Tail Rotor strike at Graf

Hello while I was stationed with the 2nd ACR out of Feucht Army Air Field. We were at Grafenwoehr at the FARRP and Ed out Tech Rep for the M65 Tow System walked in to the T/R one day. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there that remembers also what happened. I'm trying to get this information for myself (then PFC Bratland) and Sgt Oski. I remember that after some time Ed did come back and talk with us at Feucht. The accident had left a scare where his cheek had been.  Thanks …See More

Toujours Pret Roger,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley
