Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Does anyone know where CPT Noles is today? He was our commander in 1974-1975 with B Troop 1/2 ACR in Binlach, Germany.

GOOD RESEARCH, DAN!
Actually, the picture shown is of his son. LTC James "Jimmie" Noles commanded 1st Battalion, 37th Armor in Katterbach, Germany from 1982 - 84 and went on to command the brigade in Friedberg when he got promoted to full bird. As I recall, he was a hands-off type of commander, relying heavily on his S-3, CPT Tom "Big Bird" Goedkoop to make things happen. The battalion had a good reputation under his command and was always where it needed to be at the time it was supposed to be. Can't offer any higher praise than that!
