I joined as an ROTC student, so the DOD would pay for my college

They didn't really tell me anything about why I was there. Over time, they taught me to lead.

Eh. China wasn't really seen as the threat. It was more systems and factions. We trained against Aircraft and Missiles. The location of those systems could change. The soviets sold so much, that any country could have them. So we trained to fight Mig-29s and SU-27s. We trained to defeat the SA-6, SA-2, etc.
