That would probably put me in the sixth grade. My daughter is presently working with someone at the high school who was my sixth grade teacher. She was the only teacher I ever got a paddling from. We had several different teachers that year in school and one other teacher stands out because of one very naughty boy in the class (not me). This kid was making noises like a chicken, baaaach, baaaach, baaaach..etcÖ. The teacher eventually called him to the front of the class and paddled him. When he got it, he made a very loud chicken noise that sounded something like baaaaach, baaaaaaach, baaaaach I believe there was quite an eruption of laughter after that. Man thatís been a long time ago!

Half way through my 3 year enlistment in the Army stationed in Heidelberg Germany waiting for the other half of the enlistment to end so I could get home to my

Working for General Motors in 1967, quit that, not much for final assembly. In fact I hated it. 1968 hired out on railroad after that enlisted in Marines went to VietNam. I see I'm still a youngin here, and I ain't complaining about that either

That puts me ending 10th and starting 11th grade (spring -- fall). Also working on my Private Pilots license and working for Phillips 66 gas station for 50 cents per hour. Of course, at that same time gas was .18 per gallon and my little Yamaha 125 got a whole bunch better MPG than my Dodge!!

I ended up 30 miles upstream in the Delta on a converted LST, the USS Colleton. One of the specialized Brown water Navy boats. I had a machine shop on board, fixed anything the Machinist mates didn't. Everything from the big dish machine to the extractors in the laundry, I made all the parts that weren't on board.
What did you Nam guys do and where did you end up?

Dennis, my insignia is a Micrometer, I was a Machine Repairman. I made 2nd class at the Sub Base in New London Conn. Then shipped out to Nam.
I'm glad we are all home, so many lost their lives there. I think about them and what they might have become and contributed to society often.
I wish all our service people could come home from the dangerous places they are fighting in now.

Lets see I graduated from 8th Grad - Pollock Pines Elementary School, CA the 2nd week of June (the was still 3 feet of snow on the ground). My Dad bought a new 67 VW Beetle (I think it was around $1,700). Two weeks after he got the car he got laid off from Aerojet, and we moved to Sandy, UT (he got job with Lockheed).

Was a fun topic Jim, tanks for starting it.

Ozz .....was in the CAP Marines in Dong Ha, north of the river for the better part of my tour which was only from April to Oct in 1968. Wounded then spent the next 2 mos in Guam Naval Hospital, then shipped from there to Great lakes Naval Hospital where I spent another 4 mos in the hospital. I am not complaining at all though, I made it home, live a pretty normal life. Thats a whole lot better than the alternative a lot of my comrades was dealt. Over 50,000 did not make it home to there families and friends, and I can say that is the saddest thing there is to me.

Semper Fi to all my Marine comrades, and welcome home to all military people protecting me and letting me enjoy my life. You are in my prayers.

OK I got off on a tangent so to speak, but its one thing that I am very vocal about. Never forget them, and remember never forget our MIA's and POW's.

Thank you.
Dave
