Tell us a little about your cav days.
Arrived in Amberg in 1959, spent time at Camp Gates and Weiden as a radio operator and some border patrol. Can't remember OP but it was a small, tower of some medieval castle. Remember big party at Camp Gates where the whole town of Brande was invited for bar-b-q and lots of beer drinking (still have the Brande beer stein. Everything got out of hand, Headquarters found out, Co Commander got relieved and many lost their strips. Looking back it was funny as hell.
