Wed 18 Dec. Jim Fortune receives 'Certificate of Training in Wheel Vehicle Mechanics.

Tue 7 Jan 1969 - Thu 20 Feb 1969 ~ What I like about Jim is his persistance to improve himself and that includes his education. He continues to train in mechanics and is transferred to Fort Sill, Oklahoma and takes a six and one-half week course in Tracked Vehicle Mechanics. He is pursuing a job as a tank mechanic while overseas.

Jim's story will continue at Fort Sill, Oklahoma while he is still in Tracked Vehicle Mechanic School.
