"In 83, the building across the road from the main gate was the taxi stand and some little shop. The other buildings were gone and you could not even tell that they had ever been there. That area was used for training."

Hey, I remember that checkpoint well. That's the place where I finished my last patrol as well. I've got the pic somewhere. I'm still in touch with Roe. He lives just across the state from me. Hope all is well with you.
Thank You for your participation in Dragoon Base - We welcome all new Cav members,
Welcome Home - Brother, Tojours Pret.
I served way, way before your time, 3/2 ACR, Amberg. '69 - ' 72. Spent many, many border tours, went out on OP a few times "for the fun of it, didn't have to, but volunterred to break the monotony.
Was a "wheel mechanic", as opposed to a "Track Mechanic" so I was of limited use to the Organization on the border. Volunteered to the off-site, single platoon assignment in a 2-story house outside of Regensburg, for Border tours, many times. Only had to keep 4 jeeps "up" more than once had 4 jeeps on deadline waiting on parts - usually U-Joints from guys peeling out and generally trying to "break" their mounts to effectively "end" the patrol assignment.
I hope this site brings you as much joy as it has me, as I have found alot of buddies from back in the day. We have relived many past memories, both pleasant and not-so-much-so. But it is all good
