                      U.S. Marine, 1st MarDiv ground forces, Viet Nam 1966-67. Also North Carolina, southern California, and Okinawa. I was a 2531/2543, a field radio operator/communications centerman. Later, 3rd MAW, MCAS El Toro, CA. Finally, with 3rd ANGLICO, 1984-86, as a forward observer/RTO. I remain in contact with brothers I served with 40+ years ago, and I follow the accomplishments of this generation of Marines with admiration and pride.

                        USMC, '74-'99. Semi-retired. They won't let me out until 2016.

                        The usual places... All 3 Divisions, a couple Air Wings, Okinawa, Middle East. Out of the ordinary was Kuwait and Germany.

                        Started out a machine-gunner, then computers, missiles, computers, artillery, computers. But the missiles and artillery were computers, too.

                          USAF, 8th EMS with the Wolfpack (8th TAC) Kunsan ROK. I was a 31631L in the bomb dump, touching up paint on LGB guidance heads, Sidewinder and Shrike Missiles. Taking ordinace out of storage testing it all and putting it back. I worked on a lot of old ordinance that is all obsolete now and out of the inventory. It was 1979, and I got out of the ROK 2 weeks before Park Chung Hee got shot by his own security chief. It was a formative experience for the young person I once was. There wasn't a "war" going on at the time, but anyone who works with rocket motors and high explosives runs a certain risk, and there is that the Koreans never declared peace with one another so there was low level conflict going on continually. As my prescription inserts for my issue M17A1 gas mask took months to catch up to me (and their lack rendered me blind whenever I had to put on the gas mask for drills) I usually was detailed to be the designated mock casualty whenever my unit responded during any sort of training exercise, therefore I can claim to have "died" for my country more than anybody I know.
