Lots of good times, & lots of shitty ones too, Remember Novak's black room in 3rd plt, some good times had in downtown Bamberg , & on the Border at Hof, Laying in the snow for hours on GSR guard duty , lol
I was a medic 84-85.Went to the border with H trp.But was also with E trp.during some of those alerts that we thought would only last the day,but turned into a week in the woods living out of my m113a2/ambulance.Crazy times
Back in 2002,I ran into Novak in this really small middle of nowhere town in South Dakota. He was doing ok. Had just bought a small piece of land and put up a modular home there.
I went out west to Montana and South Dakota for a couple of years back in 2002 to do some honest to God cowboyin', and would have never in a million years have expected to see anyone from the 2d ACR, much less someone from 3d Herd, E 2/2 ACR!
It was pretty cool to run into Novak....Winner, South Dakota is the name of the town.
