    Yes sir several of them we flew insertions and extractions at night of SF teams also supply drops we were told your on your own until you get to the river, no ID no US anything we were called the 'Shadow Company' all volunteers. WE had our own quarters, better food and other things, mostly flying at night, we were literally just left alone by brass, not even US helicopters. DD214 just says 'other'..

    I don't like to brag, but Ohio has 88 counties and I've been to most of them.

    I have moved a lot, but only in the US. I think that the furthest that I have traveled would be the trip to Hawaii that I went on with my daughter about 2 years ago. We went from Alabama to Seattle, Washington, and then on to Oahu. I had so much fun, went on the tour busses every day that we were there, and got to see a lot of the city while Robin was at work during the day.

    Per my posting "There is so much that goes on they we never hear mentioned on the media" Yet it happens almost daily. Cambodia, Laos & Viet Nam all 3 were a long way from here, yet my home for 30 months. They literally made a sales pitch in recruiting us.

    The farthest in miles and culture shock for me was when I moved from Cheyenne WY to a little village a few miles from of Gwangju South Korea, 6072 miles, in 1972.

    Not too far, around eight thousand miles or so.

    @Faye Fox

    My wife's employer had their employees attend a company conference in Hawaii, sponsored by Sharp Microwave Ovens. Spouses invited at their expense; of course I had never been outside the continental U.S., so jumped at the chance.

    Hawaii is a beautiful place, 'tis true, but I felt rather restricted, being used to wide open rural spaces. In Hawaii, one can travel a comparatively short distance in any direction and soon encounter ocean........

    Flying over the Pacific, I reflected on the great expanse of the water.......what if........
