Mick, I ran into Max Tritt at my grandkids soccer game in June and he told me about this site.  Checked it out and found quite a few people I served with in M Co back in 83-84 including you.  I worked in maintenance and went through recovery and tank turret maintenance training at Vilseck.  Spent the last six months there as Capt. Burchams driver through the M1 conversion.  I don't do face book but do have an email address (ramartin1957@yahoo.com).  I only can get on to this site once or twice a week as I don't have internet access at home.  I do however have an I Phone so I can get email anytime. I do have quite a few photos that I will get put onto the site sometime in the near future.  Just need to get them onto a disc so I can get them posted.   Look forward to hearing from you.  Rick (Sgt. Marty) Martin

I just wanted to let you know that I finally got all the platoon scores from CAT-79 and the pamphlet (English only) with the scores handwritten by a Brit. I can't post because the file is 12.1 Mb, but I can send.

Hope you and Joan and the family had a great Christmas and enjoy a great new year!!!!   I enjoyed chatting with you a while back and even though it has been 25 year I still consider you a very good friend. You can't replicate the bond we in Amberg formed in just a years.







This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
