That's the innocuous question I was asked almost in passing. I didn't give it much thought at the time. Matter of fact, I forgot all about it. Later, as I was getting ready for bed, I was surprised it came back to me. So I wondered, what was my earliest memory? How far back can I really remember? I drifted off to sleep with this question mulling about in my mind. All of a sudden I sat straight up in bed. It had come to me.
May 25, 1977.
Then, it began.
So, to answer the question, what is my earliest memory: My earliest memory was the moment I became a stormtrooper.
