I met a guy tonight that was in Vietnam, in the navy. He remembers the war, and was a gunner. It’s been decades since I’ve spoke with one, and I’ll be damned if tonight wasn’t worth every second. It’s amazing to hear the shit that happened, and to top it off he’s an ex Motorola employee. A microprocessor guy during motorolas upbringing.
I stayed the night at the bar. I can’t leave this.
And I had my orgasm of a conversation. I spoke to them about world war 1, world war 2, Korea, Vietnam, gulf war, Afghanistan, etc… It’s so nice hearing the insight of others older and dammit… It was so worth it. Excuse me as I enjoy this feeling.
