I am also trying to receive compensation for these same riots. I was with the 511th MP company from Ft. Dix.
My partner/wingman Terry went down with head injuries on the first day and I was beat up pretty bad...
Have you had any luck on photos, stories...etc.

I did get the news paper clippings talking about the riots thats about all, the best thing to do i get statments from ppl that know you before you went in and after talking about how you have changed the law just changed you do not have to prove what happened only that you where there if you are going for ptsd

I was with the 1/12th. Captain Peterson was our Company Commander. Dale Metzer and Nathon Brock were also in my company. Our unit was there for six weeks. The only real thing I remember was the fence being torn down and not sleeping for 3 straight days.

I was a 16 year old Cuban refugee at Fort McCoy and I although very late, I was to said I am sorry for what happen to all of you. I was a minor and came in a boat by myself. I was treated very kinds by all of the guards and civilians working in For McCoy. Although I was safe since all of the minors were separated from the adults, there were still some minor (not really minor since they lied about their age) that came from prison.
Again, I am really sorry.
