Callirhoe Posted September 17, 2013 Share Posted September 17, 2013 Poem, Where The Wind Blows - Army Memories Ah memories sometimes they make you reflect.The base I was stationed at was one of two Army training schoolswhere there was just as many females as malesand there was a lot of partying going on. Sadly, I only made two friends while stationed there and miss both guys dearly.For most of my life I have been a loner my whole life though not by design. When I served it was during the first Gulf War.I had a big mouth and got into fights with several guyswho are suppose to protect your back both during basic trainingand during MOS training.I guess I should have kept my big mouth shut for the most part. One night while I was stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TexasI went downtown to eat and then I walked around where the Alamo exists.Sometime well after midnight I walked into a hotel bar.There were a few couples dancing like drunkards to Jazz played by a band.Also a few men sat at different tables alone guzzling there jugs of beer. I wanted to dance but there was no single females in the club.I walked out and saw a few bums begging on the streets.I went back to the barracks and went to sleep. Several times I went to where the trainees went swimming by the pooland also there was a large recreational roomwith many arcade video games and several pool tables.Also, in this recreational hall there was also a large roomwhere recent movies are shown on a movie style screen. Thinking back on some of what transpired during my one year stint in the militaryI don't know if I should have ever served, but it is a part of my life I reckon.I got out of the service receiving a general discharge like I never had served.
