Bob, I do remember you and Lt Mowatt-Larson. I did a lot of things with L trp I was a mortar man in a Cav unit. I was first put in 2nd Plt with SFC Williams and not long later the Co  talked to me about going to the H.Q. plt in GSR Ground surveillance radar sec. under SSG Wilber Keller. I think you put me in 3rd plt is my room was in there area.for a lot of the time. When we at home station (not on the border) I did a lot of jobs. I drove for the XO for a while, I worked on Como track 577 in Hof and some ftx's. In Graf I worked in support of Gunnery.
