My dad's 80 and also a vet. He and a bunch of his friends signed up when Vietnam started heating up in the early 60s so they wouldn't get drafted later. He never went there, ended up in Alabama, Alaska, and Italy.

My dad had finished two years of college before he enlisted. He knew calculus and trig and they sent him to the NSA for the first three years, then to Germany and Turkey with the ASA after that.

That's where my dad worked his entire career! We used to call it No Such Agency. Half of my friends' parents worked at NSA, Fort Meade, or Westinghouse.

My old man also did the sign up before draft deal. Did two years in Vietnam. 30 years of Department of Defense after that. Retired fully at 50 years old.
