Where were you?

1. Where were you when you heard that Ronald Reagan died?

Work, in the break room, watching CNN(Cable News Network) Headline News.

2. Where were you on September 11, 2001?

Getting ready for work. Read about airplanes and something big on my LJ friends list. For some reason, I thought I'd be able to get onbase to work that day.

3. Where were you when you heard that Princess Diana died?

Lying in an empty barracks room in Monterey, the weekend before my refresher training in Korean.

4. Do you remember where you were when you heard Kurt Cobain had died?

Seattle, strangely enough. I believe that was the weekend I arrived from Korea on assignment to Fort Lewis.

5. Take one for The Gipper: Whatâ™s your favorite flavor of jelly bean?

Watermelon. It's red on the inside and green on the outside, man.

6. Where were you when Magic Johnson announced he was retiring from the NBA(National Basketball League) due to AIDS(Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)?

I was in Korea, or so says the calendar. I don't remember.

7. Where were you when Reagan was shot?

Probably in school. I was 10, what do you want from me?

8. Where were you when the Challenger exploded?

High school. It was . . . memorable and shocking.

9. Where were you when the OJ verdict was announced?

Again, according to the calendar, I was in Korea. I'm sure it was a big deal at the time, but the most memorable part of the OJ murder thing was while I was at BNCOC(Basic Noncommisioned Officer Course) in Arizona, watching the lowspeed chase on TV.

10. Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?

At DLI(Defense Language Institute), learning Korean to defend the free world from the commies and keep fighting the good fight of the Cold War. Shit.
