Bernard, Thank you for your kind words. It sounds like you progressed through the Army and then onto your career with the department of State. Congrats!

I used the educational bill to attend The Ohio State University after leaving the Army. After graduation I got hired by the Department of The Interior, U.S. Geological Survey. I retired from the USGS in May, 2014. Total government service including military was 37 years.

I am married and living in Columbus, Ohio.

I will not be attending the Dragoon reunion this year, but thanks for the reminder!

How was your duty station in Italy?

Bernard, Thank you very much for the heads-up you sent a few days ago! Sorry for the delayed reply. My laptop was over heating and I waited until Microsoft replaced it with a new one.

I kind of remember you. I remember Carpenter. I am on Facebook, retired a couple of years ago and living in Columbus OH.

I was a member of the Dragoons years ago, but dropped my contact. An old army friend, Bill Rafferty sent me a small missive from the Dragoons Base a couple of days before I heard from you.

Cheers!  Rich Frehs

Bernard,

I remember the day I left Amberg too! Wish I'd hadn't. LTC. Smith offered me E-6, $12,000 and OCS, but I turned him down for a skirt back home. I could of had a hell of a career in the ARMY.

Carpenter was on my Border Team, but I apologize, I don't remember you.

Hiya Bernard
Was surprised when the computer flagged your message up! I haven't been on this site in a few years ( to my shame)
Only guy I have been in contact with from the old days was Mike Price from Michigan. I'll have to make it here more often, to keep in touch.

Bernard, it was great seeing you today after all these years brother! Hope to see you again soon and we will talk again in the next few weeks for sure. Got to hit the rack here. After the banquet a few of us hit the bar and we closed it again tonight. Damn, two nights in a row. I'm too fn old for this shit.
