About Me

I Served in A Company 538th Engineer Battalion from 29 April 66 to 10 April 67 according to my DA20..With 62E20 MOS which never changed even though I mainly operated a 10 ton then 40 ton crane.. The name of  the Base Camp(about 25 miles from Korat) had just changed from Camp Cobra to Camp Essayons, just prior to my arrival...I went TDY to D Company 538th Eng.Bn. the day before Thanksgiving Nov 66 & remained there in Camp Bohley (I don't think the spelling is correct) until out processing began late March 67.

When I returned to the USA I was assigned to the 522nd Engineer Company Ft.Knox Ky. 18 May 67 until I was re-assigned at my request on 21 July 67 to A Company 6th Bn. 32nd Armor Reg.also in Ft.Knox, the Armor Training School until 6 Dec 67 Seperation..

I joined this site a couple of years back, & even had photos posted by another veteran Joe Miller since I didn't know how to post photos back then..

I also joined the 538th Engineer site on 6-21-05 then run by Gary Adams.  jack

I'd like to edit the above info I posted about myself:
I went TDY to D Company 538th Eng. Bn. the day before Thanksgiving Nov 66 & remained there in Camp Bohley (the spelling of this name might NOT be correct) NOT Camp Samae San..
Sorry for the wrong name tag.. jack
