Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

First Signal Brigade
Please be sure and watch, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this historic official United States Army video recording from the PENTAGON TELEVISION CHANNEL, which was posted at the YOU TUBE web site on Thursday 18 August 2011 by the U.S. MILITARY VIDEOS AND PHOTOS channel.

Arriving in the old Republic of Viet Nam on Friday 12 December 1969, I served in Saigon as a Field Radio Relay and Carrier Equipment Repair Specialist (MOS 31 L 20) at the Phu Lam Signal Battalion.

Later, I transferred to the 178th Maintenance Company at Dong Ha, and then I went to the 501st Signal Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division "Screaming Eagles" at Camp Eagle, near Hue and Phu Bai.

Today, I'm a disabled war veteran residing in Gulfport, Mississippi at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

All of the equipment I worked on and my Military Occupational Specialty are obsolete.

The units I served in no longer exist, having been deactivated or disbanded.

Ah, but time marches on.

"Pro Patria Vigilans"
Thank you.

1800 Beach Drive, Unit 311
