Military Experiences

1981 - 1984
Company Clerk
Company Clerk - PA ARNG Unit
Apr 1978 - Jul 1979
Back with unit I was supposed to be with. Platoon Sgt told me 1st week I was blacklisted by unit for taking job with HHC 1st Bde, would never amount to shit with unit. Set mind to do best at everything till I left and tried to do that. Top group on testing, qualifications, most things we did till I got out. Remember hanging my boots outside like everyone did last week, SFC Hightower coming back in from field, telling me he was getting a ladder and if my name was in boots, I wasn't going home. Had me sweating till freedom bird left Rein Mein next day.
Dec 1976 - Apr 1978
Brigade Reinlistment Clerk
Found out I knew how to type during in-processing, gave me non field cushy job, made coffee for the MSG's and other NCO's, typed out DD form 214's and re-enlistement paperwork. Wanted to do my real job to decide if I wanted to re-up, made a stink so they sent me to my unit I was supposed to go to. They transferred me after I complained to Bn commander I wanted to be back in his unit.
Jul 1976 - Nov 1976
