I don't see many posts from infantry, are they all hiding? Ha! I landed in country in 03-1969, I was glad cause it had to be better than Vietnam. I don't know why but I don't remember a lot of specifics, I guess the years took its toll on my memory, i really have not talked about it till I applied for compensation from agent orange exposure. I have prostrate cancer as well as peripheral neuropathy, both of which are admittedly caused from agent orange exposure. I thought the lack of leaves on the trees was the cold weather, I didn't realize really why until very recently.
We were located north of Camp Casey digging holes in the rocks so that engineering company could poor a concrete bunker. I do not know where I was but I would sure like to know, we went to a village off time but I cant tell you the name of it and i sure would like to know, Ha! Not TDC either cause than was Camp Casey and I know I was north of there several miles. I would like to meet "my girl" again, I know a 65 year old Korean woman would not do my memories justice, I think I need to leave that memory stay. While at I was at Imjin Scout Training she was at the gate every day for 4 weeks until I rolled back in for a week end pass just to go back the following week, she was protecting her investment.
I volunteered for Imjin Scout Training, didn't take them long to put me there for 4 weeks of infantry training, like that was something new. I would love to meet a guy with the last name of Kuzan, I know he has not forgotten me. We spent 4 weeks of fun in the DMZ together, never forget it.
Feel free to comment, it make the soul feel better.
