Very Well Done!

I love this pod. It’s well written, edited, and presented. The experiences shard are interesting and entertaining. Sometimes raunchy, sometimes earnest, this is unique and well worth your time. Give this one a try pod people!!!

Yup

Pretty much how I remember it (November 76, July to October,1969). By the way, “Puda” was actually PDUA - Physical Drill Under Arms and was easily the most grueling hour of my 8 weeks there. Thank for you very enjoyable and salty memoir. I hope that you do more episodes.
