Required 2 weeks of basic eloctronics which bored me to sleep. Washed out. Assigned to photography school. 2 classmates went to hawaii. All the rest of us assigned to 221st Signal Co. at Ft Monmouth, hidden way in the back who were going to Viet Nam. Served one year in Viet Nam as combat photographer with elevated duties when assigned to SEAPC. Worked as quaility control, had a Major I looked out for, access to a jeep, lab work, and photog. work. Greatest comraderie of my life post high school. Stand out moments..1. Telling a captain he couldn't have copies of a slide he gave me. It was of him and 2 mates with their feet on a pile of dead vietnamese like they were a deer prize. Asked to speak to my commander (The Major) He stood by me. 2. Being lifted into the air when our ammo dump was hit and 3. My last day there, the day I was to leave the 2nd TET offensive began. I kept telling my buds "I knew I wasn't getting out of here I Knew it"!! LMAO...Well?....I got out.
