The Gregarious Gary Gregerson Just Keeps On Trucking

On a recent evening, Mr. Gregerson was ready to talk shop about anything and everything.
Like his stint in the Marine Corps a long time ago.
The thing is, he was drafted into the U.S. Army. That's what Uncle Sam had initially ordered.
He took the bus to Fargo with a bunch of other Roseau County draftees in February 1970.
He was standing in a long line, shoulder to shoulder when an NCO yelled out:
"Count off one to ten!"
That took a few minutes.
"All number tens take one step forward!"
Within seconds, every tenth guy had stepped in front of the rest of the formation.
