Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
As I look back upon my life it brings me to tears, tears of joy as well as tears of sorrow. Remembering my time in the US Army, especially my time in Amberg, brings me to a bit of sadness because of all that I missed. Here I was surrounded by such a wonderful and diverse group of men I really never got to know. In my immature, selfish, drug induced state I missed a whole lifetime. Hopefully, I have learned in life that people (relationships), no matter how obtuse they can be, are the most important things in life. Kindness, thoughtfulness, as well as patience, tolerance, love and compassion are the keys to divine love and divine wisdom. It's Tom B.'s thoughtfulness that brought me to Dragoonbase and it is here that I hope to make up for something I missed, to reestablish the relationships that mean so much to me. I reach out to all of you with my heart. Bob Lavoie 12/11/10
