mei was born on july 6, 1947 in Bowie, Arizona. joined the army on August 6 1964, shortly after leaving high school. deployed to South Vietnam in September 1966. returned to the U.S. in 1967 and began training in the Special Forces (Green Berets) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In late 1969, i was re-deployed to Vietnam. in November 1971, i was captured by North Vietnamese forces near the Chinese-Vietnamese border. i escaped captivity in May 1972, but was then re-deployed. i was discharged on September 17, 1974. on my return to the U.S., i discovered that many civilians hated returning soldiers from Vietnam. my experiences in Vietnam resulted in an extreme case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. these days i am taking it easy. still not totally adjusted to civilian life, i have found my peace in monastries in thailand.

i have moved on from my past life. i am a tech blogger now. i heard its the easiest way to make money these days. besides with age m not getting any better at stick fighting…
