WORKED HARDER THAN AT ANY OTHER DUTYSTATION BUT WITH BETTER TROOPS. WE EVEN PASSED THE IG IN 76. IT HAD BEEN A FEW YEARS. BORROWING ALL THE TOW BARS IN NURNBERG AND DRAGGING EVERYTHING WITH US ON ALERT TURNED OUT TO BE ONE OF MY BETTER IDEAS.

Hey Robert glad to see you made your way back to base, I met you a few years ago at the Red barn up by Angels camp. I have not been on that run for a while I hope to make it this year. I have not been riding myself that much since I had my knee operation. Stay well and will talk to you later.
