Dave, You have a photo of a P-51D Mustang (Miss Fit) on your site I want to include on my site of active P-51D mustangs. Even though the paint scheme has changed, the plane still operates in flying condition.What I need is your name in order to give you photo credit.
Served 11 months 21 days and 31 minutes as a RTO with HHC,Alpha and Delta Companies. Stumbled onto your site while a flashback moment.
Interesting reading. I served from 1968 to 1970. In Nam I was stationed in the Northern I Corps. 3rd Sqdn 5th Cavalry, 9th Infantry opconned to both the 101st Airborne and the 5th Mech (not at the same time). My Unit consisted of tanks and PC's. My Nam tour was Jan '69 to Jan'70. I was one of the lucky draftees who experienced the early out program without extending. I went to radio school for AIT. Little did I realize that I would probably end up with a PRC-25 on my back. When I figured this out, I was able to advance to radio teletype school at Ft. Gordon in Georgia. I almost volunteered for the shake'n'bake program, but held firm and went to Nam like a good soldier. Bottom line, when I derosed, I had served 1 year, seven months and two days. Bascially, I had 148 days left when I touched home in the world and got my waling papers. Unfortunately, it was strange times in the early seventies and I couldn't relate to the protesters or the luv-ins. Got my head together and graduated from CSUF. Considered choosing Cal Poly Pomona, but they required an extra course for the BS vs the BA at Fullerton, so I opted for Fullerton. Anyway, it's been 31 years, next month. An awful long time for dredging up old memories. Thanks for the trip down memory lane anyway.
