I served in the USMC from 1967-1971.
I was trained as a Field Artillery Batteryman [FABtryman).
I worked with classified documents for a while.
Studied Vietnamese before going to Vietnam.
Served as a FABtryman in Vietnam from Aug. 68 to Feb. 69 on 155mm howitzers M-109SP and 4.2 in. mortars (base-plates).
Was wounded in action on 23 February 1969.
I spent the remaining two years recovering from my wounds and shuffling papers.
Nothing to shout about really, but my time in was intense at times, boring and tedious at times, but generally, interesting and challenging.
