trained Marines and saved lives

My Sr. DI at PI 1962 platoon 160. Served with him 3 years later as members of staff at NCO school in Calif. He brusquely gave me my discharge papers a day early and was very abrupt. 30 years later I learned I would have been extended a year the next day and shipped off to Nam. He did the same for three other guys and we never knew why. He put his own career in jeopardy for us. I never saw him unfairly discipline a recruit or fail to do the right thing. God Bless you , Sir.

Sgt. Bengen my DI, 1957

I was a 6 ft.2 inch 230 pound boot that Sgt. Bengen had taken charge of my food intake for those 12 weeks at P.I. I felt he kept me from the elephant platoon got me to graduate with a PFC.stripe at a lean 187 pounds. I'm eighty years old and I still think about him often and am sorry about his loss to the world.
