What Have You Done Since Nam

I got out of the Army and returned to my old job at Tinker AFB as a jet engine teardown worker. I re-enlisted in the Army in October, 1969 and stayed in until March, 1973. I again returned to Tinker AFB and started to college in September, 1973. I managed a music store, sold athletic goods to schools, built resophonic guitars and in 1978 went to work for Southwestern Bell (AT&T) as a salesman. I took an early retirement from AT&T in 1993 and moved back home to Oklahoma. I then worked for a high tech firm in Edmond Oklahoma for three years and another high tech firm, Gartner, for 10 years. I retired in 2006.

What Platoon and Squad Were You In?

I graduated from Prague Oklahoma High School in 1964. I was drafted at Shawnee, Oklahoma on June 28, 1966. I served with C Company, 1st BN, 12th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam from May, 1967 to May, 1968. I was a rifleman, RTO, Squad Leader, Platoon Sergeant and Platoon Leader in the 3rd platoon. I re-enlisted in October, 1969 and served with the 1st Special Forces Group on Okinawa from 1970 to 1972. I was medically retired from the Army in March, 1973. I was in the 3rd Platoon for my entire tour with C Company, except for about one month that was spent as the chief radio operator in the CP in August. When I came back from the CP, I was the squad leader for the 1st Squad.

What month did you enter in country?

May
