I remember Angelheart and goofy Sgt Bates.  SFC Sale was the coolest NCO as long as you weren't on his bad side.  Do you remember Schoener, Adams and Lancaster?  I've seen all three in the past year.  So, did you stay in Amberg after you got out then?  Are you still there?  I never thought I see the day when I missed that place, but I do.
