Was Becker a Spec5? I believe he was "acting jack" tank commander of my tank, #31 I think, of M Company. Dickie was the gunner but I can't remember the loader's name. After a couple of months, we got a new shake and bake 2nd luey to break-in while Hoensfel.
I was put into Beckers room on my first night at Pond. That night, a serious fight broke out between friends (juicers?) that had been drinking heavily in the Berg. One put his fist thru the wire reinforced window in the door to a crew room. Sacared me shitless, wondering what the hell I got myself into.

If you have the money to get a suppressor get one.  That sort of thing is an EXCELLENT investment.  All those guys who bought those full autos back before Clinton banned them are rolling in the dough now.  Those things went up 100 fold in value.  Even if they never ban them, they're never going to go down in value either.

We tried 3 times this year so I guess we will do it again after the holidays, Thanks for your concern , you and Harry have been very helpful to me during this stressful time and I really appreciate it.  Her COPD wasn't very bad until now but she has to have O2 24/7 now and it's putting a financial hardship on us.  Thank you again

RC, HAVE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  You only get one at a time, make it worth your while have a good one.

The artillery pieces firing were they from the squadron?  My old memory is about gone did we have a Howlitzer Battery.  I never was around them if we did.  plus I was never around M Trp.
