Stuck in the swampland, the German's said the flat grassy area use to be a swamp and was cleared out last year. I think this was on Reforger of 1980.

Was looking at your posted pics. I remember a couple of the guys. Not there names, but just the faces. Man, that brings back a lot more memories. Great looking motorcycle too. I rode a Harley then a Kawasaki 1200 for the 13 yrs on the police dept. Don't think I would get on another one at my age.
Good to see you here. Be loking forward to seeing more post. Take care.

Hello Richard! Good to see your smiling face, I'm sure I had some photos of you and D25 but, sadly I lost about 1/2 of all my photos in a basement flood at my old house in Baltimore back in 1995, saw a few guys in your photos that I remember also. I also drove for about 6 years and made it a point to get at least 1 load to every state ( except Alaska ) North Dakota was the last one on the list and the hardest to get too, at least for the company I was with at the time.

Hello Dan,
I remember you when I was at the ROCK.
Glad to see you here. Rick was the first to post here at D Troop. I believe he made this part of the site.
Where do you live at now? Are you retired like the rest of us ol' timers?
I'm in a little town East of Oklahoma City named Newalla. Been retired now for 2 yrs. Spent 20 yrs on the police dept. and 19 yrs at the federal courthouse.
Fishing a lot and just working around the house.
Be looking forward to reading some more post from you here.
Dan, Rick...you guys have a great Thanksgiving Day.

Hello Rick and Vearl,
I was in D troop maint. from 61-64 saw some guys I hung out with in Vearl's photos, can't recall their names at the moment but, they are the first ones on here that I know by sight. I drove the M88 most of the time, it was D 8, we had a lot of fuel line problems when we first got the M60A1's, you can see them in my photos where we had to pull the cooling fans to replace the injector lines. Dan.
