OLD SARGE IS A FAKE "COMBAT WOUNDED" VETERAN. HE HAS NO PURPLE HEART TO PROVE IT. STILL WAITING FOR THE GENERAL ORDER OR CITATION. OLD SARGE IS A WANNABE COMBAT WOUNDED VETERAN. LIED ABOUT HIS MILITARY SERVICE. LIED ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF MEDALS HE EARNED. LIED ABOUT BEING A 11B10, LIED ABOUT GETTING HIT WITH SCRAPNEL FROM A MORTOR ROUND, LIED ABOUT BEING A WAR HERO. RICH GREENE IS A FAKE WHO HAS BEEN EXPOSED. HE AND HIS PHOTO WILL BE LISTED ON NUMEROUS VIETNAM WEBPAGES AS A FAKE WANNABE. WHAT HE DID IS THE SAME AS PISSING ON THE GRAVES OF DEAD VIETNAM VETERANS WHO ARE THE REAL WAR HEROES. PASS THIS AROUND TO EVERY NEWSGROUP, EVERY FORUM, AND EVERY MILITARY MAILING LIST. WE MUST REMEMBER THE REAL HEROES AND CONDEMN THOSE WHO FAKE WAR HEO STATUS AS RICH GREENE, AKA OLD SARGE, HAS CLEARLY DONE. HE IS A FAKE AND A LIAR. HIS GAME ON THE INTERNET IS OVER.

Yeah, like those old "watch lists" they had in Nam where someone's daddy was a big shot and wasn't to be placed in harms way.
I've always wondered how many Nam vets work for Microsoft. I've been told there are a few, but that is kinda hard to believe since Microsoft recruits from Universities directly. If there are Nam vets at Microsoft, they are probably in security or some maintenance field. I applied there twice and never even got a reply, and I was qualified for the job.
BTW, someone asked what did I do in Nam. I don't see any real reason to have to answer that since it really doesn't matter what one did over there, but I'll let you know. My first six years in the Army I was a cook. I screwed up in Germany and received a General Courts Martial. Was sent to Leavenworth for nine months - registration number 41909 for verification - was released back to duty in Sep 66 and reclassified as Light Weapons Infantryman 11B10 as a Private E-2 - was a SP4 E4. When I went to Nam in 67 I was assigned to MACV Advisory Team 60 at Sadec and pulled security detail for the compound as I didn't have enough experience to be an advisor. The 9th ARVN Division was at Sadec. We pulled patrols around the perimeter. No significant action until Tet 68 when all hell broke loose. I would rather not get into that since it's a time I would rather forget. I caught shrapnel from a mortar and was med-evaced to Clark and then to Presidio of San Franciso (Letterman).
Was reclassified to a Personnel specialtiy as I could no longer function in the Infantry due to wounds. The remainder of my careerr was as a Personnel Sergeant and even pulled another Nam tour as an Advisory Team Admin NCO with MACV Advisory Teams 96, 66, and 72 in the Delta.
I met a lot of nice Vietnamese people on my second tour and hope to run into some of them if I ever go back. Both tours were in the Delta. Passed through Cam Rahn Bay twice while screwing around.
I'm not a bleeding heart type of person, but a person that feels wounds of that fiasco should be healed and not carried around as something to continually bitch about. The WWII and Korea Vets healed pretty quickly. The Nam Vets have a reputation of being real sour and rightfully so, but life is too damn short to try and fight an enemy that isn't there or is so big it cannot be defeated. I don't go around ranting about being a hero, a grunt, "doggie", etc. I have a new life and that must take precedence.
Cheers and get that Salem beer cold as I may be passing thru someday right down I-5, or who knows, maybe just a weekender to meet you someday.
