Class of 1978
Army, 20+ Years

I signed up for the United States Army in April 1978 prior to our graduation. I always knew a I wanted to serve my country and that's what I did right out of high school. I reported Fort Dix, NJ in September 1978 for Basic Training and also completed my Advance Individual Training there. I devoted twenty six (26) years of my life to the service of our country and went onto the active retired roster on 1 October 2004. Man what a life it was and sometimes I miss it but, I work for the Army now as a DOD Civilian and have recently help start AMVET Post 804 on Fort Lee. If you have a desire to continue to serve and do not belong to a service organization, let's talk because I am STILL SERVING. 804-926-9481
