I don't know. All I know is that his name was Harry Smith and he was a VTR operator. Harry had blonde hair and blue eyes. That should narrow the list down considerably. I don't believe there were that many blonde haired blue eyed VTR operators.
Sigmund, we know So. Cal. well. My wife and I are California Natives and we moved to Arizona in Dec. of '06. We didn't realize that it did NOT COOL OFF AT NIGHT when we moved here. We had a house in Riverside, right on the Moreno Valley border. Our house was on top of the hill where the 215 Frwy. turns off of the 60 Frwy., just above Raceway Ford. Used to go very near your home when we went to the Sobaba Casino ! We are currently looking for a home near you, most likely San Jacinto. We know that Riverside County gets hot, but at least it cools down at night. Perhaps soon, we will be neighbors. I'll keep you posted. James
Sigmund, that is a lot better than puke. I'm serious man, I did not eat for 3 days. I'v done before and everything was fine. Not this time fumes got in and I went down. I was driving HQ 3 and he asked me if I was alright. I was as green as hulk.
Sigmund, REFORGER was an annual exercise that brought units from th states to germany. One division ( HQ + a brigade or 2) against each V corps & VII corps. The 2nd & 11th CAV would rotate who got to participate.
I personnally got to play 1 time with 2/2 ACR, 1 with 1/ 15th Inf, 3rd ID Umpire with 3rd ID. Then returned to Germany twice to play with 5th ID Ft Polk, and 4th ID Ft Carson.
They were like a 20 day ftx for Germany based units, but they where a 6 month process for the stateside units. They also had to pull the equipment from the preposistioned warehouses near K-town.
