Lonnie,

I sent Mike an e-mail this morning with a link to the web site. I told him you were putting together a list of L-Troopers from the 81-83 time frame.

Lonnie,

I sent you a Friend request in order to send you an e-mail. I know where one of the L-Troop Scouts is from 81-83. His name is Mike Bates, and he was in L-Troop when you were. He was a 19D Private then, and is a National Guard SFC 11B now here in Florida. He works at Range Control at Camp Blanding, and I met him when I was a contractor there after I retired from the Army. Because  I am an old 3/11 ACR, and 2/2 ACR Scout we became friends. I can get you his e-mail address if you'd like.
