I was assigned to B co. 1/9 as a rifleman. Deployed to Panama in April of 1988 with Task Force Hawk as a door gunner on a UH 60 and at the end of that deployment suffered a collapsed lung. Returned to Ft. Ord and was reassigned to HHC 1/9 after B co. cohort broke up and received a new cohort straight from basic training as it's new replacement. I was reassigned to a support plt. in our battalion headquarters co. and was made a hummer driver. Deployed 3 more times to Panama and the last time for op just cause.
