Hey SSG Viet,
doubt if you remember me, I was SP/4 Stevens back then from the A Troop mortars. I'm sure we sat together at the Famed EM Club along with SSG Kohl. I'm still in the Army nearing the end, but I'm up in Schweinfurt now. Was stationed a few years back with SSG Schoonmaker (97-00) at Ft. Lewis. Say howdy if you remember me
