Flunked out of the U of Wisconsin in Mar 65. Enlisted in the USAF in order to avoid the (near) certainty of being drafted into the Army. After basic training, I ended up in medical corpsman school and then was permanent stationed to a SAC base in northeastern Montana. After three years there, Uncle Sugar, in his infinite wisdom, offered me a choice of going to Puerto Rico and getting out on my regular discharge date or to Canada (Goose Bay, Labrador) with a small extension on the enlistment. I can't speak Spanish, I hate hot weather, and house lizards are not my cup o' tea, so I went to Goose. Discharged 19 July 69. SSgt E-5
Bottom line, I enlisted to avoid the draft and got sent to dodger's paradise without jeopardizing my citizenship.
