Tell us a little about your cav days.
I retired from the U.S. Army 31 Dec. 1980 and from the Dept. of the Army on 7 Dec 2005 with over 44 years before retiring on 7 Jan 2005. I can rember faces well, but with all the fine Cav Soldiers & Civilians I served with it's difficult trying to point out something specific.
Tell us a little about you now.
My wife 0f 46 years Trudy and I live about 5 min. from Bayreuth in our home we bought 30 years ago. We have 5 childern, 7 grand-childern and 3 great-grand childern.
Phone number (Optional).
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.

Too many years have passed, TOP. The day we met you had returned from the border (we had Pitman & Gates). I reported to you and you said "Corporal Crockett, I'll bet your name is Davy?" That name stuck for the next 17+ years! I remember Col. E. Robert White, Col. Densberger, COL. W.D. Stanley, LTG Lute, GEN Dempsey. Papa John, Mike Renshaw, and lots of others from Jul7 77 to July 80. Good times, never forgotten! "Remember your regiment and follow your officers. Toujours Pret!"
CTRP 3RD PLT 1975 I remember a top Sargent asking the morning formation who wants to be their own boss! so I raised my hand, so this sargent tells me you are now the boss of the lawnmower.HAHAHAHA ON ME.HOW YOU BEEN TOP!
Bob, It is really great to hear from you, my assignment to the Red Legs was different and enjoyable. It was really a hard blow to me to hear that Ben passed away. He was one of my best fiends, we were neighbors in the in the Hugo Rudel Strasse in Bayreuth; we spent many long hours together. We rebuilt my old VW Beetle in my basement and changed it from 6 to 12 volts. His wife Ursula and my wife Trudy were really close. He came up from Bamberg for my retirement ceremony, Gen. (Ret) Bill Weber told awhile back he was teaching school, it was his life long dream to work with childern. Stay in touch. Top
You probably don't remember me as one of those young lieutenants down in HOW Battery but I remember you as one of those great cavalry NCOs. Bennie Causey was my First Sergeant for a while and I remember how much he took care of the young officers, taught them how to be better, and never hesitated to politely correct us when necessary. :) I never got to say thanks after all these years and always thought that I would get to see him some day and buy him a beer. Well, tonight I looked him up on the internet and see that he passed away recently. I'll never forget that great gentleman, and how he could do a million leg lifts!!!

Gad to hear from you. Sorry to hear about COL Dinsburger I realy enjoyed being his driver. As for Capt. Teter he was a Lt. Col stationed at Ft. Knox at the time. I lost contact with him myself after that. Looking at some of the profiles of peope I knew, it surprised me that some of them went on and stayed in miitary. As for myself I came back stateside and got married (31 years) am now a union sheetmetal worker working for CSX Railroad and hope to retire in about 4 years. I have one daughter and son in law and two grandchildren Mathew 2 1/2 years old and Abigail 4 months Hope to hear from you again. good chatting with you
