"Again "Then" and "Now"! The shot was taken in a small village called HEBANZ near the town of Marktleuthen. It is funny to see how the trees grew through the last 30 years!"

"Yes, I could have done patrols forever.  This picture must be from my first patrol, sometime in 1983.  No hardtops on the jeeps yet and I am sitting in the back."

"Anybody happen to know when 1/2 ACR transitioned from M60A1s to M60A3s?  We always talk about the A3s being old, but if I have the history correct the A3s only went into service about 1979.  That would suggest the ones at the Rock could…"

Mike,  Thanks for posting the videos of Camp Gates, you are right it is ashamed to see the place in such disrepair. It is like the place is being disrespected. But it does bring back some memories.

Hey Mike, thanks for the comment. I was also a bit discouraged. Did you ever see the movie "12 O'Clock High"? In the opning scene an airman from WW II shows up at his former airfield in the UK some years later, in serious disrepair. It was a Cavalry version of the same flick!
