Info is below, should have been 3/7 in the mid 80's in Panama. Thought it was odd that he only had 6 years AD and was an officer.

Don't know him ... he was after my time. But, from the information you provided it appears that his source of commission might have been ROTC which would have resulted in most cases in a Reserve commission. When I was in ROTC in the sixties a commission would have required a defined period of service on AD, especially if the graduate was a recipient of a ROTC scholarship. Under DOPMA, he could have resigned his commission after the conclusion of any scholarship requirements, much the same as a West Point graduate.

Thoughts?

Thanks UWOA,

I was a private at the time and didn't know shit, having an O on an ODA and completing his time in less than 6 years would not seem possible during the 90's or today.

I was in A-3-7 from '85-'87 and the name kind of rings a bell, but I couldn't say for sure.
