Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.

Any of you want to comment. Maybe you know this man..??

Unfortunately, I couldn’t run fast enough. They caught up with me and didn’t release me until 21 years later. I miss those days!

Cheers!
