Remarks: I served with C/3/517 in Union Lake, MI., from Jul '68 to Aug '69 as a 16B (LCT operator). Presently, I am looking for an old site (wished it could be in MI) to house homeless veterans. I had many good memories of the people in the Nike family, but only have contact with two others with whom I served at the site. I would like to hear from any one that was on the site while I was there. I need to fill in a few gaps, in my personal fight with PTSD, which was brought on by my tour in NAM before I got to the site. I presently live about two miles from the old site, and it is a shame to see that there is NOTHING left of the launcher area. The IFC area is presently being used as a State of Michigan camp for incouragable youth. Please check out my web page @ http://www.ameritech.net/users/photog101/mike-and-wolfe.html Welcome Home to all the veterans. Webmaster's note: Michael served at C/3/517 near Commerce, MI as a LCT (Launcher Control Trailer) operator (16B) with a rank of E-5 from Jul 68 to Aug 69.
