Robert E Lee was the best man at my wedding, he moved to Dallas Texas. Last time I had any contact with him was in 1984.

Lee,

welcome to the site, always great to meet guys that I served with. Pretty damn sure we met a few times but after so many years its hard to remember all the names let alone put faces with them. Great group here and it seems to grow more and more quickly. Guess as we all get older we strive to reconnect with out youth....at least I do. lol!

Lee, if you are still looking for troopers, in oldtimers, Tom Blasquweitz, is great at finding troopers.  I didn't spell Tom's name right, we always called him "ski"

Lee, I was in Amberg from 68-71, as a tank mech.  I also drove the M578 tank wrecker, it was too frickin cold for this Texas boy.  I also am a member of the American Legion, I am the service officer for our little post.  Come check us out in the "oldtimers" section, everyone is welcome.

Welcome Lee, I was in K Trp between 74 and 77.  Capt Russell and Capt  Duckworth were my CO's and 1st Lt Marcy was our XO. SFC Edwards was our Plt sgt thru most of my time. There's quite a few of us here from those years. I was on K17, K12 and K16 most of the time. I'm sure we came into contact a few times as tempermental as those Sheridan turrets were.
