|Charles Hall||Army||Retired||1971||Captain||I joined the U.S. Army through ROTC – was commissioned a 2nd Lt. in 1971 and went on Active Duty in the fall of 1971All of my service was at Ft. Bliss Texas (El Paso) where I was learning how
to be an Air Defense Artillery Officer –
By the fall of 1971, the Army had enough officers (a 14,000 officer surplus)
When I joined, Vietnam was very much on my mind and like a lot of men in college at the time, I expected to be drafted, if I didn’t volunteer.
Had the Army wanted me to stay in, I would have been sent to Korea or
I am glad I volunteered. I am equally glad I didn’t have to go and get shot
Because I did join the Army – I have a special feeling for anyone who has
Our country asks a lot of young men and women and we owe them a lot.
By all means, put up a list of veterans on a PUSOG list.

|Edward James “Waffle” Rice||US Air Force||Status:||Joined:||Intelligence Officer, Foreign Area Officer (Africa)||Major||Africa||The coolest thing I did was organize a sit-down meeting between the Commander of the US operation to send the first African Union peacekeeping troops into Darfur and his counterparts in Nigeria and Rwanda. I had a tiny plane, limited fuel, and a country without diplomatic relations with the US (they just had a military coup) that I had to land in to make it from Nigeria to Rwanda. Thanks to hotmail and a dedicated former employee of the embassy, I made it happen and the peacekeepers arrived without a hitch.|
