Hey, I joined in the late 80’s!

youngster...

As I may have mentioned to you before during our days in A Coy (sorry Hile - just slipped out), I was initially always the youngster.  I was commissioned quite young.  Anyone Cpl or above was older than me.  Thank God for 18/19 yr old soldiers or I would have been even more self-conscious.  I used to dream of the coming "age plateau" when I would be "normal". 

There is no plateau. 

It's a sharp peak.  One struggles  up the youngster side, eyes on the summit.  Then you wake up one day sliding down the other side and realize you are older than everybody else and just a boring old fart....
