Well I hope I'm right. Do you remember SPC/4 Freddie Sloce from Fort Carson Colorado. Stationed in the " Old Mule Barn" section at Ft. Carson. We left for Germany together but went to different troops. I went to K Troop 3/2 ACR in Amberg Germany. !974 to 1977.
I just happened to come across this web site and it brought a lot of names out of deep recall - Ranger Jim, aka CPT Noles, Jackie C Packer, SFC Diamond, Jody Booker, Ed Goins, Mark DeRuyter, David Goodreaux, Rusty Felker, Rick Bulak, Mike Szot, Pat Jones, Tony Hinton, Jimmy Peters, Rusty Eichler, Frank "Blackatya" Parker, Coward, Pettit, Laroche, Stanford ......and I'm sure I'll come up with some more, in time. Great pics, I have some of the same folks, but don't have them digitized to post at this time.
Paul Parker - 3rd Plt "BlackatYa" and 2nd Plt "Bucket O' Bolts"
Charles, where did you find the Troop picture from 75? Even though I left in june 74, I still recognize a few guys. Namely, Dave McBee ( was my driver on 17 ), Paul Emond ( was my loader on 17), Hall, Foster, Doggett, Robin Johnson and I think I remember Ponce as well. If you find the picture from 73, I am in that one.
Charles, I just finished looking at your photos. They brought back some great memories. Some of them are very similar to some on my page. Its as if we stood in the same spot to shoot them, only years apart. Mike
Toujours Pret Charles,

And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures (pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about DragoonBase.
Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country.

We had a SFC Webb next door in C Troop the same time you were in B Troop. Here is a poor picture of him on the far right with his hands behind him. We called him Lyrch because he was tall and talked slow like Lyrch on The Addams Family.
