I went to basic training & advanced individual training at Fort Jackson, SC from there to Mannheim,Germany 181st Transpotation Battalion 41st Transpotation Company. I came home 14 months later for my dads lung sugery & while I was home got married on a cruse ship & crused the Bahamas for 7 days, then back to Germany for 4 months.

I lived in West Germany for 5 years, my son (Blake) was born in Heidleberg he's 23, still in school & at home, his girlfriend is Portugeese. My second tour to Germany was to Sandhofen on the out skerts of Mannheim I was asigned to a NATO/CENTAG signal unit and held a NATO secret security clerance. I've been to East Germany before the wall was torn down, France, England, Luxembourg, Switzerland, South Korea. I went through desert survival training at Dugway Proving Grounds Utah. Days were 125 degress nights 30 below. I went through Artic survival training on the tundra in Alaska where tempratures were 70 below wind chill 140 below. Never new what time it was, the sun never came over head it just rotated around the herizon. It was always dark or always light & even though I damn near froze to death it was still one of the most beautiful places on earth. Alaska was beautiful Utah was strange, every training mission I ever went on around the world I always had a current map. The one I had for Utah was 1951. While crossing the desert I came upon a 16 inch gun from a battle ship, what a site in no mans land. I later concluded It was a weapons test area & no one had been there sense 1951 to make new maps. It also would explain why I was given a radiation dosey meter & chemical test equipment. I qualified expert with an M 16 rifle, M1911A1 45 Pistol, M 60 machine gun (my baby for 7 years), M9 9mm pistol, M 203 gernade launcher, M24 700 remington bolt action rifle, Winchester 1200 12 gauge shot gun, M2 50 cal machine gun, M 72 Law anti tank weapon, I was proficient with BGM 71 Tow II missile system, M252 81 mm mortar, M18 Claymore mines & C4 explosives . I've flown on C130 Hercules, C141 A&B models, C5A Galaxy, UH 1 Huey, CH 47 Chinook, UH 60 Black Hawk & AH 1 Cobra. Was a Motor Sergeant From 82 till 89 in these units [HHC 724th Maintenance Support Battalion (Missile Maintence) 24th Infantry Division (Mechinized) Fort Stewart, GA.] [97th Signal Battalion NATO Sandhofen, Germany. Could tap into any & all communications leaving or entering Germany.] [1st Squadron 9th Calvary Air Attack/Scouts (The Headhunters) Fort Lewis, Washington. The eyes & ears for the 9th Infantry Division (Mechinized).] Now I live & work ( as a weldor ) in West Palm Beach, FL am happy with my high school sweet heart (Michelle) & where I am in life. Still want to travel to a few more places. I'm glad I left Clewiston when I did & saw what I seen & done what I did. I have good health & good fortune 10 more years till 30 with the State of Florida & full retirement. Boy has time flew.
