The story behind that is short. I had taken the ASVAB test and apparently scored fairly high on it because about a month later, I got a letter from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO offering me a 4-year full ride. Unfortunately, I wear glasses and I’m a woman, so they wouldn’t let me learn to fly so I turned down the scholarship. Now, all these years later, I feel foolish because I could have been set for life … more or less. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply I guess you’ll always have that “what if…” in mind.
