TIGER FORCE Company ’65/’66

I joined the 101st in Jan 66 and was immediately assigned to the Tiger Force. I am sure that was because I already had 3 years of jungle training in Panama from 62 thru 65. I only lasted thru Apr 66 before being wounded twice and med evaced to Okinawa and then back to the states. Following recovery, I was assigned to the 82nd and went into Military Intelligence remaining in the Army until caught up in the reduction in force in 1977. I had been appointed Warrant Officer while in MI.
