Wayne, I graduated Radio School Aug of 57 Fort Dix NJ and went right to FT. MEADE 2nd ACR

which was Gyroing back to Germany in March or April 58.

I was with the advance party and landed in Germany 12/11/57 HQ HQ CO, MERRILL BARRACKS,  NUREMBERG.  I left 3/59

I can't afford medicines either and the VA makes me pay $24. for 90 days.  Costco has some of my scrips which I pay $13.16 dollars for 90 days.

I  was in GERMANY from 59-61 then back over 62-64 same unit.  Harold when were you there from signal school? . My medicine is all taken care by VA.  I could not afford 700. I am retired, wished my pay was more.

wAYNE, HOW ARE YOU?   Mike Rutollo I believe was at HQ in 1960.

I left 3/59

I'm having a problem getting the medicine I need for my tri glicerides. the costco pharmacy wants $700. for 90 days. and it seems to be the only one that works.

I'm mooching samples from all the DR's I go to but not enough.

HAROLD, who are you talking about, Michael.  I  know of one from back then, he and I were in old G before the changes were made.  Ned wrote our unit paper.

Harold, retired, plenty of time off, every day is a weekend. This Saturday is the only Saturday this month I don't have something planned. Pictures of the House from the movie "TOP GUN" right across from our Hotel in Oceanside.

Tower duty on the 10th and one more in Nov. and then closed for the season till may 30th 2018. Time flies when you're. Having fun.
