Let's talk food, what was the best or worst instance of army chow.  I always loved the breakfasts at the border camps because the cooks liked being there (and worked hard to stay) and the omelets had 3 eggs instead of 2 like back at base.  The worst was a meal prepared at Graf.  It was so bad, guys were coming back saying don't bother,  As we got there to the mess tent, the cooks were breaking out steaks!  Seems some very high officer also thought that the previous "dish" needed to be changed...

HHT just below Mco. I see the track park where I froze my ass off my nights on guard duty. I see where I parked my jeep in the motor pool. 614th maint. was in the L troop bldg. also.

About Keneth's picture, L Troop is (was) located south (above) K Troop in the end looking over the motor pool.

I was wondering if anybody else noticed that. Unless I missed something I believe that was the only shot of any US military besides the Honor Guard during the national anthem.

I was so proud to see the 2nd Cav during the Super Bowl.  We continue to be recognized for our outstanding efforts. 
Congratulations to all of us for our service.

When I was there had 2 incidents with the polizei one time it was 3 walking down the street at like 1am said we had been busting up cars on the other side of town wasn't us but the CO had to come pick us up didn't hear any more about that.
The next time we were out in the field I had just pulled my 5 ton out on the road when a German car ran into the side of my truck they tried saying I pulled out in front of them. When the polizei got there I had the company Chaplin and Co as witnesses a long with others that saw the car come around the corner and floored it to hit the truck. At that time it happened a lot if the hit a army vehicle they could collect a lot of money.
