"Col. Seigle was RCO and received authorization in 1973 to wear the beret, initially the problem was finding enough of them - I remember going to the Bundewehr for help initially until we could find a proper outfitter. I was a Captain in the S3 shop…"

Bob,

This is Steve Oliver from 1/2 ACR.  I served from June 1969 thru June 1972...HQT XO (and all the jobs that went with that position, moving to A troop with Ralph Barber as troop commander for about 3 months and then to Adjutant for LT Col George Rostine for 18 months and closed out my tour in S3 with Cpt John Roseburg.

I seem to recall having a party at your apartment that included Black Russian drinks.  I cannot remember all in attendance but, Tom Kreger, Bill Rounds come to mind.

Sue & I also hosted a couple Christmas parties at our APT in Fursetz.  

Let me know if my memory is correct.
