1. I remember making that call from Ft. Benning, GA, May 1966

Had to stand in line to use a pay phone. My father had been dead a couple of years, so it was my "no drama" mother who took the call. Of course, I was a draftee, not a volunteer, so the situation was a bit different. Your son will be just fine and make you even prouder of him than you already are.
