Bindlach Germany shooting

When I was in Bindlach there was a shooting of a brother that was on guard duty with an E-5. I can not remember either of the names, but I have found out that the E-5 was the one playing like John Wayne, twirling his 45, and it feel shooting his partner in the head killing him. I saw it happen, but I had remembered it wrong. I have got  that corrected, buti I still need their names and an approximate time (yr, month) that it happened. I do thank anyone that can remember more than can as it will…See More

"I do like the looks of the ring. The first one is cool, but to me it seems cluttered. The second one, to me, is better as it has the sabers on top with something on either side. Just my two cents worth. Glen "Red" Green"

"I was looking at the together we served web site and it stated that during the Cold War while I was there (75-77) that it was rated as combat and not garrison. Is this correct?"

Where did you see that on ATWS? They have their information incorrect, otherwise we would be able to join VFW.

The border wasn't a combat zone, and wasn't even classified hazardous duty although I would argue with the second part.

The invite was my pleasure. You're a brother of the trace.

Yeah, I've got PTSD and COPD, I'm ADD and OCD, and I'm Gettin' OLD. We adapt and survive, right brother? A counselor at American Lake VAH convinced me to file a PTSD claim. I'd been seeing him for awhile for depression and he clued me in on PTSD. Once I filed the claim (2002) I got it pretty quick. I just had to prove my case. Comments and photos from some members here at Dragoon Base that were in my troop, and e-mails from my former platoon leader helped immensely, but the main thing was, the final evaluator knew I was obviously screwed up.

Are you filing your claim on your own, or do you have a veteran's organization working on your behalf? I talked to the American Legion service officer one day when I was at the VA. Black lady, former sergeant major. Real pitbull of a gal. I almost broke and ran a couple times early in our talk, but when I mentioned my dad was also a retired sergeant major, I had that pitbull fightin' for me.

Soon as I got that first check I payed off my property taxes, because I was three months from loosing my house, and I joined the American Legion and 2d Cavalry Association for life.

Good to have you on the Base Glen. I was over in C Troop '75-79. Check out the "Groups" and have fun reconnecting with old buddies. Old Timers is by far the most active.

Hey Glen,

Glad to see you took me up on my offer. Kick off your boots/spurs and make yourself at home.

What month did you get to the Rock? We must have just missed each other. I was next door in C Troop (first barracks through the gate). I left in late February '75 while C Troop was at Camp Pitman.
