Mon Feb 21, 2005 11:36 pm

Pretty odd, but is anyone born on the 29th of February, if so, Do you celebrate your birthday every 4 years or how does it work ???

Im really curious about that

Not me, but my uncle. We always use to joke years back that he was much younger than the age that he was turning. We celebrate it usually the day before.

spelling edit.

I served in Vietnam with a guy who'd arrived in country on March 1st 1968. Our tour of duty was 365 days, so your DEROS (...return from overseas) was one year less a day from the day you arrived. One night we had this guy convinced that his DEROS was February 29th as that was the day before he arrived. This meant that he was going to have to stay until 1972.
