Later transferred to 813th Med. Det. Helicopter Air Ambulance
Graduated Nursing School, transferred back to the 159th Mash as an officer.
With the 159th MASH, went to Desert Storm in support of 3rd Armor Div.
We were the forward most surgical unit in Iraq.
I left the military shortly after Clinton became President.
Three uncles were WWII vets. Two older cousins Vietnam vets.

USMC '99-'03
Sgt/E5
0311(infantry)/8152(security forces)
Served at NSB Bangor and with Kilo Co. 3/1 Horno/Pendleton. The presumptuous call it the "Thundering 3rd," those of us that lived it called it the Thundering Turd. Very proud brother of Martin Gonzalez, a real hero.

I knew Brad Kasal when he was just a 1st Sgt.

No pictures. I'm not handsome like Price.
