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!

Best Friends
SFC Willy Williams, SGM William Beaty

Best Moment
Night Life in TDC.

Having to leave Korea. Loved that country, especially their food.

Other Memories
I was a 31V30 working in a 79D slot at HHC 2nd Infantry Division at Camp Casey as their Career Counselor, then I was moved to Headquarters 2nd Infantry and worked as Assistant Operations at Post Reenlistment under Sergeant Major Beaty. SFC Williams was the Operations Chief.

1980 before I left Korea, I received my first of four MSM's.
