Wayne, I do not have a roster of I Troops Officers for the 1964-66 period. My Recollection of the following is correct:

1. 1LT Bill Wagner, CO upon my arrival Jan. 1966

2.  1LT Dave Armstrong , XO, USMA, made BG I understand

3.   1LT Richard Venes, USMA, succeeded Armstrong as X0.

4.   2LT BIll Halloran, Bowdoin College Maine, where Joshua Chamberlain of Gettysburg Fame became President.  I am 74, and my memory is great either. TP, Dick Rees

Hi Wayne,,

 I do have some photos from Amberg, Il send them out as soon as I scan them Into the computer, Il try that tonight, When I was In L Troop I had to dress up In a Sceck uniform for a group of French officers on an OP On the Check border at Marktreadwitzs,, I was In the 4th platoon In I troop, I went home In April of 65,,The first sergeant was Sgt carter at the time, I don't know If you remember Joe Roman, He got his head caught In the turret gear nearly lost his head, we went on leave to Italy together, That was a blast, got arrested In Rome, Joe climbed up on a statue of a gladiator, we were shitfaced, But they let us go, we stayed with my relatives In Como for awhile, My cousin had a tour boat on the lake and I was working on the boat for a few days,,,  I would talk to the sweet American school teachers on vacation In broken English hiding my Boston Accent,, then after  bedding them I would say, Oh by the way, when you get back to Boston look up my brother Vinnie, heheheheheh, they would get bullshit,,

Wayne,

The Tartan is Clan Morgan. The Book of Deer suggests that the Morgans lived in Aberdeenshire. At one time they were classed as a Sept of MacKay. The name Morgan, meaning 'sea-born' or 'bright', may be Celtic.

Does this help you Wayne?

Sgt Dixon - I use the formal address because I was just a peon when I knew you - second(?)(my memory isn't the best either) platoon mortar squad.  Maybe you will recall that I was the guy who purchased a J C Higgins 9 shot .22 revolver from you just before you rotated out in '61.  I got the required shipping permit and still have that pistol.  I don't have any rosters, but do have some pics.  However, I have been doing some remodeling, and they are in storage (somewhere).  I will find them but maybe not before next year.  If Hof was the place with the castle, then yes, I was there - I have some pics from there too.  And yes, I remember the company commander - seemed like a good officer - 4 star! wow.  

thanks for the note  - joe

Moon Mullins was my platoon (2nd) Sgt. I drove I-27 for Sgt Duke. Most of the NCO's I knew were WWll and Korea vets. Our equipment was also of that vintage.

Hi Wayne 

I somehow missed your message about the Special Forces in Bad Tolz. I do remember something about this but can't recall when. If I had to guess it would be in 1965.

BTW What platoon were you in? I was in Second Plt tank section with Sgt Mooney and Harrison. I went back and forth between tank and scout sections as needed.
