49 years today the Six-Day War started

Six-Day War, also called June War or Third Arab-Israeli War, brief war that took place June 5–10, 1967, and was the third of the Arab-Israeli wars. Israel’s decisive victory included the capture of the Sinai Peninsula, Gaza Strip, West Bank, Old City of Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights; the status of these territories subsequently became a major point of contention in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Hard to believe October 1967 I was drafted into the U.S Army.   By March 1968 I would be in Vietnam fighting the VC in I Corp.
