Stone 6

We lost Stone 6 a while back...


A cold ass Reforger, probably 1983...  We slept under our tanks in sleeping bags in the field because it was so cold. But so did LTC Brinkley (Stone 6), the squadron commander.  He slept in a sleeping bag just like we did...

Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
