I left the Army in 1982. After Bindlach I went to Ft. Knox for about a year in school and then to Ft. Rucker to flight school and Cobra transition. From there to Ft. Riley for a couple of years and finally to Ft. Polk. Except for the schools all my time was in Cav units. After I left the Army I moved to the Kansas City area and worked for Macy's as an Operations Manager for a year and then went to Hallmark Cards for eighteen years inn Manufacturing, Human Resources, and I/T. Retired form Hallmark in 2001, but went to work for UMB Bank in Human Resources until I retired again in 2007. Married in 1981, but no kids.
towards the last of my tour i did want out. i wanted to get back to my motorcyles in the states and do some traveling. but after a couple of stateside assignments i realized that we had a good unit. now i get to ride whenever i want. i have my own company and i work when i want. would of probably stayed in the army longer but my wife passed away in 1988 and i had 2 small children that i didnt want to drag around the world so i chose to get out at 20. how about you have any kids? butch
Do you still have that French flag that you boosted from the French Kaserne on Reforger? I remember you had it on the wall of your room in the C Troop barracks. You never would tell me the story behind it though. So what have you been up to since the mid-seventies?
glad to hear from you. what have you been up to all these many years.have you stayed in touch with any of the old guys from c troop?
ssg langlo and i were stationed together in fort carson after we left c troop and then again in 3rd squadron after that. dont know what happened to him after 3rd sqdn... keep in touch
Brian, Good to hear from you. Yes, You and Spec. Bell and Donahue were some of my orderly room clerks. I remember you left the troop to work in the Sqdn S-1. And when you cleared you were going to Idaho, I have so many pictures of my career and the Troops. I will have to find some of you and put them on line. Also remember you wereone of favorites to remind to get a haircut. Brian thanks again for dropping a line, Top Miller
