Of course I don't mind, that is what they are there for. As I said to Laws just a short time ago, I have some more pics I will be posting soon. I think I have about 40-50 more that are suitable for posting.

Bob,

sgt Harrington here, I drove for Capt. Cruz "Suffa". Those were the days for sure. I would like to get in touch with many of the same guys sgt Borges, sgt Breeden, "Trigger" (Helton). I don't know if you remember me, I drove for Cruz probably for the last 6-7 months before ETS., when we were on the Grenze I worked Op's. My last tour (June84) I was with 3rd herd.

Onyx went everywhere with K-troop. I remember a lot of the names you mentioned above. Knott, Helton, Sangster, Wilhelm, Borges. Also SSG Terry Childs, Sgt Oney, SP4 Bob Dope, I could go on. Wonder where all of them are now. The 2nd ACR is having a reunion May 15-17th in Elizabethtown, KY near Ft. Knox this year.
