Tell us a little about your cav days.
ahhh!. just to many things to write about. i'll just say it was a very rewarding experience. had a great circle of friends back then and still do today. because about 95% of us were draftees,we all took basic together as a bn,went to germany and all came back together. as a result we still have an annual c co reunion.
i truly loved border duty at hoff and kronach and especialy voulunteer duty on bird wing.
Tell us a little about you now.

Welcome Gene,

Glad you found your way over to the Oldtimers.  Where and when did you live in NJ?  I'm in Mays Landing now but have lived many places here in my younger days.
