True, because you could, but within a year things began to change. The Hippie movement started right about that time.
I remember only because that was the year I went into the Army, and the following June of 1967 I came home on leave from South Korea to find a World so different from what I’d left. The Hippie movement had begun, and I saw those freaks for the first time.

You’re correct. I had a similar experience coming back in 2003 after six years of being assigned overseas.
