Other non RVAH/VAH commands
1/185th Amor Battallion, California Army National Guard.
After getting out of the Nav; I went to work for the Veterans Administration as a Biomedical Engineering Tech. (Electronics tech. who repairs medical equipment) Been with the VA since then and am fixing to retire in about a year. Did join the California Army National Guard to take advantage of the retirement...didn't count on going to Iraq, though. Was told the Guard never goes anywhere or gets deployed...ha, ha. Retired from the Guard in 2008. Was with the 1/185th Armor Battalion as a tank commander...what a trip! Certainly enjoyed capping rounds down range but, unfortunately, when we deployed the Army decided they needed ground pounders more then tankers. I spent my tour in a Hummvee as QRF or performing perimeter security. Well, it was all an experience I'll never forget, much like my first cruise on the Connie in 70 with H-11.
