Yup, necking as in going to the submarine races. I got pulled over for using one in a curve trying to get my girlfriend to slide over next to me. Cop didn't think it was funny.

I have never been to Ft. Ord, I did my Basic in Ft. Bragg then moved around and ended up in Germany. But 68 was the year I went in. I was older than most as I was married for a while and wasn't draft-able until I divorced her. Trust me, it was worth it.
