Cool Packo

Yeah, better include yourself and James in there. You know that Ft. Benning was the School For Wayward Boys. Hell, if we weren't in the Army as paratroopers we'd have been in jail. Knew some guys that did the jail thing first.

Now, I know that Andy is a nasty, ol' smelly Leg, but he's also Polish, which explains alot . He was also a cop, which means he has a streak of larceny in him, also.

Default wayward boys

Frisco-kid,
Just found out I was a wayward boy. Made five jumps in Ft. Benning during training. Then one night jump during FTX in Ft. Bragg before going to Nam. I only have six jumps to my name and was with one leg unit and two armor units.
Proud to have been a medic.

Default Just, just Awesome!!

What a story, Fred!!
wow, I'm overwhelmed--my hair stood on end also. what could TV ever come up with as impacting as that? Your war stories are as good as mine and you definitely write excellently.
I know how you feel--going through these events again with other participants is amazing, brings it all back but not in a bad way, your awestruck at what you accomplished so young--and at what you considered every day stuff

James

Happy just to be alive

Thumbs up NEWEST TOM

AIRBORNE, BRO!! I'm amazed you didn't wind-up out in the field with an Airborne unit. Every medic I knew in the 101st and 82nd was jump qualified. If they had put you in an Airborne unit you would have got the jump pay. Made the big-bucks .
Welcome Home, Tom.

P.S.
I never cared for night jumps.

After reading my above post I thought you might think I aimed it at you......nope, it's a raze against all the sky divers who think they are same same Airborne.

Airborne bro!
