Sarge Lintecum

Sarge did three tours of duty in Vietnam, 1966-'67-'68. His first tour was eleven months in the jungle with the 101st Airborne Paratroopers as a combat infantryman. During that time he advanced to Squad Leader. Sarge came down with malaria three times, jungle-rot, immersion-foot, two varieties of internal parasites, a shrapnel wound in his leg, exposure to Agent Orange, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which Sarge says is the "Vietnam Blues".

Sarge's blues music, spoken word, and jazz recording, "Vietnam Blues-Combat Tested Blues . . . For Peace", (on CD, cassette and DVD), on which Sarge sings, plays harmonica, and wrote the songs and poems has received five Honorable Mention Certificates in Billboard Magazine's National Song Contest.

Sarge has a powerful voice and stage presence. He performs at concerts, blues clubs and veterans' events around the nation. He is a fine harmonica player, endorsed and sponsered by the Lee Oskar Harmonica Company. Lee Oskar, of WAR fame, and owner of the Lee Oskar Harmonica Company, has come to Phoenix, Arizona, on five occasions to do benefit concerts that Sarge and his wife and business partner, Leslie Nan Lintecum, conceived of and organized.
