I just uploaded over 50 photos from my 1975-78 days at Amberg.  Check them out for anyone you might remember...

I'll never forget Mr. Bryant our PA in Bamberg 2/2. He wanted all his medics to learn all they could as a medic under his supervision I learned to do venal cut-downs, field surgery, field dentistry, set fractures and a boat load of stitching. We were some of the highest trained medics in the whole 2nd ACR. Thank you Mr. Bryant!

During AIT one of the medics IT, I think she had 5 thumbs on each hand too, inserted the needle in the arm, then she freaked and let go. The muscle reaction was causing the syringe to jump around. I cannot recall if it was that one another but one had a needle break off in the arm. They took some pliers, pressed on the arm where the puncture was and enough of the needle poked out to grab it with the pliers. Pretty cool.

At Pond Barracks 1965 we were giving shots, a favorite time for medics. I must say not all medics were good at this task. One medic who had five thumbs on each hand was having a pretty good day until........He puts the syringe in the bottle draws back the right amount pulls out the syringe and unknown to him the needle comes of the syringe , and stays in the bottle. So the next guy in line steps up, the medic hits him in the arm the medication what ever it was runs down his arm. Never mind the guy getting the shot, you should have seen the look on the medics face when he held up the syringe with no needle. I dont think the guys in line thought it was to funny, but all the medics did.

Yes it is the same guy. We all learned a lot from him. Taught you what you wanted to know. Did you know that he was part of Delta and SF back in the days. He always had his beret and this very special picture hanging on the wall in this office at the aid station. I also had him as an instructor down at the 188th General Dispensary on Bamberg for some advanced Paramedic classes through City Colleges of Chicago.
