Not too bad overall, but working my butt off with my wife laid off since Nov of last year - lots of hours in with the Sheriff's Office, but that is my "fun" job so it is ok. I am really looking forward to making some long term plans for retirement (still at least 12 yrs down the road) and having less people in the house. I would really like to have some time of my own for a change. How are things on your end?
Man, we all did crazy stuff back then. I remember that somebody got that German girl baggy a lil blonde girl totally wasted and blamed me. I didnt even do it. I dont recall flores falling asleep on the bus but I do remember him being drunk on thanksgiving and CPT Caroll walking in the barrack and he said happy thanksgiving Sir and throwing up in the hallway. His teeth went flying out with the vomit. LOL now that was funny.
Mike, I think his name was flores or something like that. Were you around when Parisian got there? He is an SFC somewhere. I am doing well. Retired in Nov, 2009 as a MSG/1SG(p) I ran into CSM Cablay a few times, SFC (CSM) Gravens retired in 2006 as the USAEUR CSM. I have seen or had contact with a few people from Bindlach but not that many. I had a good time in the Army but time to move on. I work for NASA now in California where I am from. I used to work in Lansing, Michcigan as a Field Service Rep for B.A.E. they make MRAP's for Spec Ops. I have 5 kidas and my 17 Year old daughter joined the Army and she will be leaving for basic in August as a movement control specialist.
Mike, funny because I thinking of you and your motar friends this past weekend. Who was the mexican dude with the fake teeth. He had his family in Germany for a little bit. How long did you do after the "Rock" Dan Gastelum
