Charles it has been a while since i was on this site. I've retired from working for the city of Albuquerque at the end of January 2016. Now I am starting to check on the different sites I have joined in the past. Your question was where was I from in NM, well it was Roswell, and like you I was 17 when I joined on June 15, 1972. Went to boot in San Diego aviation training in Millington TN 8/72. Volunteered for duty with the Marines as a door gunner and shipped to Vietnam 10/72. With SOG unit  until 2/74 then on to LPH-10 USS Tripoli till May 0f 75. Did tours at Kirtland AFB 75-79 & 83-85 NAVWEPSEVLVAC, USS Ranger  79-83. Completed 13.5 years then got out.

I was right behind you. I went in June 14, 72 right after I turned 17. Went RM A school in San Diego and then 2.75 yrs in the Phillipines. Didn't make the Ranger until my last 2 yrs.

I went to Tennesse for aviation training for a month and then was shipped out to MCRD with 9 other sailors for training with the Marines. We were sent to Nam as door gunners for 16 months. I stayed undesignated airman until I went aboard the Tripoli. I then went into Ground Support (AS).
