Actually I don't understand what you’re kvetching about.  

Comment by Harry Warner on September 15, 2019 at 4:09pm

Harold, I'm not sure what you mean by “snobs.”  

Comment by harold goldstein on September 15, 2019 at 3:47pm

I do not go on Face Time.  This is the only Social Media that I am on and I don't think of it as Social Media.  When I was in Business I used Linkedin.

Harry, I went through the Oldtimers List you provided and Sig did a few months with HQ HQ during my time.  Mike came later,1961- 1963 and Sig I think it was only temporary for you in FT Meade.

Harry, I wish more of HQ HQ would have found you.  Maybe they were snobs?

"We" meaning Oldtimers.

We lost a lot of good folk to Facebook.

Thom,

You must know Chief Crump then.

Harold,

Mike is alive and well on Facebook. I got kicked off so I can't talk to him on there anymore.

Thank you for the well-wishes on my reaching a new level of senior living.  I must say that in spite of numerous occasions of tempting the fates, I feel I have reached the appropriate plateau.  

Harold, if you didn't look past 1959 you will have missed a bunch of oldtimers.

I was stationed at 1/2 ACR at The Rock between '75 - '78. D Company platoon leader, Asst. Sub-Community Commander and ended my stint as XO in D Company.
