I am still living outside Ft. Leonard Wood. Oldest daughter is colorist at a salon in Manhattan NYC,oldest son USAF intel guy at Ramstein, youngest daughter is a brand new 1st grade teacher in Rolla, MO and youngest is still in college. I have your cell # somewhere so I'll call if I get a chance. Working as a civilian dermatology PA now so I have even less contact with the Desert Storm bunch. So I guess I'll stay up on this site and see who shows up.
Sir, do you remember a youngish corporal in the radar section who arrived and began to tell folks in C Troop Aggie jokes in 1977? That was long ago. Jack Miller stuck me with the nom de guerre "Davey Crockett". That persisted until I retired a Captain in 1994. I always remembered Captain May's orders: "Remember your regiment and follow your officers!"
Are you the b-troop xo who would proudly explain to anyone who would listen, that there are thousands of places where one can become an engineer, but only one place where you can become a Texas Aggie? If so you and "John Wayne" Holley were the two best officers I served with in my short 4 years.
Good morning Sir. I seems that our Beloved Regiment was and still is a major stepping stone to the 'Stars" I was in 1st plt. C Trp. when you were there. I was driver for SSG Webb. Lt Becker was the Plt. Leader. Lt. Becker was in C Troop s a cadet in 75 and returned as a brand new Lt. Congratulations on a stellar career. Always Ready, Sir.!

Sir,Bill I was curious if are the same Lt.Weber who tortured a certain Sgt. on border patrol with the question "WHAT if this or that happened?" You,if you're the same Lt.,would take a group of troopers to volksmarches on weekends.in your personal vehicle.If you are, than all those questions must be part of the criteria for promotion!Congrats on Making BG whether we met in C-Trp or not. Best wishes ,(Sgt)Rick "Reamo"Reames yrs73-77
