Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Reaching out to the 1992 Boeselager champions. Anyone out there?
Champion? Hardly. My participation was about 10 years before yours. We got our butts kicked annually, but man was it ever fun training & competing!
Lucky 13! Aside from being in Amberg for 5 years I was also in Bad Hersfeld for another 3, but too busy being the SQDN's BFV MG to go out for Boeselager. I first did Boeselager in Amberg back in '78-79 , but didn't know squat. I competed in the Cav Cup with the Amberg team in 83, and could only act as a trainer the following year because of bum knees. So far most of the folks in this group are from Amberg, but any/all participants are welcome. Got any pix?
Yep. I did BNCOC at Bliss in '81 and that's as close I got to Lucky 16. BH 87-90 though!! L Trp w/ Ernie Ford for 6 months, S-3 for 18 months as MG, and off to K Trp w/ Top Clark for the last year. Its all starting to fall into place. I do think I remember you. Remember Ron Cutcher from BH? He was my wingman in K Trp 3/11, but we knew each other from L Trp, 3/2. You'd probably remember my blonde X wife Sandy ( . )( . ) before you'd remember me though. I actually worked at the Green Goose for a while.
Yes, yes we were. Along with Eddie friggin Davis. Were you there with "Stickman", the PSG? Cutcher cooked the hood of his POV when he got too close to an M1. What are you doing in NC?
We called SFC Norman Stein "Stickman". Smart, drunk, and extremely skinny! The picture of me here was actually taken up by OP India somewhere.
Hi Richard, I really hate to brag, but you just found a 'real' Boeselager Champion. I was part of the 103 from the Netherlands. Whenever I think back about my time in the army, the training we did together with you guys always crosses my mind. The dancing ladies, the ride in the Bradley and Hummer. What a great time that was!
