Hi Andy,

Thanks for your reply. I remember all of the C TRP 1st PLT folks you mentioned very well. SFC Gravens had a superb platoon. His and mine worked together like a well oiled machine...good times. I recognise your face and of course LT Hovey as well. Needless to say as a PSG in 2 ACR we had losts of interactions with both the SOC and ROC teams. You are right it can be uncanny how some relationships in the Military (especially those in the CAV) seemed to follow one. SGT Cablay was my first squad leader in G TRP 2/11 ACR in Bad Kissingen, Germany in early 1976. He and I followed each other and were assigned together in C TRP he as my 1SG, and again as 1SGs together in 2-64 Armor, There he had HHC and I had D Co. We both were selected as Sergeant's Major on the same promotion list. Stay healthy and safe.

Andy, so far I have found Galen Schroeder, lives in Fargo. If you go to his member's page, he has a web site. I do not see a phone #. I'll keep looking.

Thats right, you were detailed to SOC. Nice! I just retired in Noc, 2009 after 24 years. It was a long journey.

How are you doing? Paul Hovey is on the site now. Do you remember him? LT Hovey then.

Take care,

I have a couple shots of someone shooting a TOW so that must be you. Good memory :)

Not the greatest shots but I'll scan them in. I've recently taken up photography again so it's funny to see just how much I didn't know how to use my camera back in the day.

Hey Andy! What is going on?

I remember that or at least hearing about it but I believe that was while I was still in the Aid Station. I think Tremble handled that one just before he ets's. I did have a guy, I believe that was Wiesenbach, that was beginning to have pains so we had him transported back and he was taken to the klinikum and out it came. He got to spend the rest of the tour in recovery away from Gates.

Hey Andy, Rockrohr and I were the C-trp medics during part of you time. Welcome.

Toujours Pret Andy,
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. Tags also work great for searching).
And 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
