"Rebecca, your father Garry was a great armorer for HWB 1/2 ACR. I remember him so well. We lost him too soon. Hard to believe it will be 40 years next July. Garry was proud of his unit and proud of his uniform. He will always be missed."

Hey Jim, I do remember you now, it took me a bit though! I was wondering if you had other pics of your time there?

I forgot all my pics when I left, had them in a photobook and one of my roommates wound up taking them with him. Anyways, I started a group in facebook of the subpost, Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#!/groups/206543082747076/

Hope you will join, there are only a couple of us now, but I sure would like for more buddies who were there to join!

Thanks and I hope to see you on facebook

Welcome to Dragoon Base Jim. You and I arrived in the Bayreuth area at the same time. I was in C Troop in Bindlach from January 74 until February 75. Spent most of the time in the field, but may have shared a barroom brawl or two with you.
