Marc,

Still rebuilding our mortar section after the deployment, but they're a good bunch so far. Damned proud to have them in the Troop.  Looking forward to seeing them bring some "high angle hell" here in the next few months.

I worked with Max Tritt when I first came to the RGT as a SPC in '94 at Polk where he was the Regimental MG.

Hello Marc

     That is a darn nice looking ring your friend designed and I think it would make an awesome birthday gift for me.  That is what I suggested to my wife and I think I've got better than half a chance of her coming thru for me.  Could you fire off the contact information please?  E-mail ro.johnson@yahoo.com. or post a comment to my page here.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Scouts out

Hi Marc, saw your question about the old troop photos. Were you able to find anything out? I was in K Troop from 74-77 and lost damn near everything over the years.
