I guess my handle sort of gives me away. I ran away from home and joined the Army at 17, retired in 1987 with 22 years service, had three tours in Vietnam, two of them on tanks which are much larger than our Solsices. Last tour worked as a LRRP for an all volinteer outfit. That's where I got my second Purple Heart. I knew just how to do it after my first one! I'm still active as VP of the Blackhorse Assn. (11th Armored Cavalry Regiment) 2,500 of our active duty boys are now returning to Fort Irwin, Ca. (Barstow area) from Iraq. We are planning a welcome home celerbration in March and will be feeding all of the soldiers and there families with some great Texas chow supplied my the Odessa Chuck Wagon Gang of Odessa Texas. I'm also a writer, so if you want to hear my war stories you'll have to buy my books! I just completed Cowboy Dreams which I wrote for my son Billy. my site is Jackstoddard.com if you want to visit.
