At different times, I was a cook, a dishwasher, welder, Toyota mechanic, worked in a tire shop, sign painter, construction laborer, built fuel and hydraulic tanks for Gleaner combines, spray painted, and I probably missed something. And of course flooring installer. And I built furniture in my woodshop but not full time. Forgot that I had a book published.

I delivered furniture and set it up from 1970-1973
I was the purchasing agent for a chain of auto parts stores from 1973-1975
I pulled groceries, trained and was a forklift foreman at Vons Grocery from 1975-1985
I was an official trash collector with a badge from 1985-2009
Now I'm a couch potato, but did trim 1/4 mile of roadway hedges yesterday because it looked like crap and out $700K contracted city service has been a no-show. I can barely walk today!

lIKE THIS?

Company E, 52nd Infantry, (LRP) was a 120 man-sized long-range reconnaissance patrol unit attached to the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) in Vietnam in 1967-69. Its origin begins on January 1, 1967, as "LRRP Detachment G2," 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). It was then redesignated "Headquarters & Headquarters Company LRRP Detachment" in April 1967, and redesignated "Company E, 52nd Infantry (LRP)" on December 20, 1967.[1]

Later, when all LRRP units were folded into the US Army Rangers on February 1, 1969, Company E was redesignated, "H Company, 75th Infantry (Ranger).[1]

Like this also;

I was 'attached' to the First Infantry Division, BRO, Big Red One... as the 75th Ranger regiment Company I, Iron Rangers... served consecutively Two Years Ten months and a few days over two weeks with them (not coming back to the states at all during that time, from the end of Dec 1967 thru 1970 )

One Example: I do not believe I have ever posted this before anywhere, I would greatly prefer it goes no farther than here, please
