The Passing of Major M. Schoenbrun brings me here today.

SGT Major Mike Schoenbrun

Long before i even new i would join the Military I new this man - father of a H.S. Buddy. I asked him if he was Nam Vet because Bindlach sounded like a Nam name and he had a banner hanging on his shop wall from the 2ACR. He told me the story of the Rock.

It would only be 6 years latter while studying the Unit History that I would discover that my own ancestor Gideon Pillow was a former commander it lead it from Vera Cruz to Mexico City.

Now Mike was neither a SGT MAJOR or Major, Just a rock solid NCO named Major - who had a helluva good time running the Maint Sec out of the old Messerschmidt Ammo Magazine. Which Ironically would be my office twenty years later that I ran the ADA Section out of while cross training as a Cavalry Officer.

If anyone remembers him feel free to comment and i'll pass it along to his son.

Had a similar incidentt happen in Hq Co in1956 with a fraulein.There were 8 of us in room 7 or 8 on the first floor of Hq. Co , one night I got up to go to the john walked out to the hallway  down to the restroom and as met by a naked fraulein coming out of the rest room.  I said HI and she went on by  and she went into the room next to ours .  Several days later all hands went to the dispensary.
