Yea, PICT1006 is Rick Bulak, in PICT 1024 I had forgotten that FDR Parker was the third .

In pict1025 I knew that was Webb, I recognize the other fellow as someone I was not close with and can't come up with a name. BTW what was Coward's first name  --  I,m coming up blank.

Ward -

New to the site, but I have some photos of some of the same folks you do.  I was only on the Rock for about 18 mos, got traded to HHT Regt ( Regimental Border Ops Center).

During my time there I was in 3rd Plt on an M113, forgot the bumper number, though.  Frank Parker was my driver.  Moved to 2nd Plt when someone had "personality problems" there, and took over B-24, which I promptly named Bucket O' Bolts.  Had 6 weeks to learn how to shoot the damn thing, with Mark DeRuyter gunning and Stanford loading. Went to Graf and missed qualifying by 1 target hit .  Jackie C Packer wasn't happy with me at all.  I didn't care - I was going to Regt in Nurenberg.


Anyway, will get pics up soon.  I have tentatively idendified you, Bulak, Felker, & Laroche, in my pics, others I recognize but can't come up with names.

Hi Mike, I was probably on CQ when I took that pic of LaPlant. We would sit at a desk just outside of the orderly room by the vending machines so we could see who was coming in the door. Why was it when you took a picture of some one their middle finger automatically came up? Mike

Mike on one occasion at Graf 72 I was driving 16 or 17 down a tank trail and Lt Atkins was in the TC hatch. We were being paced by one of our hq plt jeeps on the hardball and they said over the radio we were doing 50+. As i recall the steering at that speed was very sensitive to any input and the ride felt just like floating. Mike




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.
