"The Limey Bastard lives near San Francisco these days, he works for a sea food wholesaler.  Looks like fun, but I promised my wife no international tank vacations for at least the next 2 years."

"It was in M1s, I was right behind him when he hit it.  The Polizei drew a picture of a truck with an X over it on the #1 skirt.  I thought the CO (still Kruger I think) was going to have a heart attack when he saw it."

"Nope, I was born in Ca (navy brat) then moved back to Iowa.  I moved out to Co about 12 years ago.  I did have a habit of sleeping just about anywhere back then, especially after a beer or 5 or possibly a bottle of Rock and Rye."

When I got out of the Army I went from carpentry to woodworking (no real money there) and finally to jewelry.Yeah the price of silver for us has been painful it's risen %130 since last march.Do customers care?No,they only care about the price I charge for my finished pieces.Obviously I can't pass on that sort of increase,so we just keep sucking it up.Its bound to crash,when?who knows.

Thats a mouthful.I've been making jewelry now for about 22 years,it pays the bills. (I'm the only employee).Cost of silver is killing us.

I was just thinking, are you in touch with anyone else during our time at the Rock? I'd like to talk about the old days. 8 ) You can forward my info to them so they can get in touch if they like. Thanks.

I hope he does. I always thought he was a good guy.
After I left Germany I signed up in the Army Reserve as a Combat Engineer, served until 1992 and my wife said she wanted me out because of the stuff going down in the Middle East. Been slumming away if a factory other than that. Boring quiet life. Just the way I like it. 8 )
