    ...........or join the military!?

    A four star general played drums for the Ventures.

    Do you remember the Ventures and Babbitt the drummer who played "Walk Don't Run"?

    Do any of you remember the USAF four star Gen. George Babbitt? Anyone who thought the military is all spit and polish and discipline can see how the USAF handles it. I met Ret. Gen. Babbitt may years ago at Wright-Pat AFB though I no idea about this part of his background until receiving an email from a bud.

    Pretty cool
