Get some Cascade dishwashing detergent for a dishwasher, not the sink. Drain coolant from the system. Refill with Cascade and warm water, run the engine to cycle everything throw the cooling system. Make sure to get the engine to operating temp so the thermostat opens. Drain and repeat as needed to remove all the oil.
Give it a final flush with straight water. Then refill with coolant.

The Cascade works really good to cut the oil off the surfaces and will not foam up. We do this regularly on earthmoving equipment at work.

Thank you sir for your service to our great nation.

I have seen in go both ways at work. Guys hired on without any tech school and guys hired on with diplomas. Your military experience would be a big help here. We have a history of hireing ex-military. I hired on 11 years ago without any prior experiance. It's all about having the right attitude/morals.
