E-4, Army NG. Was a 91A medic with a air medical unit, we still flew Hueys 1988-94. My unit got called up for Desert Shield, I was sitting in slot as an E-3 as company commander’s driver. I was reassigned to new unit of Huey gunships as a crew chief/door gunner. Never had a chance to go as it was basically over before I finished 67N MOS training.

I checked out when the Blackhawks started replacing the Hueys and I was in 3 near miss incidents inside a year when the Vietnam era pilots I was used to flying with started retiring and they were being replaced with fresh pilots.

SP4 USARMY was in for not quite 6 years, and was asked if I wanted to go to the promotion board at least 3 times. I declined. When I first joined I quickly realized that I didnt care for all of the back stabbing and underhanded things that I observed by others that were trying to get promoted. As I grow older I often look back and realize that I should have had a more open mind and I probably would have made a career out of it.

I think Rocky was a Bird Colonel, no Generals?

Must the military abbreviate every damn thing? This might as well be written in hieroglyphics.
