Hey Lt.

I am the one and the same. It's great to hear from you and have you here on the site. I was going through some of my stuff last week and still have a letter of appreciation you wrote for me back then. When I left Amberg I ended up at Ft. Bliss for 2 years, got out in '72. I went back in the Reserve in '82, got to the rank of SFC E7 and was on the list for E8 when I got out. I now live in Washington state about 25 miles nw. of Seattle. Also got divorced after 20years, been remarried 26 years now, 6 kids altogether. Tom B. found me about 2 years ago, I've been able to connect with some of the guys back then and met a lot of great guys here. Oldtimers group is the place to be Keep in touch Lt. great to hear from you....JIM
