About Irish Bob Weaver

  1. Vets & PTSD

    It didn't matter what your MOS or job was; if you were in-country, you suffer from some form of PTSD, it just may not show. When I came home from my first tour in 1966 nobody wanted to talk to me about Vietnam. I finally decided to go back. Now, I still have it on my mind. I can only sleep a couple of hours a night and am always getting up to "check the perimeter", and when I do close my eyes, I am right back in-country. People deal with it in different ways. I have learned to live with it.
  2. Still Serving

    Hello there, My name is Bob, but my friends call me, Bob. I am an old soldier. I entered the Army in 1959 and retired in 1982. I served in just about every branch of the Army there is, except the MPs. I went through basic at Fort Ord, CA and was stationed in Germany twice, and both times at the old Kaserne in Babenhausen. I was Vietnam twice. The was there in '65-'66 when I went over with the 14th Trans Bn, but transferred to the 1st Cav Div. I was there again in '68-'69 with the 241st Trans Co. I was in Korea in '78-'79 with the 1st Bn, 9th, 2nd Inf Div. I have served with Infantry, Airborne, Ranger, Transportation, Quartermaster, and Aviation units. I retired out of Fort Benning, GA in March 1982. I may be retired, but I am a soldier at heart.
