I'm still trying to locate those serving 1/2 ACR at Christensen Barracks in Binlach, Germany between 1968 - 1973.  Thanks for your help. I served as HQ Troop XO, S-1 and S-3 staff during my June 1969 - June 1972 tour. Cpt. Steve Oliver

There was an old cement foundation for a shed that had burnt down right next to the parking lot by HHT barracks. One Friday afternoon, before catching the  train to Nurnberg, a bunch of guys picked up some officer's car and carried to the middle of the foundation. It couldn't be driven out, so it sat there until Monday morning formation when everybody had to move it to the parking lot.

I remember an incident back when I was there...between 76 and 79...a sheridan was backing off the firing line and one was approaching and there was an accidental firing...it hit the sheridan coming off I think and killed several in the tank...anyone remember that?

looks like the old storage shed we had back in '76 in our motor pool...across the street from the PX

Guess I just missed you, Doc Dodge. I was at Camp Pitman (with C Troop) when you got to the Rock in January and left there for home in February, so though our times there slightly overlapped, we never crossed paths.
