'71 - '74
1st duty station = Baumholder, Germany - MOS-Spoon (Cook)
2nd duty station = Heidleberg, Germany - MOS-Army Choir, Bass Section - The music selections sucked, but the duty was light as heck. Training drills consisted of doing scales using different consonant and vowel sounds, ie: la-la-la-la-la-la - oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh - do-dee-do-dee-do-dee and so on. Heck, I'm workin' up a sweat just reminiscing about it!
