The following story is about my tour in Vietnam in 1968. It begins with a summary of my career in the United States Air Force attending Officer Candidate School, receiving a Commission which lead up to my tour in Vietnam. I then show the official military information I received when I attended the Military Assistance Advisors Training Institute in Washington, DC for a month just prior to going to Vietnam. The Institute gave us future Advisors a background of the situation in the country of Vietnam during that period of wartime. The reason I’m including it is that it was the Pentagon’s Official analysis we received prior to entering that War Zone at that particular time. Because I had been selected to be an “Advisor” I especially had to have the information provided by this four week course. What follows is the same information that we received at this course. I then I tell my story of my tour of duty in Vietnam. I decided to also include some copies of letters I sent home to my folks in the United States during my wartime tour. These letters give an insight into my view of the situation. I then tell of my first retirement from the Air Force and my stint at the FCC and later at OSHA, also my time at VOA, NTIA, JPL, and finally at NASA Headquarters where I finally retired from the government. Note: the names of those involved are not their real names. This action was taken in an effort to protect their privacy after this many years since the war ended.
