Honorary Squadron

   I was added on 06 May, 1978 on page 56.  I was added as the Commander, L Troop in Amberg.  As an aside, when I visited the Reed Museum, where the Honorary Squadron Book is kept, I found it in serious disarray, with pages out of order and many incomplete.  Very sad for such a prestigious honor from the Regiment.  Hopefully Ryan Meyer can get this sorted out in the near future.Bob McCorkle2d ACR, 1968-70, 1974-78See More

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.
