My brother was drafted in '62 and spent 18 months in Germany as an MP. He called it "A million dollar experience that I wouldn't give you a plugged nickel for."
I enlisted in the Navy and spent 4 yrs as a helicopter electrician and for the most part, I had a great time.
Like a lot of other things in life, I think a lot of it is attitude.
