Answer to Red.....of course an Army brat counts. If your mom or dad served our country you should feel very proud. You can share if you'd like.
Dennis, that is quite an impressive resume. I hope we have some Special Forces men who will weigh in for Boomer. I think we need to hear from some Marines, too. Thanks to all you guy's, you are all heroes. :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:

OK -- Dad joined Army in '42 at age 16; was a mustang; transportation MOS of some sort -- helped devise and implement the Red Ball Express. Obviously, European Theatre in WWII.

Post war was tricky since a lot of his tours of duties were for months at a time at various embassies to develop ingress/egress, supply and emergency routes. If the duty tour was more than 2 months, Dad his family travel with him although many times we never even bothered unpacking. And I really don't know his tours before I was born.

1946-47 - Nuremberg (War Tribunal)
Unknown
1949-51 - Munich
1952-53 - Ft. Monmouth, NJ
1953-55 - Embassies - France, England, Soviet Bloc, Egypt, Japan, Hong Kong
1955-56 - Fort Ord, CA, Provost Marshall
1957-58 - Fort Dix, NJ, Fort Puke, LA, Fort Riley, KS, a couple of others (16 states, 14 schools)
1958-59 - Embassies - Iran, Saudi Arabia, Panama, St. Petersburg USSR, Phillipines
1959-61 - Frankfurt am Main
1962 - Deceased (age 36, full bird)

Brother served 3 tours in 'Nam -- Da Nang; Saigon; mission never discussed but assume it was Laos (Green Beret, Ranger and went through Navy Seal program although in the Army)

In case you haven't guessed, I'm rather proud of my father and my brother. They were special men who served this coutry with pride and honor.

Thank you for letting me brag!

When were you at Clark? My Dad was stationed there from 1957-1960. I was a teenager there and met an airman there who would become my husband.
