Bob , Larry and I were stationed together at Fort
campbell. I met Bob and Larry on the way to boot camp on the bus. They talked about signing up to go airborne, because doing so meant they would stay in the states, being married with an 8 month old son this sounded good to me, so because of them I went airborne. Bob and Larry 2 great guys I am so glad our paths crossed.
