The Selective Service classified me 1-H. That meant that in time of war I would immediately become a hostage.

None. Classified 1Y since I had to take prescription medicine Thyroxin. When I asked the recruiting Sgt. what 1Y meant, he said, "As far as you're concerned, it means women and children first."

Officer in charge of mixing martinis at the O-Club, and overseeing the duty roster of KPs and ****-burners. Made life miserable for conscripts and malingerers. Made lots of money in bribes from enlisted swi--. Went to Germany and sold rusted-out used cars to the working troops. Set up a Swiss bank account while there, and helped spur the Euro economy. Retired after almost geting caught in a fraud crackdown in the Pentagon. Drawing three pensions, never saw combat, and am glad. Oh yeah, I am 65% disabled. The "New" VA is easily fooled, and money flows, and bullshit blows.
