As the 2nd Infantry Division's Courier, I drove a daily 100-mile loop in my
Jeep, from Tongduchon to the DMZ, delivering each Brigade's mail and movie
s. Mostly dirt roads and mountain trails at the time.
My Jeep was tricked out with a hard-to-get canvas top/doors, and a crossed-
flag signal company spare-tire cover that boasted: "You've seen the rest,
now meet the best". 122nd Signal Battalion.
Nice thing about being the courier was that my issued weapon was a .45cal p
istol, not an M16. When I walked into any of the many local bars, as was o
ften the case on the trip home, the .45 strapped to my hip always elicited
extra respect from the hookers.
Also, the MPs never messed with the courier jeep. Wherever I was headed, th
e pedal was always to the metal.
As I recall, PS magazine often used a couple of hot bikini-clad chicks in t
he cartoons to keep us kids reading, one Caucasian blondie, one African Ame
rican gal. They were fine fantasy material for any 18-year old. Might eve

Thanks for the link to old memories. Good times.
You're welcome. Anyone who really does metalworking, or maintains
their own vehicles can learn a lot of useful tricks in that archive.
There is a fair amount of information on all types of weapons, from
handguns to tanks. :)
Anyone wanting to run for any political office in the US should have to
have a DD214, and a honorable discharge.
