Other Comments:

After retiring from the Army in 1991, I worked part-time at a Radio Shack in the Hampton Mall in Hampton Roads, VA. Moved from VA in 1993 to Gatlinburg, TN and lived and worked about six months for a Chalet Company. Moved from Gatlinburg in June 1993 to Cookeville, TN, and graduated from an Architectural Drafting School in Livingston TN, then moved to Dale Hollow Lake in Pickett County TN where for about ten years I ran my own Professional Photography business and also worked part-time at a local Funeral Home.  In 2004, I moved back to Scott County Tennessee where I was born and raised, in Norma to be exact, and for a few years I worked for FOUR OAKS FUNEERAL HOME before finally retiring for good.

Now, I'm loving retirement, and just trying to stay out of trouble!

Chain of Command
My Communications Officer was Captain David Bell, who was also a Pilot and I flew with him a couple of times.

QUESTION: Since I was stationed in Vietnam with the 12th Combat Aviation Group from January 1971 until January 1972, what Campaigns or Battles was my Unit involved in during this time, and am I authorized to be recognized for any Awards, Ribbons etc, for them?
