Tell us a little about your cav days.
Like many much of the time was busy and mundane. Early morning PT, go to motor pool, classes, classes, classes. I guess it would be like combat (minus the fear and being shot at) long terms of boring broken up by a shit load of fun. I look back on our times there with fond memories as we forget the bad and remember the good
Tell us a little about you now.
After leaving the 2nd ACR, I went to Fort Leonard Wood. It is as fun as we remembered from basic training. I hated it and soon after my arrival I realized I should have stayed in Germany. I joined the Utah National Guard and stayed until after Desert Storm and got out. I got back in to the National Guard as an x-ray technologist in 2006 and transfered to the reserves doing the same job. I am trying to get my last few years in so I can retire.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
John Obrigon, Redentor Pasion, James Hunter, SFC John Riggs, Tinker, Woody Thompson
