    All joking aside, military uniform design was used very early to attract women. I will never forget the first day the new ROTC members wore their uniforms to high school when I was a sophomore ('67). I took it rather seriously - cautioned myself to question if I ever was attracted to a guy who wore one: Is it the guy or the uniform?  

    A vet from WWII or Nam called Thom Hartmann today and relayed his first day of gun instruction. The NCO doing it put his hand on the issued gun and said 'this is your gun', then put his hand over his crotch and said ~'this is for fun'.

    The alternatives are out there. They don't make enough money to be advertised.

    FWIW, I'm a Wildcat ('75). Reading your diary was that much worse, remembering the time I had spent at Nichols, on the grounds on foot or my bike. You are a remarkable person, from a remarkable family. Thanks for sharing so much of that pain. Hopefully it was somewhat cathartic.
