Why It Was So Great to be a Kid———Back in 1967!

nas·cent
ˈnāsənt,ˈnasənt/ adjective
1. (especially of a process or organization) just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.

Bottom Line: If you were a kid during GIjOE’s earliest, nascent days of the 1960s and ’70s, then we’re probably preaching to the choir. But if you didn’t come along until much later, you may not realize what you missed (so sad). If so, we highly recommend one of the most fond memories many of us adult Joeheads have: the “Capture Hill 79” GIjOE contest. Even if you lived through this early period of Joe history, we recommend you watch the TV commercial again, because when you do, it’ll all come back and your day will be MADE. So…Watch it. Know it. Remember it. Capture Hill 79!

    Personally, I never won anything from that contest. Any and all the maps I got were no good. It never came out fair. Only some kids won and it was always far, far away from where I lived. I never heard from Hasbro as to who won the big money or the items they offered. As a kid, I felt taken!!! (No fun for me.)
