OK ... August 1969 I enlisted for artillery OCS and flight school. Basic in Missouri, Advanced (13E20 Artillery Fire Direction Control) at Ft. Sill and Arty OCS (class 14-70). Flight School for Army helicopter pilot in Alabama. I volunteered for RVN (you should have seen the fight THAT caused when my lady discovered I'd volunteered after I'd been home 5 years and out of the army for 2 years). I was in the 120th AHC (the DEANS)/1st Avn Brigade post-6-13851498085196_thumb.jpg

 

http://www.vhpamuseum.org/companies/120avco/120avco.shtml; I was in Snoopy platoon and I also flew with the Razorbacks for a very short time. I managed to almost break my neck, learned a few things about small unit tactics, and then went back to Ft Sill for Pershing missile school and nuclear weapons employment officer. I was with the 72nd FA Gp post-6-13851498085989_thumb.jpg in Germany. I was medivaced out of Germany back to Ft Sill and a Pershing Missile unit. I medically retired out of Ft. Sill - delayed reaction to an RVN injury rendered me unfit for combat duty - worst day of my life at the time.

 

That is the short thumbnail of where and what I did. I was 20 years old when I was commissioned. I turned 22 crossing the international date line (I LOST my birthday that year - went from day before to day after - what a bummer and I WANT MY YEAR BACK!:rolleyes: )

 

Some of the best years of my life were in the uniform and I still miss it to this day.

While you're waiting among the regular enlisted ranks to advance on to FMF, see if you can get your command to send you to SAR school.Search and Rescue swimmer http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=7152

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
