Recent Activity  -


When I turned 18 years old I joined the US Army July 8, 1960 in Jacksonville, FL and I was immediately sent to Ft. Jackson for Basic Training. After 8 or 9 weeks I graduated Basic and I was sent to Ft. Benning to mechanic school. Graduated sometime the middle of December, 1960. Again, they sent me to NY to board a ship for Germany where I was assigned to the 66th Trans. Co. June 1963 I left to NY.

Military Experiences

Jan 1960 - Jun 1963
Parts Specialist
As mechanics replaced defective parts from the trucks my job was to take them to the Army Ordnance to be replaced for working parts or to be fixed. I was exempted from Guard Duty because the job needed me to be on hand every day.
