ROB, the one killed was SFC, I had served with him before, but to this day, I can not remember his name. I went on a bender down in Mark-T after it had happened and was picked up by the local, police. one of our officer came and got me. I inventoried his goods for to be shipped home. He had a brother also in Germany, which escorted his body home. To this day I can not recall his name. I am trying to get the obituary from stripes, no luck yet.
Rob, need to pick your brain, back a few years in I Troop, do you recall the sgt that was killed at camp Gates, that was caught in between track vehicle he was lining up for alert vehicles at main gate? I have not caught anyone who remembers who it was. it probably happened before you arrived in the troop. Just checking. Take care.

I do know that 10 members are needed and a meeting place. That can be a home, Pub (Irish or Scottish), a restaurant, a meeting room. Most chapters are in a Pub, so food and adult beverages can be enjoyed with the meeting. There are 4 elected Officers and one appointed. President, Vice Pres., Secretary, Treasurer are elected. Sergeant At Arms is appointed.
thank you for adding me as a friend. As far as the incident at border crossing Waidhaus (it´s Rozvadov on the Czech side) 1965 concerns, I have never heard about it. I did serve on the western border of Czechoslovakia, but I joined the army in 1968. I tried to google up some details, but with no result. However, you may try Google or another searching device as well, if you feel like that. I am also interested in these issues so I´ll try again when I have some spare time.
If you should re-read my post on your profile about the troop, I took a platoon down to BAD-TOLZ, to train with the 10th Special Forces. I can not find any one who remember the date. I have photos of our group on my profile that I had taken while we were down there. If you would look at them and see if you recognize any of the group which went down. would appreciate it.
On your comment about the black Mercedes, that taxi driver would have been Fritz, I used to use him all the time, he had a gasthaus in Amberg on the road to Weiden and a another sgt and I would spent time there.
