    Begging the Sargeants pardon, little question, I do not get along terribly well with technology, but so why is it every once in a 50% of the time I try to add a Create Posts to which I have pertnent questions, I hit add reply and it tells me I'm trying to edit someone elses post or my account is pending aproval? I may be humming a bunk here and there but I'm being duely respectful and I'm trying to get info to help me and my recruiter make the best most informed decision for me. I just seem to get shut down at most turns

    Hi Sparkie; nice to meet a fellow 2841. I mounted out of Pendleton with a tank platoon in ’65 and we supported amphibious assault missions. We were eventually offloaded up in Phu Bai, where I doubled up as a loader for Sergeant TJ Siva. I was later transferred to DaNang and never saw the guys again but I met up with some of the platoon last summer in Missouri, it was an amazing reunion. There’s a Viet Nam Tankers Reunion in August in Charleston SC but the guys from platoon aren’t going, so I probably won’t either.
