tom,please let me know when you release your new book but don't wait too long I am pushing 82. you should watch and post on harry warners old timers group.every once in awhile when somebody kicks the bee hive theres a lot of activity.
Hello Mr. Costine, Thank you for the time spent looking at my photos.. I have many more and will post others soon.
As for Dad he passed away almost 20 years ago.. he was only 54.
He like you was in HQ . I will have to check with my older brother for the company he was assigned. I need to add more info to his\my profile.
I have some other info you might find of interest…. I think I read a post from you about the man who collected laundry from the base. His business was across the street from the base entry gate. Sadly he too has passed away and his son’s aquired the property.
That was in turn bought by my stepfather and it is where I live now and where the photos were taken.
The large hall is still intact ,where the laundry was processed, and a living quarters is located in the rear, next to the cliff.
I checked the name with Horst (my stepfather) and it was indeed the same man.
Tom, Interesting! A branch of the family from Mass. All that I know about the Rich name is from immigrants who came down through the northeast and wound up in the southeast states. I am from Alabama myself.
I did know one Rich in Korea from New York, but that's about it.
Hello Tom. My Grandfather who I never knew was born in 1896 and died in 1922, his name was Philip Henry Sheridan, the same as the Generals. I have been told all of my life that we are related to the General. Gen. P.H. Sheridan's parents and my Great Grandparents all came from the same section of Ireland. I believe it is County Mayo. Thanks for your interest.
Thought you might like to know that there is a 1933 3rd Cavalry Regimental history book up for auction on eBay. I know it's a couple years before your time, but it is an excellent resource for unit history. You can see it by clicking on this link.........HISTORY OF 3RD US CAVALRY
Joe, I have a 1954 year book. I could not locate that name. Possibly a different spelling? There is a name Asleson but he looks caucasion .Would you happen to have a photo? I'll go through the rest of the book as he might have been moved to another BN.
Hello Tom. Great to read about your experience at the rock. I think that my father, who I have never meet may have been stationed at the Chriatensen Barracks sometime around 1953-1955. Would you know anyone that was around during that time. I am trying to locate some information. Any help would be apperciated. Thanks
