B Company 1970 – 1971
Served with Bravo Company 2nd platoon, 2nd squad of the No Slack battalion Sep 25th 1970-Sep 26th 1971. Arrived a PFC left a Sgt, spent 22 more years and retired a Sergeant Major. Took that long to get a win – Desert Storm.
I asked for the 101st when I arrived at the replacement company in Ben Hoa. My drill sergeant from infantry AIT recommended it and said we could ask for a unit when we got to Vietnam. He did a lot in preparing us to go and thus earned my respect. Besides that screaming eagle patch looked real nice on his uniform, along with the CIB.
