The Best Cav Troop in The US Army

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.

Hey, guys did I tell you about the Police Call Goat that I troop used, or had to police Amberg? I do not know where this goat came from but we used it when we had to pick up all the papers, cigarette buts and other trash. He loved the filter- tipped cigarettes butts. He was a vacuum cleaner (see picture, I am the guy with glasses). Instead of spending a couple of hours in police call, we spend one goat-hour.
