Reading about Oliver Talbert's passing got me to thinking about a time in 1976 we where on jeep patrol together out of camp May near a Checz ski resort. Oliver could speak fluent German. There where some German family's around our Jeep. I asked Oliver what they where talking about? He told me they where wondering why Americans where there on patrol. Last night on the news I saw that a lot of armor was being deployed back to Germany then to Poland. All the armor was painted brown from the desert areas. In 1976 all our Sheridans where starting to be painted brown camo getting ready for desert warfare I assumed at the time from green camo. Looks like they will be painting them green camo again!

Wow sorry to hear about Oliver's passing. I served with him in 1976 in Sgt Bristols platoon. He was a good man. I believe he Married a girl from Amberg.

Brothers, I need some help.  Who can tell me the soldiers that were with me on Reaction Force when the M113  K10 blew up on the border.  It is of some importance so any assistance would be appreciated.
