November 17, 1969: El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, California.

Last active - duty formation before leaving the Corps!

And going home as a real - deal P - F - C, ha, ha, HA! :)

No more than than two (2) weeks earlier at 7th CACO HQ outside Hoi An our CO made one last good - faith attempt to persuade your truly to make one of two choices:

1) Accept a $5,000 cash tax - free gratuity plus a two (2) - year assignment to the US Marine Barracks in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


2) Same as above -- but in Old French North Africa -- at the US Marine Barracks in Casa Blanca, Morocco.

But! Campo Rancho del Gato trumped them both! :)
