M-24 Light Tank

During my time in Amberg I did a little research on the origin of our "Mighty Mike". The folks at Cadillac sent the photos shown on my Amberg album. The pictures are not our M-66 Jr. but great pictures anyway.

Bayreuth 1973-1974 patriots

For all the men who served with my father and were kind enough to respond and share Thank you you have blessed and filled a part of my heart that has always felt empty. My dad died doing what he loved he had so much pride in the history of the HOW batt.The army was not his job it was his life he was not perfect ( he was a 20 yr old in a foreign land in the 70s enough said) but now it has been confirmed that he was a man worthy of respect. I have honored his life and legacy all of my life but…

Former C Troop First Sergeant Ned Devereaux need any information (tales, stories, memories...) about a great NCO, the late 1SG (ret) Paul Garcia. Paul passed away back in 2004 and a tribute to be published in the Spring of 2014 will need as much information to honor a great C TROOP member.

Ned e-mail address:  neddevereaux@comcast.net.

Dear Grandpa,

I´m her biest friend, we are like siblings and she was always a part of my familiy, called my parents mom and dad - and I now got a "second mom and dad", just…

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was…
