I just wanted to get back with you tanker man.

I took my SERE training in Hawaii in 1960 with FAETUPAC that was there at the time.  I believe the course lasted three weeks.  Two weeks of classroom instruction a week in the field and four days as a captured POW I got the "s***" beat out of me but I didn't break and passed the course favorably no food no sleep, no rest for a solid four days.

Fond memories now but it was definately  three weeks of hell.
