Pulled guard duty at the air strip (always wondered why) one really cold night trying to keep warm, I used a "church key" to carve; "1002 days left" in the office stucco wall. After enlisting (what???) they sent me to Personal Spec school arriving in Amberg; January 1968. I wound up in M Troop and as a company clerk working with a guy by the name of David Fuselier from Lake Charles, Louisiana. Saw a better opportunity and moved into the Como area because the Chief at the time (Joe Hart) was short, which helped me make buck-sgt 16 months in. I enlisted because I didn't want to go to Nam and come back in a zipper bag. My plan didn't work out very well as I was levied to Nam in December '69. Footnote -- I've been back to Amberg several times over the last 45 years and managed to find my 'days left' carving on the airstrip office wall. in the late 80s. Some of my fondest memories were those two years. Anyone have a M Troop unit roster from the 68-69 era?
L Troop 80-83 . Good to hear from some old frieds. Best days of my career.

I know you won't be able to make it, but here is an invitation I just now became aware of. As you mentioned you were a Vietnam vet, Arizona State University is having a Welcome Home Ceremony for Vietnam vets the 20th of this month.
