First Lieutenant Lamar Lawson
Co B, 504th Military Police Battalion
Pleiku, Vietnam

  • Commanding Officer pinning my First Lieutenant silver bars-had received ROTC commission from University of Texas-Austin
  • Preparing to ride on mission helicopter
  • A Portrait shot--for unknown reason
    I served from June 1 of 1966 to May 13, 1967--which was Mother's Day--happy to be home
    I was an officer in a Military Police Company -- in Pleiku -- which is in central highlands -- 504th MP Bn -- Co B. 
    We had highway patrol, bridge guard, town patrol and gate guard on Camp Holloway.  Also-had several detached squads in Hue,
    Danang, Kontum, Bame-thuit and Dalot.  This allowed me to travel once a month on a pay run--took about 10 days to get around--
    flying on all kinds of aircraft--carrying the payroll (You use Military Pay Certificates--like play money--in this situation--but
    usually $10--$15,000 to start with).  When I would arrive at these remote areas--guys were happy to see the Paymaster--and made
    sure I had a good time!!

    Last 4 months was the Executive Officer for the area Provost Marshall (like the sheriff to civilians)--which was very good duty

    Looking forward to hear from others that served---compare some notes.

Bill Holtman
ET-N SS Petty Officer 2nd Class
U.S. Navy

Attended the Navy Electronics Technician school at the Great Lakes facility April 1962.

Assigned a tour of duty as an electronics technician on the USS Guardian AGR-1 (Radar Pickett Ship) stationed in Davisville Rhode Island. Spent two years "rocking & rolling" in the North Atlantic going in circles on the Pickett ship. We provided radar coverage for the East Coast while NORAD was developing new methnods to identify incoming air traffic. North Atlantic seas were too rough for me so I applied for submarine duty thinking that it would be smooth sailing "under water". Graduated from sub school in New London, Connecticut and was assigned to the USS Sea Poacher as an ETN2 (2nd Class Petty Officer) which was home ported at Kay West, Florida. I qualified for submarine duty on the sub and was designated "SS" Submarine Service (ETN2SS). The Sea Poacher was a World War II diesel boat, not a fancy nuclear.

My Duty was extended on Sea Poacher for 6 months because of the war. I was discharged in June of 1966.
