The pleasure palace at Woodstock opened 46 years ago on August 15, 1969.
As it happened, I was at Fort Benning near Columbus, GA, doing officers’ infantry basic training.
Not saying that was a better way to spend some summer days in August. One thing: seems like we probably had better weather in Georgia, the Woodstockers got rain several times.
Of course, no one is surprised whenever I mention (at least four times in the last 46 years) that I didn’t go to Woodstock. Even if I hadn’t been on active duty, I wouldn’t have gone.
But it was a big thing.
