Military Experiences

Jul 1982 - Oct 1986
Squad Leader
Regular squad leader duties, major accomplishments were completing scout swimmer school, Learning how to call in ICBM's, completion of pre-MART training. I completed all the physical tests but was not selected to go recon. Must've been the psych test that dropped me...LOL, or hmmm, maybe my civilian run ins with the police? They never told me why I didn't get selected.
Jun 1978 - Jul 1982
Gunner on the 40MM self propelled anti-aircraft gun. Most exciting thing that happened was being called to help restore order in New Mexico penitentiary during a huge riot in Santa Fe in 1980.
