Thanks for making me feel so old...all I can't backup/verify were the cigarettes in the C-rations.

Let me get my cane and I'll be shuffling back to work.

Thanks! Now I feel older. I can still remember opening a C-Ration and in the accessory pack was a small pack of Lucky Strikes. I'm not a smoker so I gave them to one of the other guys going through nicotine fits. I can also remember getting a pack of Camels once too. Each pack held 5 cigarettes. I still have a handful of P-38s.

Remember garrison caps? I'm not going to use the nickname that GI's called them. I hated those with a passion too. They were just as useless as the beret.

Want another hint about how old I am? I can still remember when they had dancers in the clubs.

Okay, I'll stop because now I'm getting depressed.

Yes...old enough to remember dancers (body movement specialists) at the clubs. I want to say that my first experience in that area was at the I-Bar at Fort Benning circa 1984...may I just say "Wow!!"
