Thirty-two Years Ago

On August 6, 1975, after 544 days in-country, I finally left Turkey and returned to the United States.  This was my first assignment in the Air Force and it sucked, big time.  One year and five days later some terrorists attacked the airport in Istanbul, I think they hit the Pan Am counter where I had stood a year before.

Same shit, different day, different year, different decade, different century.

God Bless America.
