Need Help !

Brothers,  I need help with identifying those that were on reaction force with me at the time K10 burned on the border. It is of some importance and it wont put anybody in hot water.  If you were there with me you may have had been exposed to Depleted Uranium from the burning of the Tow Missiles.  I will share more if you were involved.See More

Hey Thom. Last I heard you were still living in Germany, but that was some time ago. I'm back in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Crazy times back then. Always wanted to be "short" but looking back it was a great time. I found Sgt. Oney on here and a few others. I also became a Grandfather back in December. Glad to hear from you. Keep in touch.
