I feel like I should be in the old soldiers home reading posts from you young guys. 12B /12C Combat Engineer / Bridge Specialist, 1976 - 1985, 1AD / 16th Engr Bn, 2AD(FWD) 17th Engr Bn and DARCOM Aberdeen Proving Grounds (Aberdeen area). Volunteered for DI school and assigned to tour in USAREC. 3yr tour involuntarily extended to 4 due to first draw down. Given a choice to stay in recruiting or be released under the 12B MOS drawn down criteria. With 13yrs already invested I decided to remain and reclassed to 00R. Spent 9yrs in L.A. and the high desert area. Reassigned to Wisconsin and then Minneapolis. Retired SFC in 1996. Favorite tours were in Germany 1977-1980 and 1982 - 1985.
Thanks to all of you young guns who followed us old soldiers and kept the faith.
