PI and Nam

Only 1 person per platoon received dress blues at graduation, and he also got 1 stripe.  Now a days I see where several men per platoon get 1 stripe.  Left PI 8/'64 for Camp Gieger for 6 weeks the 7 days leave and off the Hawaii supposedly 2 year stay with I-3-12.  Only got to stay 5 mos because everything was pulled out and we landed in Nam 8Mar'65.  Never got to see any shows or movies up north in Phu Bai, Hue or Quang Tri.  Made it back to the world after 18 mos.
