"Nightmares they were - but we got pretty fast at getting them out and in again!! One NASTY piece of machinery - NOT one of our finest!! One of the "CRAP" memories I can't seem to forget is the dependability of the Sheridan Armored…"

Diferdinando while still a SP4 (RIP)

"I tried looking him up in Durango in the early 90s. Should have tried harder. I'm not that far away from there. It is a very beautiful area. Great pictures. I'll keep digging. I need to get some slides put on disk."

Hello James..  Really good to hear from you and yes.. I do remember.  I have not kept in touch with Steve Rambo.. I know he was from the Philly area.  Jimmy Mursell was a mechanic and now lives close to Pompano Beach in FL and I plan on giving him a visit later this summer.   

The Cav is having another reunion at Valley Forge next year..  the last couple of reunions were great.
