Remember Pay Day?

About forty-three years ago, I enlisted in the USN earning a monthly salary of $97. Today an enlistee makes $1,294.50 a month. I know the numbers need to be adjusted for inflation, but fantasy of fantasy, it’s sure fun to imagine how much damage I could have done on that first liberty with $1300 in my pocket.

And when was the last time you saw a $2 bill?
