Dec 1968 - 2nd Platoon Ldr - Border tour and testing 20mm for M114's at Graf - Assigned as S-4 Officer (as 2LT) by LTC Osborn and was way over my head - Very fortunate to have some great NCO's that got me through. May 1970 replaced by CPT Mick Mason who became a client 20+ years later. The Cav was great - lived on the economy with some wonderful Germans.
Tell us a little about you now.
Retired now - 10 years with UPS - 8 years with Singer-Link selling helicopter simulators to the Army - 22 years as a headhunter (my own company) - divorced and remarried 22 years. Spend my time training retrievers, bird hunting and shooting skeet - serve on a couple of non-profit boards.
