Once upon a time during a long forgotten war in Southeast Asia, Ronbo was young and a soldier in the U.S. Army Security Agency (ASA) whose unofficial motto was, "In God we trust! All others we monitor."
This is his salute to the "Top Ten Percent" of the U.S. Army who were intelligent and physically fit enough to be allowed to enlist in this elite unit that was disbanded on January 1, 1977 by those who didn't want to be monitored.
After I completed the AIT (Advanced Individual Training) for infantry at Fort Jackson, South Carolina in late October 1966, I signed up for the U.S. Army Security Agency (USASA) and flew from Columbia to Boston on a Boeing 707. This was the first time I was ever on a big airplane! As we left the ground, all the features faded away into unimportance. I did not want to look back, just forward to the trip and a few hours of freedom - feeling like a human again. The in-flight meal was fun and watching the "stewardi" was refreshing.
Well, some of us anyway!
