Glad to here you are doing ok. I was medically retired after Desert Storm. And sent back home. I missed 10 yrs by 3 days. 100 disabled. But I wouldn't change a thing. I keep in touch with Porter, he was in K troop with me. How's your brother doing. I always talk of amberg as the best time in the military. Over the years I've tried to find Pytco and Slossen with no luck. Stay in touch.
