When you're in the military, you can always count on one thing . Stuff happens! And, unless you're actually in harm's way, the stuff that happens is typically zany, unexpected, and ultimately funny.
I know that's the way it was for me.
While there was the real Vietnam War a few thousand miles west, I was stationed on Oahu, and those two years provided me with a whole lot of Waikiki Beach-time and humorous story-telling material.
I've been entertaining folks with my "war stories" ever since my discharge.
So, c'mon, go fix yourself a mai-tai, relax, get ready to smile a little, and let me share 'em with you.
