Ed Combs Class of 1967
Army, 3 Years
A dear friend and I Enlisted together under the "buddy" program. We were supposed to be together for at least a year! He went to Ft. Meade Maryland, I went to the next closest base....Ft. Ord CALFORNIA.. Now that was close! I volunteered for Vietnam every six weeks for over a year and was totally ignored. Doug, my buddy stayed at Ft. Meade his entire three years! Absolutely unheard of, especially in the middle of the Viet Nam conflict. After 12 to 18 months of turning in requests for APO 90638- Viet Nam, I finally gave up! Yep....less than a month later I was assigned to the 101st Abn., APO 90638! Saigon. Within 7 days of being "in country" I was shipped NORTH to the 101st HQ Co., Hue, Viet Nam. Three days later I once again was told I was going NORTH to a small out post called LZ Sally. How much NORTH would I have to go?! The damned country was only 350 miles long! Many events later The Army offered me an EARLY 'OUT' if I would extend my tour in Viet Nam by 6 months, they would then drop the rest of my three year enlistment letting me out a free man! A lot of thought, serious thought went into this....I took them up on their offer. Three days later all hell broke loose! Called my newest best buddy who was in the actual 101st HQ and asked him to find my extension agreement and BURN IT! He DID.... Instead of the one year, 365 day commitment for Viet Nam I did one year and three days. Absolutely the longest three days of my life! Thanks "Buddy" I hope life has treated you well-I will never forget. Ed (Sgt. Combs)
