Golden Oldies, hey?

Cue 'In The Mood ' or 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B '.

My dad was an infantryman.

He was there for the fall of Berlin.

There was a celebratory atmosphere, of course, and he found a piano.

A rollicking boogie-woogie like you ain' never heard, man.

Big mistake.

The officers heard him, and kept him in Europe for another year before they let him go home!

That included 6 months on the French Riviera, so it wasn't all bad.

I've heard all those songs!

Except I did not think that enlisted personnel wore 'officers' pinks'.

It is a sharp look. And in the proper wool, wonderfully wearable.

They look like Marine Uniforms (Dress Greens).

I think they were Class A for enlisted, but only worn for specific ceremonial services.

Maybe for you. 5 minutes of even the softest wool against my skin & I have a painful, itchy rash. Sunday School in the gray flannel suit was a nightmare.
