Great Duty Station

I arrived at Ft Monroe in March 1966. I was a PFC assigned to the 559th MP Co. Fantastic place to serve. Spent off duty at Dog Beach, NCO Club on Friday nights, dancing with those charming Virginia young ladies. Volunteer for Vietnam and got my wish. Regret not staying at Monroe for a longer period, but would not have felt completely satisfied as a Soldier, had I not did my part overseas. Hope to return some day to that beautiful Fort.
