What's up Mark? I know it's been some time, but I was in HHT 3/2 90-92. I was on the second floor. I retired about four years ago but I did get disability for a rash I developed immediately after the Gulf War. I think it was from the oil fires. There were other symptoms, but they were erratic so I couldn't narrow it down.
Mark,how's it going?I was in Amberg during the same times as you,1989 till 1992.I was in Howitzer Battery's FDC(13E).Even though most there didn't know me by name,most knew me by the cars I owned there.A blue '78 Camaro and a black '84 Z-28.I also owned the white '76 Corvette that was parked behind HOW Battery.Just dropping in to say hello.
