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.

HAROLD, I was in the 3rd battalion, Company G, 1960 until they redid all the units, then my unit was I Troop, 3rd Squadron, 2ndAC in Amberg.  I went home in 60 and returned back to the same unit in 1962 till 1964 same Troop.  I spent awhile riding the border.  during my time with the Cav.   You know I was starting to study for my CW license in till I messed up my spinal cord and the nerves in my hand. really messed up.

How do you read me Harold 5 by 5 ?  Hope all the old-timers are well, thought I would stop by and say Hi.  My wife works in my Church thrift store and aways brings me an assortment of used books she thinks I might enjoy, which is of course military or history related mostly. Recently she plopped down in my bathroom library Colin Powells' book "My American Journey" (circa 1995). Fellas this is a really good read especially the first several chapters about growing up in the Bronx and his early years in the Army. Refreshing how he dealt with adversity, constructively!  If you ever get a chance check it out.
