Harold, If you still need stories for your book, I suggest you go back to Day 1 of Oldtimers and start reading. It was very active back then. Some days it seemed like no one slept. I'm sure you could pick up some interesting tidbits to write about.

Sorry I left you out Harold. We have a condo on the intercoastal, not to far from you in Stuart. We have been snowbirding it to FLA for the last 7 or 8 years. Can't wait to get back into the sun!  Sgt Goldstein, Specialist Keel reporting for duty in Troop FLA! LOL

Here is a short story as best as I can remember Harold, sometime in 1979, I was at Grafenwöhr with M company it was for either Gunnery training or Canadian cup practice I don't remember which one. I spent a lot of time there, anyways I found myself on battery changing detail for the pop up targets one day, we had plywood targets downrange the same size as a Soviet tank, they would pop up and then we would shoot them down. So they call for a cease fire for the entire impact area while the detail is down range swapping out battery's we drive down range get off the truck and then we would walk around to these targets and they were down in a hole dug out big enough for the target and all the hardware to make them pop up. Well some artillery unit somewhere on base did not get the word on the cease fire, we all used the same impact area tankers and arty. Well I am still here to tell you that you really can hear the round coming in, it landed very close to my position I was down in the hole changing the battery out and was fairly safe but I did feel the earth move and they only dropped the one round before they realized what they did, after we got the all clear I walked over to the impact spot and got a first hand look at what a 155 round can do I picked up a piece of shrapnel about 7inches long that was still smoking and kept it for a souvenir and I still have it packed away some where. No one got hurt that day we were all pretty lucky.  And that is a Graf. memory as best as I can recall. I have some more stories some I probably should not write about, but I may come up with some more later. Toujours Pret.
