Hello Larry, yes we are about 30 miles apart. I spent two tours in Amberg 59-61 and 62-64. I retired in 1/1/69. I have lived here since I retired. We have another member living here in Fort Worth Ken Morren. Your name rings a bell, from where I don't know.
Hey Michael, good to hear from you. I remember your face but don't remember you. It's funny but I can't remember a lot of names anymore. The faces are all still there but a lot of the names are not so clear. I was the M-Co Armorer and Supply clerk most of my time in Amberg. What did you do in K-Troop? I got in touch with one other guy from Amberg a couple of years ago, named Mark Holler. He was in M-Co and transferred to L-Troop after I left in 1974. Did you ever know him? Stay in touch.
