Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Harry, my dad was with a missile outfit for a year in Massachusetts 1956-57. HQ, 15th AAA Group at Ft, Banks. When he got out of the Army (briefly) in November 1957, it was at Ft. Devens, Mass.
You had me at ginger brandy, Harry. YUK!
Something happened while we were in Massachusetts and dad got out of the Army after just a year there. He was a CWO-2 and we had just returned from Germany. He bought a car and we drove back across the US. When we got back to Tacoma, he enlisted in the Army again, as a M/SGT, and took off for Ft. Ord.
Seems like my taste changed when I got to Germany. Discovered flip-tops!
