Hello all, my name is Terry and my Screen Name is MAGForce.
I have been here in the past as a guest, but never Registered.
I am a Veteran, having served in the U.S. Army from 1966 - 1969 and served in Vietnam in from 1967 (Central Highlands), until moving to
I Corp (Hue-Phu Bai) in 1968.
I served in one small Intel unit (45th MI Det) my whole military experience, beginning in Ft Bragg, first helping the 525 deploy, then moving as a unit to Vietnam and returning to Ft Bragg and assigned to the 15th for nine months awaiting discharge.
I have run into one or two people in the past that have ever heard of the unit and that was after I left and they apparently converted it to Echo Det under 1st MIBARS.
Therefore, I have no clubs to belong to, no battle streamers dating back to Custer and I have no interest in measuring anything against anyone's length or girth and don't won't to know how many silver dollars they can push off the table.
I am a stauch and unrepentant Independent and am not nearly as familiar with the "volunteer" military as I was the RA/US military and I was RA, which means I joined or "volunteered" versus got "drafted" and in those days your ASN (not SSN) designated that fact with a Regular Army (RA).
Although I wanted to serve, as everyone in my family had done...
...if the truth be known, I just wanted out of Macon, GA and couldn't wait to get in "the fight" before it was over! Probably not very smart, but we make good soldiers!
I see a lot of folks here that I know and I honestly do not remember who turned me on to the site, quite a while back... could have been Skysoldier or AbnJack or someone before that, but I do not intend to Pretend, so my role in my era is something I am not real interested in discussing.
If that is not satisfactory...
...I guess it won't be the first time I have been Banned!
Otherwise, I hope that I have satisfied all the requirements of membership and look forward to future discussions and meeting folks on the Forum.
