    OMG! That makes me feel my age; I remember the shots of the helicopters taking off from the embassy roof on the tv news...

    I have recollections of seeing ARVN Choppers being thrown off the side of a US Aircraft carrier to make way for new ones who managed to get out of the country.

    I was in elementary school when that happened. Watching all that made me so angry. I won't get into the politics of it all, but the conduct of that war is the prime motivating factor in shaping my national political outlook since.

    Brings back memories as I was at Police Training College at Bruche, Warrington (Ex WW2 Camp).

    It doesn't seem all that long ago and now I am thinking like Cpt Sensible about my age.

    I missed out on the lucky number coming out so it gives my age away also.
