I was in HQ troop from Aug '71 - Mar '73. I spent about the 1st 9 months in the Support platoon driving a 5 ton for sergeant Henderson then I was moved into the Red Eye platoon which was my actual MOS until I left. I had a nickname of Mumbles. They were talking about the berets being issued about the time I got out but it must have been after March of '73 because I didn't get one. I think I'd like to have one but since I never wore it while on duty it wouldn't mean the same.

Thank you brother, 58 is a long time. I wish I had a two week dose of 20 y/o so I could have done that 1100 roadmarch. The cold air in your face at top my M113 ambulance was the time of of great pride. I wish I could do it all over again.

Thanks Dennis. It was a great day.

Well, not actually "on the coast". Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle are all on Puget Sound, and ships have to go up the Sound and out to the ocean through the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Yup, they ship a lot through Tacoma, too. One of the busiest ports on the west coast.
