Class of 1978
Army, 8 Years

Joined the Army in my Junior year on the Delayed Entry Program. Took the ASVAB TEST in the Westmont Library in 77 as the program gives you one year before going active. I started 7/11/78. Basic Training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. AIT at Ft. Benning, GA. Came home for one month after my training for being a top graduate from AIT, to be a Home Town Recruiter. Three units that I was assigned to in order are, 1/54th Infantry, 1st Armored Division Bamberg, West Germany 78-80. Second duty station was Ft. Lewis, WA. 3/47th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division, 80-83. Third duty station was 2/30th Infantry, 3rd Infantry Division, Schweinfurt, West Germany,83-85.Reached the rank of E6, Staff Sergeant, MOS: 11B30C2. I was injured in line of duty and was hospitalized and then Medically Discharged Honorably in 85. I broke my hip ducking for cover so as not to get shot. I landed on my LBE, ( Load Bearing Equipment ). The Army was going to operate and replace my hip but two days before being discharged from the hospital my Orthopedic Surgeon decided not to as he thought he would do more damage than good yet told me that I would have terrible pain as I got older. I respectfully told him that he was just passing the buck. I fought with both the Army and the VA to have them do the hip replacement but to no avail. It took thirty years before I was finally able to get my hip replaced. Not only did I have a break but I also had a bone fragment the size between a nickel and a dime in the socket that they made me crush by walking for a week with crutches and then I was given a cain. I got the surgery done by Kaiser Hospital as I had private medical insurance from working as a Union Carpenter. I asked me doctor for a consult to Orthopedics and two months later had my hip replacement surgery done. While serving in the Army, I was an APC Driver for the Company Commander, Infantry Squad Leader, TOW Rocket System Squad Leader, Prisoner Guard, NCOIC for the 3rd Brigade at Ft. Lewis, Special Base Gate Guard in Bamberg, Battalion PAC Worker for 3rd Battalion, at Schweinfurt, 3rd Platoon 2nd Squad APC Driver, and my secondary MOS: 64C30 which was a Truck Driver. I was made to get a license for every vehicle that we had in our TOE. This meant that I was qualified to drive every vehicle that our company used. Was the Acting Platoon Sergeant for my entire time in Basic Training and was also a Acting Squad Leader for my entire time in AIT. I was also made to attend any and all available schools while serving as well. In Basic Training on our Battalion Sports Competition Day I came in Second for doing as many pushups in one minute, being Awarded the Silver Medal, was only a difference of three pushups between first place and second place. Qualified Expert with every weapon that I was issued, M16, M2, M3, 1911 .45 pistol, Dragon Rocket System, TOW Rocket System, Grenade, M203 Grenade Launcher, M60. Graduated Top of my class in the course Small Arms For Air Defense. I was the only soldier to shoot down both flying targets with the M2 and M60.
