"No, I left 2ACR in 89. I deployed to the gulf war with 2AD (FWD) out of Garlstedt in northern Germany. My unit deactivated in 1992, and I tried to get back to Amberg. I was bummed to hear that they (2ACR) was deactivating then too."

Tell us a little about your cav days.
After a harrowing train ride from FRF and getting lost in the Nurnberg bahnhof I arrived at the Regimental HQs at merril barracks at 0300 hrs and had to be present for a briefing from the RCO at 0600. I eventually was asssigned to K troop, third squadron and arrived there a couple of days later. Naturally, they were in Graf for gunnery in the middle of winter, what could be more fun than gunnery in a good Bavarian winter?

MSG Henry, good to hear from you. I remember quite well when Troop maintenance was absorbed into Squadron Maintenance. I hear from Arbogast every once in awhile. I saw him in 2001 when I was stationed on Vicenza and we were in Graf training. I remember that tool who did the header off the car quite well. In fact I remind him quite often while I'm shaving what a dumb ass he was!!

I think I do remember...If it was the incident I'm thinking of, it was during the opening ceremony and keg tapping...LTC Wallace and the whole command group was there to witness the fight.

There was a girl in the TMP office I used to flirt with. Forgot her name though, but I think she was still there when I left in 89.
Ernie Roth, myself and another trooper were selected to do a "dog and pony" foot patrol on the border for an Army Times write up. The snow was so deep, we had to wear snowshoes and still sank every few steps. Roth kept us motivate all the way up the mountain though.

You listed Ernie Roth. He is still in Germany (Retired and working in Graf I think). He was a CPL when I first met him in 86 (I was a PVT) and then years later I succeeded him as 1SG of the BRT in Vilseck. Great guy he is.

No. I am not fully retired yet but I went to half time...about 20 hours of patient care a week. I think that keeping busy is the best of both worlds. Those few half days off during the week makes it feel like I'm on vacation everyday. Plus the income doesn't hurt! Hope you find that happy medium.
Stay well.
Steve
