Hi Wayne

Did I answer your question about the staff sgt killed at Camp Gates? He was ground guiding a 114 into position and something happened to the SFC driving the 114.  I saw most of it. Sad thing was both these NCO were both WWll and Korea vets. Not sure of the date but it was summer 1964 or '65.

Wayne,

Not sure when dad got to Austria, late 1945 I think, and he left March 1947. After the war before coming home he was transferred to the 83d Infantry Division, then the 42d  Infantry Division, and finally the 4th Constabulary Regiment, as a displaced persons officer for all three units, before coming back to the States at Ft. Lewis.

Wayne, on the right side of the page there is a column, and at the top of the column is your name. Under your name is a little box with 4 icons. The bottom icon is settings, looks like two little sprockets or gears. Click on that. This will bring up your profile.

Make whatever changes you want, and then click on SAVE at the bottom and you are done.

Hope this helps, my friend.

Wayne, I know that there is a way to go into your computer and reset it back to a previous time, I think it is called recovery. it may get you back to where your files are that you can not find.

Wayne, I have kept the windows 10 version that they installed and besides things being a bit different it has been working fine for what little I use the computer for. We shall see how it works out.

Wyne, I hope that your misses is doing OK. I went to Commo  School  in1965 or1966 at Bad Tolz run by the 10 Special  Forces .  When I joined the Army, I wanted to join the Special Forces but I was told that I could not because I was wearing glasses and could not jump. While there, I found that many guys from SF wore glasses. I asked and I was told that they had the glasses after joining the SF. It was dissapointing since  I had two years of Jr Collage so I was qualified to do so. Take care, you and your misses.( Commo chief, I Troop 1964-1967)
