I went to 3 Different Schools in Fort Belvoir, Va. in a six month period & graduated in the top 3 in each class and was promoted in rank after each class, for graduating in the top 3 of each class. I wound up being an E5 (Specialist 5th Class) with only 8 months in the Army, I was lucky they put me in a field that was very easy for me to accelerate in, being the Metal Head i was in High School, i was also lucky in the fact that of the 125 men i went to school with, only 2 of us didnt go to VietNam, i wound up going to Germany and got to see all of Europe in my 16 months there and it was Great!
