Yeah, it was always fun putting one over on a gullible cruit.  My favorite was telling them if they weren't carrying a German Pfening coin, they had to buy everyone in the club a beer....

Ok, guess I'll try to get something rolling in here.

Any of you Clerks out there, Supply, Personnel, Orderly room, Repair Parts ever have a newbie come in 'cause his Plt Sgt or Section leader send him on a mission to get Squelch for the Radio?  Bore Sight Crosses, Muzzle Blast, ? or any such thing??

I remember a young trooper that came into the Sqdn Maint PLL office when we were in Hoenfels one time. He was lookin' fer some "Modified High Compression Grease" Told him wait one while I go check the stock trailer. Got him a can of GAA, found an old pressure guage and a proper lookin' hose, punched holes in the can of GAA, attached the guage and hose and brought it out to him. "You were in luck kid, it was our last one" Damn if he didn't leave with a grin on his face. Would have loved to see his Sgt's face when he saw it.

David Swarts, welcome to the group.  I was the squadron awards clerk for 3/2 ACR in Amberg from 1986 - 1987.  Twenty years after you left, I was typing in a warm office as the snow fell outside.  I might be a bit biased, but the Army clerks always seemed a little above average when it came to intelligence.We seemed to know the political,as well as the historical reasons why we were serving abroad. On the same token, I did complete the 19D course at Fort Knox (picked up a secondary 71L),,and I realized that it was never easy for the guys who had to do border duty. Always Ready....

I was Troop Clerk in Headquarters Troop, 3rd Recon. Squadron, 2nd Armored Cav. in Amberg, Germany.  1966-1967.  We did a lot, for a lot of people.  Peacekeepers, gatekeepers, officer keepers, paper keepers, typewriter keepers,.....

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
