    Army '73 to '75 - mostly in Ft. Riley, Kansas (1st Infantry) motorpool. Not my finest hour (lots of blown opportunities). Did go to Germany for a month ("Reforger" excercises) and had a blast.
    Good news: The base opened up a huge hanger for us to work on our cars. I built a street/strip '65 Nova there and when I fired the 12 1/2-1 smallblock w/ flooded cylinders and coil wire off, the resultant explosion blew the hood right through the roof of that building! Ah, memories.....
