Hello world!

     

This is my picture as an airborne trooper during the Vietnam era and reflect my sprit as the ultimate sentential. My accomplishments were at the top of the game. I had graduated from HS with the highest GPA in my class and Honored as the Salutatorian. The title of my address was FEEDING THE HUNGRY WORLD. This speech was in given 1963. Little did I know at the time I would become an economist.

My academic excellence was shown by an induction US Army score of 58 AFOT and physical fitness of 499 out of a possible 500 for the highest score in my graduating group. I completed Training Leadership School; understood US AR 40-501 and AR 78 UCMJ. I was a weapons expert with the 60MM recoilless rifle; 106MM recoilless rifle; 42inch Mortar; 45 Caliber Pistol; M-40 Grenade Launch and Sharpshooter with the M-14.

DUTIES and RANKS were E-1 upon induction July 24, 1964 and my highest rank was Sp4 E-4 permanent rank acquired May 20, 1966. I served as assistant gunner on the 4.2 inch Mortar at this rank. I served two tours in the Dominican Republic and escape the military struggles in the golden triangle of Vietnam. The closest I came to the jungle life was the monsoons tropical environment of Hispaniola. This was considered good duty and I served first as 118th Corp MP and the second tour as an infantry soldier in the 82 Airborne Division. I suffered from viral pneumonia and was returned to the United States October 2, 1965. I was returned as an infantry asst. gunner for a 4.2 inch mortar on the number 2 gun. In that position I was a member of HHQ 2-504 Infantry/ 82 Airborne Division of Fort Bragg, NC. My performance and conduct was always excellent/excellent through January 4, 1967.

MEDICAL INJURIES and DISABILITIES are evident from dispensary and US Army Hospital records. September 1965 through October 21, 1965 with Hospitalization in Womack Army Hospital [WAH] 10/3/65 through 10/18/65. 9/17/66 I was struck by an automobile. I received a blow to my lower torso. My blood pressure went to 185/120 Dr. Wise was my primary doctor and I suffered from high blood pressure when my pressure was normally 130/70; I suffered heart murmur; injuries to lower back; IVP show double collecting system; bruit in abdomen; complaints of pains in abdomen/groin dizziness, and fainting. Dr. Wise suggested cardio renal injury and treatments followed 7 days hosp, 30 days convalescence leave [November 18 to December 19, 1966] and repeated sick call with heat treatments, anti-hypertensive drugs, diuretics and pain killers.

Dr. Wise medical indications suggesting cardio-renal injury resulting from the car accident. I returned from convalesce leave December 19, 1966 and Dr. Wise continued to suspect cardio-renal injury and noted blood pressure of 154/112 and “Compensation Case.” He sent me for further orthopedic examination. 23 December 66 Dr. Lafallet examined my back by jumping into my arms and looking into my eyes. I was surprised by his tactics and examination. From his position in my arms he determined that I was fit for full duty and it was mandatory. He also had the nerves to say he was in my arm at the time of his examination and that all my medication should be discontinued. Capt. Maloney followed his instructions and ordered KP and other strenuous physical activities.

 The Pictures of the weapons which I was Master:

This copy my first rifle which was a very acurate weapon.  However,  my best ranking was  sharpshoter in basic training with the M-14.  It was soon replaced with the M-16 which was fully automatic and lighter.  Although I believe the M-16 was more irratic I fired expert with the m-16 which became my primary weapon.

This is a copy of the M-16 rifle.  We used 20 clip magizines and I found it a nuisance because any rapid fire caused the weapon to be ineffective because it would empty the clip in very short burst.  We begin to tape three magazines for more effective use of the weapon.

This was my first heavey weapon which I trained on in basic training as a heavey weapons specialist.  It fired fifty caliber tracer rounds to pin point the target before firing the cannon.  We fired from a position mounted on the jeep.  I used this weapon as a senntinal from a bridge position while in Dominician Republic.  I was expert with this weapon.

 

I trained on the 81mm mortar in Basic Training and was considered good scoring the second highest in my unit.  The weapon listed above use the same projectile principles and I was place on the number two gun in my Unit HQ HQ Company 2nd 504 infantry 82 airborne division Ft. Bragg.  Our gun was the most pretigeous in our battery because it was responsible for firing survey data which aligned all the guns in the battery and because it was the weapon that directed fire.  I was expert on the weapon and had the most direct hits in our battery. 

I served my units with distintction and honor.  I enlisted in the US Military and accepted the creed of the US Soldier and aggreed to face death before dishonor.

My highest rank was Sp4-E4 although my scores and training indicate that I could have qualified for greater rank and responsibility. I was not an admirals son and my family had prepared my mind to serve the country. In fact I have one brother who was drafted in the US Military and many cousins who served in the US Armed forces. They were US army, and Air force men. They went into harms way and served in Vietnam and came back to these United States with wounds and injuries which the US denied and scorned and walked away from leaving our family to shoulder the burdens of this gross neglect. I tell this story because of the prepondence of lies which lead us into illegal wars and the US Government disregard for the Veterans who have served this country. This story is based upon my personal experience and service as a grunt.

I also wore the sleeve of the US Military Police and learned many statues, Army regulations and codes and laws which I will share with you. These AR and various laws find their strength in the US Constitution and the rights of a person to protect himself. This extends from the persons to their families to communities and nations and the world community. It is not explicitly awarded to this country or this people but to us All it is not restricted protection of Christians over Muslim; White over Black or believers over non-believers in any thesis which a person wish to put forth.

My statements will begin with SAY YOU:

MY questions will begin with say what?

And my support for any position will be WHO RAH!

 

SAY YOU Greek Spartans [Alpha and Omega] and Roman Lampoons, Tartians–Titans or simple Barbarians have the rights to the killing arts look again and evaluate the power of killing and slaughter. What your bring to the world is a slaughter which no one else can possess–Say what?
YOU SAY a country ruled by laws and constitution. That your founding father was not a thief and honor rested upon his feet as it rest upon the bow of the boat that crossed the Potomac and all the proper things which he should have done but didn’t do and the covert lies an things which we learn to honor. Wake up and say something else to me—Say what?
Who are we just stupid grunts and what is this I hear about remedies–War to make peace–say what.
SAY YOU world citizens wish to comment–say what?
