1966 today

Enjoyed my whole career, did not have a posting that I did not enjoy, met the most wonderful people one could imagine, with a few who are still best mates even now. Wife, Chris, of 23 years, still in love, have the best kids, twins (18 Years old), boy & girl, Stacey And Troy. Still enjoying life to the hilt. The 17th Intake reunion down in Sydney a couple of years ago was just the best time ever. Hope to catch up with some of the guys again.
