Thoughts About the 58th: Enlisted to serve my country and fight fascism. It was a tremendous growing up experience serving with a unit of dedicated individuals.
Comments:
Next to marrying the gal who waited three years for me, enlisting was the best move I ever made. Still keep in touch with some of the guys who are still around and am active in my veterans post.
