"Thank you brother, 58 is a long time. I wish I had a two week dose of 20 y/o so I could have done that 1100 roadmarch. The cold air in your face at top my M113 ambulance was the time of of great pride. I wish I could do it all over again."

Tell us a little about your cav days.
A big lesson on growing up. A very life changing time in my life to form who I would become. To see how the other side of the world lives. To wake up and look out the window in Coburg and guard towers keeping an eye on my every move. From going there a half canner drinking a bud or coors to Beir Heaven! To finding Bamberger Rauch Beir and volksmarch's. I almost got married and stayed there.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Ted Beckle from Minn. Warren from Indiana. Cowboy from Ok. he was a diesel mech (504th) Steve Channel from NYC
