The Best Cav Troop in The US Army 1 Reply

That is how we thought of ourself. I was there from Nov, 73 to Mar. 75.  Capt. Crumley was out CO and demanded the best of us. I am proud to have served under his command.

Wondering if any Iron Troopers recognize this sign. It was supposedly brought back from Iraq, but I don't know which deployment. My son got it out at Ft Lewis when he was moving a retiring Major. I'm trying to date it.

To all the guys who were in I Troop 3/2 ACR 1974-1976 we were the best, we kicked ass and took all the women. I remember Capt Smoke Crumley, SSGT  McKnight, Jimmy Range, Garth pretty boy Mckenny, Steven ODell and all the other guys who made up IRON TROOP. We ran the border, Camp May Camp Rotz and we owned the Hawaiian Bar in Amberg. Bernard Turner SFC/USA/RET

Look, do NOT pour that much, 

mebbe an ounce or so,

wait til it steams up, then,

and only then, light it off.

It will  burn only for several seconds,

then go out. It is not dangerous, or even

bad for your arteries, or anything else.

But it may be bad for them old hydraulic clutches

they used to put in Plymouth's back in the waaayy early 1960's.

Okay all, here is the plan:

1.)         get some egg nog

2.)    determine what goes "with egg-nog." Is it Rum, Brandy, Wild-Turkey?

        look, we GOTTA KNOW, WE GOTTA KNOW FOR SHO! 

3.)     alert !!   alert !!   alert !!

         just found a bottle of "Makers Mark" up there in my book case -  it's only been there mebbe 12 - 15 years; I can tell by the dust up there around the top and label. I believe it is 12 y/o ennyway - so mebbe tomorrow I (we) be drankan some 25    y/o or so whiskey.

If you hain't never had Makers Mark, or think you do not like bourbon whikkey,  you probably have never  tried Makers Mark.

What the Hey, it is the Holiday Season. Getcha Urself a nice little container of Makers Mark and give it a try! Ya really oughtta try it, 

Pour some on the turkey, just when you get it outta the oven, Then stand back, and get yurself one of those really long matches, 12" or so, and light that thang off. It will be really cool, jist don't ketch your wig afire. Please.

I was in I troop a loooonnngggg time guys - and it was NOT easy duty either. We had riots and Excedrin headaches as well.

We were "in the field" more than any other troop, and we got all the dregs for staff.

Ask ennyone who was there.

It was NOOOOOT nice!!

Comment by John G Boyd on November 28, 2013 at 1:11am

Many happy returns to all the guys still here;

Thanks for all the memories, 

REALLY!!!

Comment by John G Boyd on November 28, 2013 at 1:09am

And All,

We are all indeed, fortunate, to be alive at this late date; I served 1969 - 1972

3/2 ACR, I troop was the only Troop I ever attended, and for me, was the best and the baddest Troop in the entire 3/2 ACR.

When I was there, 1Sg. Franks was the old man . A few different dorks for captains, but that is the way that it was - for us.

Jose L. Perez

Thank you very much for your recall of what could happen when ... 

in I Troop. 

We are all very lucky to be alive still.
