 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

Keeping by fly buttoned up, my ammo dry, watching the world turn, buying lots of rounds for my AK and CAR 16 carbine in preparation for what could be WW III both domestically (thanks to the liberals) and globally.

Other Comments:

  From 1966 to 1970, I held the Guiness Book of World Records for the Most TDY assignments ever bestowed on one trooper. In my perfect 20-20 hindsight, I'd like to go back to the 60's and kick a lot of asses that needed it ; especially LTC DeVane's skinny ass, provided more covering fire, burned out more M-60 barrels, tried one "joint", R&R'ed in Bangkok, drank a lot less Bud and Kulmbacher, asked either Chris Noel or Judy Thompson (Waycross, GA) to marry me, and kept a sleeping bag as essential gear in my Huey1 Delta.

Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
Reforger in '69

Worst Moment
The night WW III almost started when the Soviets moved into Prague (August 22, 1968 I believe). A German LTC is writing a book about that event from the German, American, and British viewpoints on what we were all doing that night. The crux of the whole thing is that we were on a USAREUR wide alert at the time and were unaware the Reds made the move. The Reds began to interpret our alert as a tactical response to their incursion.
