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

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.
