I hope that this is the correct forum. If it isn't, I'm sure that someone will let me know. I had an uncle who died 15 years ago from cancer. We knew that he'd served in the Army, but no one but his wife knew about the extent. He confided in my father, less than an hour before his (my uncle's) death, that he'd been in some missions which required high-security clearance, somewhere in Southeast Asia. We know that he went to jump school and that he served from 64-68. He told Dad that this was a joint effort with the CIA, and that he'd been responsible for killing "many people". My question is....if anyone knows: Why did he keep it a secret for nearly 30 years? What the heck was he involved with? And why can I find NO record of his military service, even though I've seen multiple photos of him in Army Dress? MACV-SOG? Is that too sensitive a subject still? I would just like to know. Any takers?
