Tell us a little about your cav days.
Best years of my life. Lt. Colonel Molino turned the Cav around when he took over. I was there when we transitioned to M1s in Vielsek. Never saw a unit with more esprit de corps. I remember how many times they had to reset us during Reforger 84 because we kept wrecking the stateside boys. I even enjoyed my time in border ops up in Hof.
Tell us a little about you now.
I work for the Arizona Department of Corrections. My wife and I live just south of Winslow in the Mogollon pine forest where we plan to retire.
Oh, hell yeah. He also commanded the Regiment from July 1992 to July 1994, and was president of the 2d Cavalry Association for many years. This is Tom and I (I was pretty drunk by then) at a Stable Call in Vilseck, Germany, November 2008, welcoming the Regiment back from their final Iraq deployment.
Note the matching ties!!!
Tom and his wife have recently been touring much of the world. He has been posting pictures of their journey on Facebook.
Tom Molino was my troop commander when I was in C Trp 1974-75. Just the other day I bought a wool shirt on eBay that belonged to Tom. Still has all the patches on it, including his name tag. I was thinking about wearing it to the next 2d Cavalry Association reunion to surprise him. He is currently the Honorary Colonel of the Regiment.
