Memories of Nam
The Bush, Fire Bases, Parrot's Beak, Bien Hoa, Long Binh, Saigon, and Vung Tau. Not knowing I was exposed to Agent Orange because I contracted Diabetes II. Contracted malaria when arriving home on leave returning from Nam. Never made it to my next duty station, Ft. Carson Colorado, due to Nixon's order for an early out(18 months served, 12 months in NAM, and being drafted). Was at Great Lakes Naval Hospital for 2 months recuperating from Malaria, worms, and anemia. I returned back to the Chicagoland area after the military and got married while on leave. Was happily married near 45 yrs. to one woman before she passed in 2016. I moved to Florida after that.
