I would have enlisted in the army, and after that I'm not sure how a recruit got posted. I'm sure that I, like most everyone would have wanted to get into the action early on, that is before the coffins started coming home, along with the young men missing arms and legs as well. Anyway, I'm sure dumb ole me would have done everything possible to go into the infantry, and hopefully go airborne if I had known about it then. The army has a way of doing things that benefits the service as a whole, not the individual, so who knows where I would end up. And that includes the MOS, unit and overseas assignments.
