Shortly after we moved to Henderson NV in the late 1990s I wondered if I was I ever in the 9th Infantry Division. I never heard anything about it. At times I even questioned if I even went to Vietnam. This is before there was much information on the internet as well as my lack of skills.
Several weeks later I saw a 9th Division decal on the back of a car window in Henderson. I began to follow this car through town then out to the suburbs and into a subdivision. I guess I wanted to ask the diver if they were in the 9th Division, or knew someone who was.
I stopped “the chase” thinking they might think I’m nuts or call the police.
I left the fields of Vietnam the summer of 1969 and landed at The University of Texas at Austin later that summer.
