My father was in Signal Officer Basic Course, Ft Gordon June through August 1969 but came back to Ann Arbor, Michigan to see my birth July 4th 1969. Wish I could  see a class picture photo from the Signal Officer Basic Course, Ft Gordon June through August 1969.


I did not know any of my father's work from 1969-1979.  And really didn't learn anything of it until mid to late 1980's.  But did find his old Vietnam Era OG-107 Uniforms in which I had found in box's and would wear the shirts when hiking.
