Peter ,
Thank you for sharing this ! I want to go back there before I go to Fiddlers green. Of 4 children I have my twins left at home they are 16. Once they are off to college I would like to my wife over there and kinda walk down memory lane. That place made such a impression on me. The Calvary did also . I think the Gaushaus I lived in Benk is not anymore. I kinda followed it and I think the son sold it. Maybe I am wrong. Does anyone know? Frau Shueller was really good to me. Last I heard her health was failing and I am guessing she is gone.

Again thank you for sharing !

Hey Troopers, I need a little help remembering a date from Graf. There was an Fatal accident involving a HEMTT Cargo from a Field Artillery unit and one of our Regiments M1's . Col Steele was in command at that time so it would have been between May 87 - Aug 89. The Combat Ground Safety Team at Ft Rucker is trying to locate a copy of the accident report for me. If anyone can help to narrow in on the date please email me or call. email me at:   llleary@gmail.com   or call   719-494-4344. Thank you, Lonny L. Leary

Sorry for your loss Andy. Sounds like your old man was quite a guy.

I will ask my Mom. I know in 1972 he was in the Joint Chief's Staff, SAGA. Strategic Arm's and Gaming Agency. Like 4 floor's below the Pentagon. He was a pilot in the AF flying C-124, wrote the book on C-141 and C-130's out of CCK for Vietnam '68-69

I'm real sorry to hear of your loss, Andy. My sincere condolences.

Do you know if your dad attended the Air Force 25th anniversary party in Stuttgart, Germany, 1972? I was part of the security detail as a young MP stationed in Stuttgart with the 385th MP Bn.

Just to let my fellow Trooper's know.  My Dad Lt. Col. USAFA  class of 1959 the first class. Ed H Josephson died 9/4/16.  He came to the "Rock" many times because of his work with Textron developing a weapon.  And I was there.  German guard's got to know him.  There was panic on the Rock when he first showed up, being a LTCOL  I told everyone don't worry he is my Dad.  The weapon he was working on was the WAM.  We dropped it on a company of Iraqi tank's 1 shot all tank's dead.  My Dad loved the 2d Cavalry.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
