Hello Sir, I was a SGT in your platoon when you first arrived in B Trp when SFC Ewing was our PSG. We met again at Fort Knox, when I was there on DS duty. I retired in 1998 as a 1SG, from, of all places, 2/2 ACR where I was 1SG of Fox Trp. When we were in B Trp, I don't recall who was in command when you arrived, either 1LT Weber or CPT Bohlender. 1SG was ether 1SG Causey or 1SG Torres.
I cannot recall our 1st Sgt. name. I remember I got along well with him and had a lot of respect for him. I remember him telling me that I had
A lot of good marks with him and you after I transferred from B Troop after my DWI fiasco. If I remember right he walked with a cane. I may have that mixed up too. After so many years and so many faces at times I draw a blank.
I loved soldiering and the Cav was really a special time of my life.
You were a good officer I remember that. A combat soldier not a boot shiner.
Hope everything is going well for you and your loved ones. My clan is doing well. take care Sir!
Do you Deer hunt and pheasant hunt down there? I am still Pheasnt hunting . Deer huntihg is done I took a Doe. Could have nailed to Bucks to but they have to at least 4 points on one side in the zone I hunt in and one did'nt the other one I could not see for sure. Don't enjoy killing them but I like eating them.
I have to tell you I enjoyed my time In Delta under you. You are an excellent officer! Fair and demanding! The Dueller was great! Maddox sucked! My 2 cents worth!I am busy raising for kids, Coaching baseball , and Basketball. I can still take it to the hoop at 51. We did our job well! Hope this finds you and yours well!
