Tell us a little about your cav days.
I had the best platoon Sgt named Regan. We all loved the guy. Let's see, there was Steve Goodman, Thomas Schmidt, Hutchison from Philly, Mongul from Manhatten, and many more.
We'd go on patrol and observe what the other side was doing, taking copious notes on what rank and activity was happening at various locations on the border. I didn't really care for the restrictions we had at the border sometimes.
Tell us a little about you now.
I own Advanced Hearing Service in Salem, Oregon. I work with geriatrics testing and fitting hearing aids to help them hear better.
I have been happily married for 27 years and have 5 children. I have a few grand kids and enjoy being Papa. I ride a Harley and belong to Northwest Veterans Motorcycle Club.

I was just re-reading my response to your letter and do not know why I started out with the word 'Nawh'

Sounds negative to me now, what I mean is Hell yeah come on down.

Again about any donations, you would have to take that up with someone, maybe Tacoma Dave from the 2nd Cav Assn.

Others that may be able to help you;

Chris Golden

Frank Hurd

Bill Bewley

They are all here also, I hope this helps you better than my first in a hurry response.

Hey Les,
I post an ad here in the 'Where is ?' category, and at TWS(togetherweserved.com).
I also post in Craigs List, if I know what city they are from.
And I use to use Zaba search, and adsinusa.com, but got a lot of
spam and pop-ups. So I dont use them much anymore.

Hope this helps you Bro

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Les.

We have quite a few groups you might be interested in. You F Troopers have your own group and the first video posted on the site. Maybe you'll recognize someone. F Troop 2/2 Roll Call 1972-75

We also have groups for Bamberg, Border Patrol, Old Timers (you qualify easily), and Northwest Connection you might be interested in among others. Just check out the GROUPS tab at the top of the page.

Make yourself at home.
