Great story with a deep since of pride stired up in all vets that read this ride report. I served three tours in VN.
A Pathfinder team leader in the 1St Cav 1965-66
Company commander 1/506 101 st Airborne 1967-68
CCS 5th SFGA Launch officer 1969
This year at FT Benning, GA with three guys I served with two of them retired as CSM's and the third got after after his tour. I enlisted in 1962 and retired in 1996 as a BG.
I am the one on the right with three fingers. ( long story)
Last I was riding in NC ( tail of the dragon) and stopped to see CSM Tommy Shook. I wanted to visit him prior to his return to iraq as a security contractor. Tommy is 70 and is in his 8th year in Iraq. He is tougher than woodpecker lips. Tommy and I served in 1966 in the pathfinder team.
It seems like there are a lot of vets on this site.
Thank you for your service.
