Good Morning Capt. Looker, WE just became friends on the dragoon site and I wanted to let you know that we have a face book page dedicated to Pond Barracks. It was started less than 2 months ago and we are already in excess of 300 members. It was set up for people who served there to reconnect and reminisce of the time we all served there. I was there from July of 82 to Dec of 84, most of which I was with M Co, which was a little before your time. Would love to have you come over and check us out. If you have a face book account you can request member ship and see what we are all about. Your predecessor, Capt, Jay Burcham, is a member there as well. Hope to see you there.

Toujours f'in Pret! The last time I tried to connect, you were running an ROTC program somewhere in Pennsylvania (how long ago was that?) and now you're in my home state. I was truly proud to have served with you. Hope you're doing well.
I have many fond memories of you. Let me take you back about 26 years. This young E-5, (who shot well for your XO), had his 18 year old German wife (now of 29 years) could not get on post because she did not have a USAEUR driver’s license. You sir walked across the parade field to my young wife walked her to get her license. Stayed till she was done! This was leadership Sir.
I did many field problems with you as the "Ole Man" CO and you were always a TANKER. Whatever you have found yourself doing after the CAV I am sure you have shown the same type of leadership.
I still have the picture framed of when you reenlisted me that sir was a proud day for my wife and I.
Thank You and I am sure you will arrive to a Hero's Welcome at Fiddler's Green.
