"We had the old 1911A1s when I was in 2ACR.  I was long gone before the Beretta showed up.  BTW, the SIG the Army's buying is all American, built here, thought the company is Swiss/German in origin.  I've kind of followed…"

"Warren, excellent pictures. It was a pleasure to serve in that unit. So many great guys.   Top Williams was full of charisma and an excellent leader. He was the finest soldier I ever met. I hope he is doing well. Toujours Pret!"

Warren, I'm anxious to hear about your hunt this year. It was real bad for us in southeast Tx. this year. The deer stayed nocturnal all hunting season, one friend killed a 10 pt. That was the only good deer I heard about. Yeah man, let me know about your new hunting in Pa. I know I have to practice more, but it's a pain with my 308 because it's a featherlite, but I do have a Marlin 30-30 lever action that is fun to shoot, but I have it sighted in with the Hornady leverevalution rounds, which are expensive.

I would truly hate to move again, it would be a large job now.  Our season starts Nov. 2nd I will have to check the book to make sure.  Good luck!!

Warren, are you going to hunt this year?  I'm starting to get excited again. 

At 5:34pm on September 4, 2012, R C Johnson said…

Warren, I'm going to take my tractor to my brothers farm next Monday and start to get ready for hunting season. At this stage of the game, that will be the only place I hunt this year.

 Devore wanted to become a chopper pilot. Do not know if he ever did. I was in CSC and then HSC 1/72nd Armor at Camp Casey.

 Warren,

 We had a SGT Rucker in the HQ tank section from Texas.

 Warren. Nice photos. I remember Devore and Snooks and could tell who they were by seeing them. I also remember Wester and Rucker. I arrived on the Rock and Delta June 1978.  Captain Skinner was top shelf in my opinion as was D Co and the 2nd Cav.
