct prong. A few hours later we approached three more forks. We took each one in stride appreciating our…See More
