Truth be told, the only name I can remember from K Troop is Burns. He is to my right in the photo taken in front of the barracks. I had become friends with many troopers back then because of running the PX at Gates, but time has taken a toll on their names.
Col. Voke, If you ever have a chance, you might obtain a copy of "FORGOTTEN PEACEKEEPERS" "The story of the United states Constabulary in Germany" by JOHN CAPONE. The ISBN # 978-0-578-02800-2. A friend from the Constabulary wrote this book, I even made the acknowledgements, I did remember a little to help him, I was stationed in Sonthofen, Germany where the school was. I was there at ripe old age of 16, I had entered the Ohio National Guard at the age of 15 and used my discharge to enter the regular service, with direct assignment to the US Constabulary in Europe.
Col Voke, I was reading some of the comments. I am sure the Constabulary Assn. would love any items you might have for their Museum. I received a card yesterday from the National Commander, I was in the US Constabulary in 49 until 1951. We disband and sent to Combat units.
Col. Voke, as I remember 62-64 we had only one Mess by the main gate. The other they always told me was S4, Sqdn Hdg Was 1st floor of I Troop, I always was under the understanding. That is where you went to when you left I troop to become Border Officer. I departed in June of 64 for the states. Did you remember Lt Crittenden, where he went to. I thought he was the officer that took our group down to Bad Tolz to train with the 10th Special Forces. They made a lot of changes in Amberg, When I was there we did not have a bowling alley on the post.
I am sorry for so tardy with this Rich Griffitts fwas the K Troop CO as a 1LT. he followed CPT Daves and Rich retired as an MG, we all thought he would wear stars. His contact info is email@example.com. Cell 727 505-2016. I have enjoyed your recollections of the 3/2ACR and your time in Nurnberg. The next to the last Regt. CO that I had was Col. Frank B. Clay (Ret. as an MG) wanted me to be his Asst. S-1, I should have took him up on it. Col. Clay made the offer after I represented an M Troop E-1 who had been busted down from E-6, I prevailed against a very bright guy from Bowdoin College in Maine, in fact we had 3 Bowdoin Grads in the 3/2 ACR during my time. One of those Grads, Bill Hallaron sp? lead a patrol that was able to evade a Special Forces Team for a week or so....they never captured his patrol. Dick Rees former CPT Armor USAR
