US Army December 1967 to July 1969
I was born and raised in Santa Maria. High school and two years at Allen Hancock College. I'm married with four sons and one daughter. Nine grandchildren and one great granddaughter. I was drafted in 1967 and came home in 1969. My hobbies are hot rods and 50's music. I recently retired so that I could spend more time with my Vietnam vet brothers. Vietnam was an experience that probably only another Vietnam vet relates to. It was not a good time, but it's getting better. When I go somewhere and I run into another vet, we can look at each other and know that we share a common bond without ever saying a word. It's been a long time coming, but it's getting there. God bless our young troops and hope they have a good home coming.
