Oh shit. I just clued into Smiley. I pulled CQ with him one time and he regaled me with stories about "low-trawling through the grungle" in Panama. Then he wanted to know if I could cover down while he went home to his quarters so that he could help "trecorate d' grismas gree." After the fifth time I asked him to say again he started to get pretty pissed. I finally got that he wanted to skip out for an hour so he could help his family decorate the tree. The boy got his bell rung one too many times in the ring.

Yeah, it was too good to pass up. I think it was the really bad polyester suit he had on that just sent me over the top.

Chris, I beat myself up alot even before my stint in 2nd ACR. I guess I pissed off alotta NCO's at my Branch and they thought it would be my downfalling.
I had a L4/L5 compression fracture of my lower back, two blown knees and a well worn right hip. Early days in '77~'79 as a Airbourne Recon. I didn't show it then. Ran with the Big Dawgs.
I made it to another tour in S. Korea supportin JUSMAAG-K ROK and US SF units...Da Real Shit. Finally I got tired and settled down after I retired in '95.
Anyhow I picked a place that I loved, raised my girls and my Son.
Not too shabby for a 5'6 RedHeaded German.
