I was wounded in Vietnam on June 10th ’69 and was sent to Japan. After I got back to Nam, I found out I lost two buddies (Jeffery Alan Schonfield and Larry Dale McGhee) on Aug. 10th ’69.

After I got out of the army and came home, I went from job to job and was angry all the time and still am. I went into Law Enforcement in 1982 and got out in ’96, thank God I did, ’cause I was on a road of destruction, but didn’t know at the time.
I’m 100% SC now and with help of my family I’m living day by day.

I got married in ’72 and still married to the same woman. I don’t deserve her but she has stuck by me through the years. We got 3 children, 2 girls and 1 boy ages 28, 25, and 19 and 3 grandchildren 2 girls and 1 boy.

I live in Okla. now, my hometown was Marlin, TX.

I lost my Dad in ’94 and my mom ’95, there were 12 of us in the Family (9 boys and 3 girls).
