It would have been 2 tours at CCK. The CCK tour was 15 months. I was only a few months from getting out after the second COT and it was pointless to come back to some stateside base for a couple of months. They would have just TDYed me back in because I was already qualified. There was no permanent personnel at 834th Air Division. Everybody was TDY so nobody was counted in the American Troops in Vietnam. The 834th was the Air Division that was not there.
