his name was jonathan jones and he was the loader of the vehicle he was in when he was killed.  we were on manuvers against the canadians and he was on rear guard as they were traveling down a dirt road and there was a low limb they were approaching and the TC ducked and jonathan didn't and the limb caught him on the back of his head and pinned him to the turret and broke his neck  it was the only loss of life the 3 years i was there and was a sad day for all concerned for i knew him well  we traded 8 tracks and cassettes all the time he was there which wasn't long

Yes, I remember we were on that Sheridan M551, I-32, and the four of us made Master Gunner Crew that year (77). Nice to hear from you. I'm also retired, but in Florida. Havn't heard anything from David or Harvey, have you?
