Military Roll Call

Post by Janik » Wed Jul 11, 2018 8:02 pm

Did this on the old forum and figure we'll get it going here again.

Me, Army and National Guard, almost 15 years. Served most my time as a 12Bravo (Combat Engineer) and served a couple years as a 13Bravo (Field Artillery). I'd probably still be serving today if I didn't suffer an injury in 2003 and get medically discharged. My combat days are long since over, but I'll always be a soldier at heart.

Who else has served and what did you do?

US Merchant Marine after I got out.
higgybaby, I was on the US Tourist (civilian Victory ship) for the 68 Tet, went into Vung Tau & then up the river to the ammo dump at Cat Li (down the river from Saigon). Went back to Nam a couple more times, but no more ammo :smile: .
Did the USMM for about 10 years then went back to school & a "regular life", probably why I'm still alive, but it sure wasn't as much fun.

Yeah....I enjoyed the Merchant Marines...at least most of it. Unfortunately when the Vietnam war began to be scaled back.... near 50% of the US fleet was taken out of service, and I came ashore looking for work. I landed in Mobile in Jan 72.... been here ever since. I guess this is home now?

"Victory Ship"?...... wasn't that the first ship to get a steam turbine? I believe it was the Liberty Ships that had the 3 piston up & down reciprocating steam engines.
That was long ago......

Not sure, I was on deck, but the Victory ships were the end of WWII (44/45), replaced the Liberty. Their speed was ~17/18 knots compared to 10/11 for the Liberty. They took a lot of them from the James River boneyard for the Vietnam war, refurbished them, crewed from the unions, probably a lot of doctor/dentist/lawyer limited partnerships :smile: . I never took a trip out that we didn't break down at least once.
That indeed was long ago.

I was in the Army National Guard from 84-88. Started out as a 72E Telecommunication Center Operator. Due to personal issues and moving ended up in a Military Police unit, think it was 95B. After moving spent a lot of weekend drills and a 2 week stint at Fort McClellan to retrain, then my hitch was up soon after. At the time I didn't feel like reenlisting, looking back kind of wish I would of.

If my memory serves me?......I believe 95B is MP, and my designation was 95B-10 which was Field MP. We not only trained for police work, but also traffic control out on the trail, and of course crowd control.
