Melvin, I was in I Troop and also in G company till they change the Cav. unit designations.  I served with the unit from 59-60 and again from 62-64.  Your name sounds familiar, Trying to place you.  My old memory has lost a lot with old age.

Maybe you can help me on an item, I have been trying to remember.  Do you recall when we sent a group down to Bad Tolz, I believe it was 63. I went down with the group to train with the 10th SF.  I have photo's from the trip.
