Hi John, it's Bill Morris (Mo). Just wanted to say hi after only a few odd decades. I will have to go find those old pictures, I know I have a couple of them with you in it. Take care for know.
You old son of a bitch. I have been looking for you for years. I have never forgotten you. God I remember our days driving around bavaria with wine bottles between our legs. I used your birthday 5-5-55 to look for you. I thought you went to ft. carson with dave ayers when I went to Polk. That place truly sucked. Got out after that hitch and went into Marines. 6 years as a recon marine. But I will never forget L-15 Damn we were good.
You ever hear from old crew? How about Carl Elliott? He still hearin names on the german radio from the ohio river
Hey, thanks for the post about Tyler! nice words man. thanks for sharing your memories!
Forgot to mention, the last two photos are from a visit to the site last July on the 37th anniversary of the explosion.
Since you seem to be so fond of the Sheridan, I thought you might appreciate some photos I have. One of our C Troop Sheridans caught fire and exploded July 25, 1974 while you were with L Troop. It happened just east of Amberg, a little town called Inzendorf, during a big war game the Regiment was part of at the time.
Wasn't much left of the Sheridan. The black and whites are the official photos from the investigation.
