Joined the U.S. Army after graduating from the University of Memphis in 1966. Served in Vietnam in B Battery, 2nd Battalion, 13th Artillery, 23rd Group. My unit was a 105 howitzer battery and I served in Fire Direction Control (FDC). While in Vietnam, my unit supported the Army 25th Division, the First Division (Big Red One), the 196th Infantry (Black Horse), and Special Forces. Our area of operation was the “Iron Triangle,” a dense jungle area northwest of Saigon, very near the Cambodian border. This area had been used by the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army for many years. My unit and those listed above were heavily involved in “Operation Junction City,” a search and destroy mission. This was the largest, one of the most violent, and one of the most significant operations of the war. I received two bronze stars (meritorious service) during my tour in Vietnam.
