"Tacoma Dave" Gettman - C Troop 1974-75 Bindlach

P.S.: Too bad you don't live closer. I have an old Iron Troop sign my son brought home from Ft. Lewis that a Major had given him after bringing it home from Iraq. I was thinking of making it into a picnic table. Already got the legs for it, just gotta put a couple coats of spar urethane on the sign, paint the legs and mount them.
