    Richard Harvey got a reaction from Courage777 for a status update, Thanks for this opportunity. I'm a 69 year old, retired from the Army with 33.5 years   
    Thanks for this opportunity.  I'm a 69 year old, retired from the Army with 33.5 years; then continued civil service until D-Day 2016 to honor my Uncle who was Omaha Beach and carried the Invasion plans for Ike to be successful @ St. Lo.  I began military service in '68 in the info gathering community experiencing 2 trips to Vietnam, stayed in the Reserves 12th SF Group while going to college, then realized I missed working with someawsome folks and went back to 7th SF Grp @ Ft. Bragg, NC.  Later worked as an instructor @ the SF Medical Training Branch, and then went to PA school and went to various places in SE Asia, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.  Began service on the civilian side in Germany, then Ortho at Denver, VA then @ Walter Reed's Ortho Trauma ward 57, then to Clinic at Fort Myer, VA... best thing there were the Caisson Platoon guys who worked in Levi's/cared for the horses and performed silent service for those who've passed.  Went back to Walter Reed and did Trauma Surgery on our Iraq and Afghan vets... Many were stable due to the efforts overseas. Finished by doing Ortho at Houston VA, and Family Clinic, Fort Hood.  Presently finishing rehab following a drinking driver taking me out in Jan 2017... Slow but it's coming along.  Again thanks. RLH
