I enlisted in the Army at the age of 19 years and before my 20th birthday found myself a well trained infantry soldier standing on the soil of a foreign land not knowing what the next 12 months would be like. I knew my ability with a rifle would hold me good if it came to a one on one with the enemy, hence the nick name I was given by my peers, ie Sniper. I got my first :22 cal rifle when I was the tender age of 6 yrs old.
I am now 58 yrs old work as a Property Manager in Hawks Bay. Have many Health problems which I recieve a Disablity Pension for .
I served with V5 coy Vietnam 70/71.
