We worked together in the SOC with SSG Ritter/LT Hovey. Before that I was a 19D with Ritter in A-trp from 85-89. I spent 3 years in 1/9 aircav at Ft. Lewis then left the service in 91. I sold my commercial remodeling business in late 07, and have been doing residential contracting to stay busy when I'm not riding dirt bikes or out on the fishing boat.
I live in Newberg Oregon, which is just outside Portland on the way to the coast.
You nut! You didn't put in the SOC for one of your duties. How are you doing. I just got on this page a few days ago. I retired from the army in 03. I am currently living in reno, NV. I am the Senior Army Instructor for a JROTC program within the Reno school district.
Wow! I have been thinking of putting together a book about the border mission, and now I have found all you guys. I will give you a call once I get my idea on paper as to what I would like to write about. Drop me a line.
Thanks for putting me on to the lincense plate frame. Living just outside of Ft Benning I see all types of frames like "infantry" "ranger" "airborn". IThat will all chnage when the Armor School redeploys to Ft Benning to the form the new Ft Benning
Thanks Doob, I apppreciate your feedback. As I mentioned to Gary, I have some additional footage which I'll post soon. One question for you: during your 1982-1984 tour were you in Bamberg or Bindlach? Maybe we crossed paths or 'handed over the Ops Center' to one another. I wonder whatever happened to the Regimental Inspectors a.k.a. ROC such as CSM Trobough or SFC Booker? (theirs are some of the few names I recall).
I will also post some Bindlach 'the Rock' videos too. My old billets (Company D) are now a nursing home if you can believe that, and my old barracks room is where they store office and medical supplies. The indignity of it!
Best Regards from Zürich,
