As in the previous comment...I can't believe I got out of Parris Island 39 ....39 years ago. The 2nd Bn. foot prints are still stuck in my feet.
As a white haired, MARINE and an ex-NY cop, I treasure my youth, the things the Corps. taught me, the magnificient guys on Operation Buffalo, Belt Drive, Fortress Sentry, Beaver Trac..there were some others, but time...you know?
Took a few hits in the Nam on the D, and a worse one on the cops that cost me a career, but I am still working like a 0311.
Gotta, I got 2 in college (ouuta 7 kids) and the last one in school has announced she's gonna try her LSATS for Law School.
Anybody wanna help a Vet? Buying or selling in the Atlanta area? Gimme a shout on email@example.com.....but a kid thru school..

I was the youngest Air Force second lieutenant in Vietnam when I landed at Cam Ranh Bay AB in early December 1968 as a non-rated officer. I was assigned to the 483rd Tactical Airlift Wing as a staff supply officer in the headquarters for the first eight months of my tour. The six squadrons of the 483rd flew the deHavilland C-7 Caribou which was dedicated exclusively to the Army Special Forces.
In August 1969, I was transferred to Vung Tau AAF for the remaining four months of my tour to be the base supply and transportation officer (we were a tenant unit at the Army airfield). While there I was promoted to first lieutenant and had a real job rather than staff work. I got to work and play with the Aussies who also had a C-7 squadron at Vung Tau. My roommate in the 535th Tactical Airlift Squadron "hotel" downtown (near the Army Officers' Club) was Jon Mickley, a pilot who retired from the Air Force and later Delta Airlines. He and I are in the process of organizing a trip to Vietnam in 2008 for C-7 Caribou Association members as well as non-members who might learn about our plans.
By the way, the word has gone out for Vietnam veterans to go to Washington, DC on 17 March 07 ((two weeks from now) to protect the Vietnam Memorial from anti-war protesters who have announced a demonstration that day (to no doubt relive their glory days of anti-Vietnam protests while we served our country honorable in the "Zone").
God bless all of you who served in Nam. And God bless our great troops now serving in Iraq and Afghanistan (and elsewhere in the war on terrorism).

My father, Capt. (ret) Joe Pat Harrison passed away this weekend from neurological problems as a result of his time spent in Vietnam. All I know is that he commanded three riverboats down the river and did this two or three tours. He received many medals as a result i.e. bronze star with a V, silver star, purple heart and, it appears, the Navy Cross. If anyone out there remembers my father, who was probably a Commander at the time, please contact me. We are desperate for any military info we can get. Thank you so much and may God bless all of you who served.
