We were to be paid R10. a day danger pay, by AMERICA for our time spent in ANGOLA .I was at the Battle of Bridge 14.Have never seen a cent of that money.How do I go about claiming that money from AMERICA. We had to sign certain papers. I was only 18 at the time, wanted to forget the whole thing but the fact is I was in the SOUTH AFRICAN DEFENCE FORCE at the time doing my national service. We were asked to volunteer to go into ANGOLA.We were giving foreign uniforms.I was flown about a 1000 kilometers into ANGOLA.There were about ten of us in the plane,we landed in CELA.From there the story starts
