It's been a number of years since I started my blog, A Soldier's Tales, and I am going through the posts I did about my first tour of duty in the Army from 1957-60. I decided to revise/rewrite them and post them again. My first post will soon appear about enlisting and making it from the Inprocessing Station to Basic Training.

As they progress, they will take you on my Ocean Cruise to Europe and the train ride of Bordeaux, France. From there by bus to the 1st Platoon, 581st Engineer Company (Field Mainenance) at Landes de Bussac.

I look forward to your reactions and comments. Check it out @ http://lvcabbie.blogspot.com
Enjoy

Not yet but have heard what an awesome film it is.

If anything, I hope it will make people think twice about voting for Shrillary.

Another follow up on the story of my first Army tour all about coming down with the Asian Flu (among the very first) and then to completing Basic @ A Soldier's Stories http://lvcabbie.blogspot.com

Enjoy. And don't forget the boxes at the end where you can indicate your reaction and the place below that for comments.

Thanks.

I've just continued the story of my first tour of duty in the US Army with a bit about my arrival by train in Gay Paree and further travel to a place called Camp de Bussac just north of Bordeaux. It is just the start as I have far more to write about my little over two years in the land of wine and perfume - and explaining why the French invented it. Check it out @ http://lvcabbie.blogspot.com

There are three little boxes at the end of the blog where you can indicate your reaction to it. And, if you wish, comments are always welcome.
