Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Paul R. Stuart, Larry Taggart, Chuck Thompson

Best Moment
Completing AIT and heading home on leave.


Worst Moment
Being locked in a Barracks for 2 weeks with 3 other guys to think about changing our minds to accept the Army's wonderful offer that we go to Officers Candidate School. They put an MP on the door to make sure that we did not leave the baracks. The only time we got out of that building over that 2 weeks was when the MPs took us to meals at the mess hall.
Other worst moments included seeing fellow soldiers that were Black being discrimated against by white town folk.

Other Memories
Being exposed to Tear Gas, Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, C.S. Tear Gas, a total of 17 times. They were testing this new gas called C.S. - We called it Chicken Shit. Besides killing your lungss, it made your skin feel like it was on fire and a lot of guys were jumping around like chickens with their heads cut off after they got hit with this Shit.
