During my training for my work position at Ft. Gordon, Georgia. we were marching back to the barracks. Suddenly our leader in charge told us to double time. We had no idea why, but as we looked to the sky there was very dark clouds coming fast over our heads. Within the next few minutes the wind started blowing extremely hard. We had to get on our bellies and crawl the last 50 yards. It was a hurricane! It was my first hurricane and it scared me senseless.
That was a very interesting and scary experience for me. There were many more scary experiences for me as my service time unfolded.
I had the privilege to meet a Vietnam veteran while shopping for groceries. I seem to have the knack to find them. This guy is a true hero. His name is Milt Hoch. He had three tours in Vietnam. He didn’t have to. He chose to.
He was in intense fighting, even face to face fighting. He was once stabbed through both legs at once with a bayonet. He was still able to kill the enemy and survive.
I have an interview with him in my upcoming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life. It is riveting.
