On my "first" tour of duty to Vietnam I was assigned to Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion 92nd Field Artillery, in the Central Highlands on a Firebase called, DAK TO.
Thank you He passed away in 98. He retired in 72, I was looking threw his stuff He made E-7 in 3 years then went to OCS. I know that we moved about every 9 to 12 months. And for a year we lived at the Hilton in Boston. When I asked family friends what he did they would just change the subject. When I went in the only thing he told me was not to sleep with red headed hookers in PI they could be my half sister. 26 years WOW you don't meet a lot of people that have done that much time. We had a Master Chief that was in for 45 years and I had a Sergeant Major that was in for 32. I did 8 The first 5 with the Marines then I sent me to NAS Fallon NV. 60 miles from where I grew up. I joined the Navy to get the hell out of Nevada. And after being with the Corp the Navy was not for me. I wanted to go back to FMF and I was going to be sent to China Lake CA. So I just got out. I live in Hawthorne NV now. The largest Ammo Depot in the world. We have a museum in town for all the stuff that use to be made at the base. They just got a Patton Tank it was a huge thing. I'll ask my friend there if he has any grease guns on display. I know that if you are part of a service group they will send you stuff for a display. They are always shipping out 105mm and 3in 50cal to VFWs and American Legions. They are on Facebook under Hawthorne Ordnance Museum
