What are you doing now:
After my 2 year U.S. Army committment, I returned back to Wisconsin to my old job of working at the Gulf gas station that I had before entering the service. I then worked at International Harvester truck company for 10 years, then I worked at another truck company Wisconsin Kenworth for 18 years. My wife and I moved to Arizona in June of 1996. I got a job working in a prison as a Corrections Officer in Tucson, AZ. Then my wife and I went to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department 7 week training academy and became Detention Officers working in their jails. After two years, I went from there to the City of Tempe AZ Jail as a Detention Officer and retired from there after 15 years. After battling cancer, I am happily retired going on 7 years. I got divorced in 2002 and am happily married to a wonderful woman for the last 15 years. Living every day to it's fullest.

Vietnam War/Counteroffensive Phase V Campaign (1968)
Start Year
1968
End Year
1968

Description
This campaign was from 1 July to 1 November 1968. During this period a country-wide effort was begun to restore government control of territory lost to the enemy since the Tet offensive. The enemy attempted another such offensive on 17-18 August but his efforts were comparatively feeble and were quickly overwhelmed by Allied forces.

In the fall of 1968 the South Vietnamese government, with major U.S. support, launched an accelerated pacification campaign. All friendly forces were coordinated and brought to bear on the enemy in every tactical area of operation. In these intensified operations, friendly units first secured a target area, then Vietnamese government units, regional forces/popular forces, police and civil authorities screened the inhabitants, seeking members of the Viet Cong infrastructure. This technique was so successful against the political apparatus that it became the basis for subsequent friendly operations. Government influence expanded into areas of the countryside previously dominated by the Viet Cong to such an extent that two years later at least some measure of government control was evident in all but a few remote regions.
