"BlueGhost 26" – 1969-1970

Page 2



I joined the US Army Reserves while in college Nov. 1965; dropped out of college to join active Army Nov 1966; OSC 1967; flight school 1968, then Vietnam 1969, which brought me to F Troop 8th Cavalry.

I spent my entire tour flying the AH-1G, I enjoyed it, guess I was even good at it. In my bio for the book The History of the Distinguished Flying Cross, I even remember saying that “I’d have done it for free”.

I returned to the states in March 1970 and served as a tactics IP and Operations Officer until Feb 29, 1972, when I resigned.

For the past 27 years I’ve been in the medical/surgical industry. In April 1992, I started my own company, WIGGINS MEDICAL. We sell & distribute surgical instruments for brain & spine surgery. I live inPanama City Beach, FL., ‘cause I prefer being near the beach. My only child, a son works for the US Senate.
