James P. (Phil) Neel

H & H (TF) Company 1966

I joined the 101st in Jan ’66 and was immediately assigned to the Tiger Force. I am sure that was because I already had 3 years of jungle training in Panama from ’62 thru ’65.

I only lasted thru Apr ’66 before being wounded twice and med evaced to Okinawa and then back to the states.

Following recovery, I was assigned to the 82nd and went into Military Intelligence remaining in the Army until caught up in the reduction in force in 1977. I had been appointed Warrant Officer while in MI.
