Third Marine Division, I Corps, Quang Tri Provence '67 thru 69. 2 tours. A stones throw from the Z. Radio platoon. Returned home E-5.

Set up radio relay equipment and kept communications up between LZ's and fire bases and bases like Dong Ha and Con Thien, Khe Sanh, PHU BAI, LZ STUD and the base at the QUA VIET RIVER to name a few vacation spots. Most of the LZ's or fire bases or base camps had a team of 3 Marines at that local who's main job was to keep the communications up and running 24/7.

Linguist, radio operator, intel analyst, first sergeant. AFSCs 202x0, 203x1, 208x1-4 and -9, 209x0. Don't remember the AFSC for first sergeant, but it was the best enlisted job in the Air Force.

I started out as an Infantry grunt (Canadian Scottish Regiment - Princess Mary's) in Oct 1990. Then went on to a different trade and trained to be and was a Combat Engineer. After 13 years of combat arms and beating the body up, in 2003 I switched trades one last time and remustered to the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and currently take on the job as a Weapons technician land. I've been a Sgt since 2012 and get full retirement in 2015. A good job for a true gun nut!

My unit went to a bad place. 50% were killed in 2 weeks. Over-run by North Vietnamese regulars. I still shed a tear or two on the Marine Corps birthday. (They created veterans day the next day so that Marines would not have to work with a hang over.)

50th Signal Battalion, 35th Sig Bde (ABN). Telecommunications in the field. Grenada. Central America, Africa. If the USA went, we went. All Secure Commo for the 18th ABN Corp went through us. Field excercises with Top Secret stuff ordering tactical battlefield nukes were truly frightening.

My time in the service was probably before some of you were born.
Went into the regular Army on my 17th birthday (Feb 11th. 1962) . Basic training at Ft Carson, Colo.
AIT at Ft Knox Kentucky. M48 A2 tank crewman
Arrived in West Germany in July of 1962. Stationed at Binlach. W. Germany. D Troop 1ST Squadron,
2nd Armored Cav. We patrolled the border between West and East Germany. Whileat the border we patrolled in jeeps or on foot if you were in a long range patrol.
Back at base. I drove, gunned, loaded and commanded the tank crew at different times of my being stationed there.
In June of 1964, I rotated back to Ft. Meade with the 11th Cav. On Feb 11th 1965, I received my much sought after discharge.
