Enlisted in the Army after high school graduation as a medic and lab tech. Basic at FT Leonard Wood and AIT at FT Sam Houston. Then it was on to Mons, Belgium and SHAPE HQ to work at the 196th Station Hospital and was then reassigned to the 6th General Dispensary in Brunssum, The Netherlands at a NATO base called AFCENT. Finished my 3 yr hitched and returned the US to REFRAD from the active Army at FT DIx over the 4th of July weekend 1976. Because it was the 4th of July weekend the Out Processing Center had shut down for the weekend. So a bunch of us took off for New York and the big 200 year Anniversary Celebration in New York. That was the best 4th of July ever! Anyway, I am still in the Army Reseverves and will retire after 40 plus years of services in all branches of the Total Army. I have been a PVT to SSG (E1 to E6) and 2LT to COL (O1 to O6). Have been to 40 plus countries on 7 different continents. My favorite ribbons and awards - my Army Good Conduct Medal (I did not get caught medal) and my Antartic Service Medal (freezen the reason). It has been a great ride and I could not have met a better group of military buddies along the way.
