Michael, old age is for the birds, but I have been doing pretty well considering.  I just had my eyes checked for deteriation for diabetes, they said my eyes was good .no lost. My CO Capt. Voke I understand he left the third Squadron in Amberg  and went Regiment in late 64 and in Nurnberg in 65..

Michael, I listed Col Voke as Ltc, He retired as 06 which is Full Bird Colonel.

Sorry I need to send him an e-mail.  To see how he and the family are doing.  I need to check to see if he ever found a copy of our Troop Roster.

Hard to believe how such simple things as cherry peppers or dr. pepper could make your day so much better and back then I could travel the world with everything in a duffle bag . Now I think I need more then that for a week trip . How time changes us .

Harry, I loved the jars of cherry peppers on a cold patrol, to go with our schnitzel we bought on patrol sure would warm up the inners.

I remember guys coming in and stocking up before going out on patrol.

Butch,

I hope I didn't overcharge you.  As I recall, I didn't like to give change if it was only pennies.  Toblerone and Vienna Sausages were favorites back then.

Harry I would buy Dr.Peppers from you in cold weather and put them on the jeep floor over the transmission then put a blacket over them after 3 or 4 hours they were nice and warm to drink on a cold patrol . You had to be careful opening them .
