Recent Activity  -


Grew up in Western NY state. In the Army 2 weeks after 17th birthday, brand new HS diploma in hand. Had spent 2 summers with relatives in Aberdeen, MD, ('66 & '67) got to know both enlisted and officers there, that was my inspiration. Knew in BCT that come hell or high water I was going to do 20. Started out wrenching on helicopters, switched after Vietnam to medical field.

Military Experiences

Jun 1987 - Jul 1988
30+ years retired. After BCT at Jackson, came Rucker, APG, RVN, Hood, S. Korea, Hood, W.Germany, and finally Gordon. After RVN, every assignment -until my final assignment - was in a mental health - substance abuse counseling center. I retired from EAMC as NCOIC of Outpatient Psychiatry and Psychology Services. *added in 2023: I don't know just when the MOS numbers changed. My MOS was 91G3z when I retired. (z= alco/drug)
