1st Battalion,ABU Troops
Vietnam 1st Battalion
A Company 1968 – 1969
Rank Sgt E5
Before coming in country I was with B company 1/19 24 Mech Infantry in Augsburg Germany. Thought I would be there for the rest of my time and miss the Asian Party but Uncle had other plans.
When I got home I worked for the Georgia National Guard, training troops on the new (to them) weapons and radios.
Received a direct commission and stayed for another 4 years.
Now I work for the Occupational safety and Health Agency and live in Ft Lauderdale, Florida.
I lived on a 30 foot sailboat for about 15 years but have since gotten rid of it but got a 38 foot Ketch.
I am planning to retire in two years and go cruising with my wife in the Caribbean
