Hey Jim,

Glen Graves here. I'm still living in Northern Cali. I found this site yesterday on veteran's day. I was thinking about the old days in K troop.  Daddy B comes to my mind often. He was a true Vietnam vet. K 15 was our tank. Also I remember Sgt Heaton. We also severed together at Fort Carson. Anyway I still have some old pictures from our days in Amberg. Man those were the days!! Take care my piezie

Met Mike Gibson in Frankfurt last November and rode to Vilseck with him. Helluva nice guy! Let me know if you want his address and phone number.

Jim did you ever get Gibs phone number and email I sent you. I also sent some photos using Diane's email but I got a message that it didn't go through. How are things going?

I did some research and found that Forner was born in Anaheim California, which makes him YOUR homie. I also found your internet site where you two were first and second place in the schwanze sandwich eating contest in Furth in Wald in 1976. Due to a Frag rep larum bell there was no schwanze off...... Pity! All I know to do is head down to the Dubrovnich and get a couple of bottles of Peljasec and discuss the possible outcomes. Do you think you would have won?
If it had been a cheese eating contest I know you would blow everybody away!!!

Hey Jim ! That guy was wild as hell. Old Vietnam Vet. I sure wanted him on my patrols though. He was a Great soldier. I will never forget that night. Remember when somebody threw that Artillery simulator or something into the 2nd floor bathroom and blew up that toilet. Here comes a Health and Welfare inspection!!!!! Chittick was pissed!! Who was the CO then? Wild? Oh yeah! Exciting? Oh yeah! Tell Chuck I asked about him. He belongs here too.

Toujours Pret James,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do.), and that you tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley
