This was my first ever plane trip. Going to boot camp at MCRD Parris Island S.C. I don't know why I got dropped off in North Carolina, some storm I presume. Boot camp done, 30 days leave then 3 mos in Huntsville AL. at redstone arsenal. two weeks eave before going oversees and a flight to NYC for those two weeks. I board the plane, and one of the flight attendants is the same one I had seven months ago. Needless to say, we visited. I lost her address and name. When I got to boot camp and reported in, I was asked "what are you doing here"? We were about to call your family. I asked "what for"? It was then I found out about 401. My prayers went out to all those less fortunate and their families. It was a shocker.
