SilverEagle thank for getting a thread like this started.  And many thanks to your Grandfather, your Father and brother for their service.

So, how about a roll call for all of those North Texas fans who served our country.   Overseas, stateside, Reserves, battle hardened vets, it doesn't matter.  Thanks for you service!

Viet Nam 1970 - 1971, 13-1/2 month tour of duty.

1st Field Force Viet Nam, 105 mm Artillery Battery

 

 

Phil, surely you have a photo of you during your military service.

Silver, I've never wanted to post photos of myself on the internet.  But for you, I'll make an exception.   BTW, I was in Nam 9 months after graduating from North Texas.

Don't take this badly, but unless someone knew you well, I seriously doubt that anyone would recognize this as you. I'll try and post my first NT id photo. You won't recognize it either. Nine months after graduating? Were you in the ROTC? Is that ear protectors perched on top of your head?

BTW, you look like a young man who is on the adventure of his life.

No ROTC.  Drafted 3 months after graduation, basic training, Xmas, AIT training, 30 day leave, off to war in May, 1970.  Life was great!  Not!

No earmuffs, just my head.  That photo was taken in April, 1971, LZ Lonely.  Oh, notice my jungle camos?  Mean Green!!!!!!

Thanks Bill for starting this salute to our the Veterans in our midst. Friend of mine was wearing a Gulf War Veteran hat at homecoming. At least 10 people came up to offer thanks. Very humbling.

And if you see one on the street today or any other day, thank him. And if his lady is with him, thank her.
