Troopers who served in D. Company and / or on the rock from 1973-1978 I had the privilege and honor to serve with and under some of the finest officers, NCOs and troopers in my military career.

I'll dig some up, scan 'n post them. I do remember the M-24 during my time at Bindlach. The SMO and his team kept it running. I recall Trp Change of Commands that used both the Chaffee AND "Cav Trooper" Ollie Brigger (he looked great dashing delivering roses to the incoming/outgoing commander's wives) as part of the ceremony. Seems like every new commander was trying to one-up the last guy!
I was in D CO in the AVLB section from 1978-180.
I liked your photo of (Marty?)DiMezza he was a Spec 5 driver when I knew him.
Was Captain Skinner the CO while you were there?
1/2 ACR Great bunch of guys.
