I was drafted out of Columbus Georgia in January of 71. Stayed in 3 years. Now live in Indianapolis, Indiana. Yes, the Indy 500 is near me as is the Brickyard 400 and the U.S. Nationals.
I was sent to Nam in July of 71 as a 67N20 (Helicopter Repairman). I was assigned to the 129th AHC (Assault Helicopter Company). Being on flight status already, I was made a door gunner on a slick. We mostly supported ROK troops, the Tiger Div. Our AO was in II Corp, mostly being between Qui Nhon to Pleiku, Bong Son and LZ English down to Tuy Hoa.
After 5 months I was transferred to a newly formed unit, the 60th AHC, near Nha Trang, supporting the ROK White Horse Div (mostly). There I was given my own ship as a crew chief. Returned in July of 72, assigned to Ft. Carson until ETS in 74. I am service connected at 0% but still fighting for PTSD rating. Dont really care about monies from the VA, but here in Indiana we get a break on land taxes for that.
After spending most of my life working construction, I now work for one of the local Lowes Home Improvement canters as the tool guy. Welcome home.
