Overseas tours: Sinop, Turkey 1962-63

Sinop, Turkey (again) 1967-68
Viet Nam March 1970-Sept 1971

In between those overseas assignments, I was stationed at the Army Security Agency's Training Center & School, Fort Devens, MA both as a student and as an instructor. I retired after 20 years service in May of 1981.

Would not change a second of that time for anything.
