I don't remember that particular incident, but I do remember pulling guard duty on the Golf Course on South Post in 1968 after the assassination attempt on President Park. I also remember the seizure of the USS Pueblo and the release of the crew almost a year later. When they were released, I was called into the Orderly Room where the Motor Pool Sergeant demanded my driver's license. When I surrendered it, he stamped it with the authorization to drive a 60 passenger bus. Our unit was tapped to be the contingency drivers in case the crew of the Pueblo couldn't be airlifted. Because I had never driven a bus, I was happy that we weren't used!

It was marked top secret. Back in those days every thing was top secret. But it was la list of POW that was ging to be releast this was 1972 around november I ETS Nov 20 It was a whole year and a half before they finialy did come home.
