RAY T. DELANO
Recon Sgt, FO Party, 2/9th Arty
Asg'd to "A" Co, 1/14th Inf Regt
After I returned to the States, I was assigned to Fort
Dix, NJ and went to Drill Sgt School. When it came time to re-enlist
in 1968, I told the re-enlistment NCO that the only way I would do it is
if he got me a assignment to Hawaii; somehow he came up with it.
I retired from the Army after 20+ years in 1984 as a First Sgt. My
last assignment was as the Senior Instructor/NCOIC of the Nuclear Weapons
Assembly School in Vilseck, Germany. Me and my family (wife Peggy, and three
children moved to Vilidia, GA and I started working as a route supervisor for a
large vending company. After 5 years, we moved to Morehead City, NC where
I was working as a Dispatcher and State of North Carolina
Concrete Inspector for Barrus Construction & Ready Mix Company.
After 6 years in
Update from Ray: May, 2012
I finally retired in June of 2011 from the Corps of Engineers. Peg and I moved to Myrtle Beach SC where I am golfing. I had a heart attack in Nov of 2010 and they put a pacemaker in me; I'm finally feeling real good and enjoying retirement. I'm adding a picture of the modern day me (to my Photo Album). It was taken in VA just before my retirement in 2011 at the last project site when I received a Coin from Gen Casey. if anyone is down this way and wants to hit a few feel free to e-mail me.
If anyone would like to contact me and talk about old
times my E-mail is:
