Chief mechanic for the Battery. Days full of hard work and long nights whether it was pulling wrenches or slamming beers. Vacation sites included Graf, Hoinfields, Wildflicken or the resort town of Coburg for a fine retreat at Camp Harris. LOL That was actually the best days of my life. Those memories will forever be in my mind and heart as vivid as yesterday.
