Steve, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to B Troop. Of the 38 members so far, only you, Bennett and myself are the only ones from 1st platoon from that era. I hope others will find their way to this site. I found it by just screwing around one nite and googled 2nd CAV. I see that you are still in Midland MI. As I recall that was your hometown back in the day. Same for me. I am living in the same town that I grew up in. Drop me a line sometime here or you can get my email by going to my page and clicking my email address in my bio. Mike
BRIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about time you showed up. There are dam few of us here who are from B Troop in the early 70's. Currie is here. Degen from 3rd plt just arrived about 2 weeks ago. Rhett Bennett is here, but he doesn't come on much, whereas I check-in about every day. Capt. Barry is also here, as is Lt. Atkins, Lt. Harpole, Lt. Godwin. If you click on my name you will go to my page. Once there scroll down the left side and click on " photos ". There you will find a few of yourself. You can join the B Troop group. I started it 2 years ago. I had forgotten both Box and Bain. I sent Currie a whole shitload of names from back in the day just to jog his memory. Hope to hear from you soon. Mike Kultgen
Happened July 25th while we were out in the field on some sort of war game exercise. I'm going back over in a couple weeks to "celebrate" the 37th anniversary of the explosion. I was REAL close to it when it blew up and got thrown over a small fence by the blast.
You can see all the pics of the aftermath here: DEATH OF C-15 (click on link).

Have you talked to Dan Currie since you've been here at Dragoon Base? He is lurking around here. This is his page: DAN CURRIE
Leave him a note, I'm sure he'd be glad to hear from you.
