Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
I remeber the gasthaus Gary but not the name.
Hmmm, Lam, Germany. Our WW II 2d Cav vets know that town well.
I remember once on patrol one of our check points was a gastaus that had the border running a few feet behind it. This place was near Bayer Eisenstein I think, but it was way up a steep dirt road that was difficult to traverse even in the summer. The owner had an elaborate rope and pulley system to get supplies up in the winter. After several tries on one trip in the winter, we made it up! (in jeeps) it was hilarious! Once at the top we went around back where you could see into checholslovakia for miles. At that time a chech patrol came up the path and we were face to face with them!! us on one side and them on the other. All of us panicked (including them) hid our weapons and maps etc. They did reports on us and we did reports on them. Once that was over we all shook hands, one guy gave me his belt buckle and I gave him a pack of good ole' marlboros. I remember this because it scared the crap out of me!! does anyone remember this gasthaus or the name of it? I'm pretty sure it was in the camp May sector but not positive. Gary 76-79
