Welcome to Dragoon Base, David. Make yourself at home. If you have any problems or questions, give me a holler.

Sounds like we rolled in some of the same mud and dust. I was in C Troop 1974-75. When I first arrived at the Rock C Troop was at the border, so off to Camp Gates I go for a few weeks. When I left to ETS I left directly from Camp Pitman in Weiden where I spent most of the time. Rarely saw the Rock.
