GARY & TERRY.jpg (26427 bytes)

I worked on the 2nd and 3rd seasons of "Tour of Duty" (think 1st season was shot in Hawaii). Shot many AK47s, M16s, been shot many times on the show, with and without squibs (blood packs), blown up with grenades and land mines, done hand to hand combats, been stabbed, drowned, and taken prisoner. 
Captured once by while I was peeing.  Had helicopters hover over me. 

Usually cold, uncomfortable, wet, or muddy in area near Magic Mountain, wearing sandals and light black pajamas.  Can remember hitting my mark one time, and special effects was supposed to blow land mine right before I hit that mark, but they blew a couple of seconds later and I felt the full force of the explosion on the side of my face.  Felt like somebody with a big heavy hand slapped me as hard as they could. 

Also remember getting hit with rifle butt, then saw white only when looking out the right side of my eye.  Opthamalogist said I had a swollen, almost detached retina.  Would lose the white and see clear again after swelling in retina went away.  I also remember when special effects didn't put enough padding on inside of squid, so when they went off, felt like firecracker blew taped to my skin.   It left nice welts on body.  ............................
