   As a 2/Lt, Argo was the Hq/2 81mm Mortar Platoon Leader about May 1946 at Heddernheim, Germany.

   In Korea, while a member of the 11th Airborne, he was severely wounded on 7 December 1950 and was evacuated to a field hospital.  He did not return to active duty until August 1951.
   In 1968 he was the Command Historian for General Westmorland at MACV in Saigon during the Tet Offensive. He was also involved in military history after he returned to the states and after he retired from the Army.
