Mike, do you remember me from good old Bamberg? Dale Cogdell. I still have a picture of you passed-out with a bottle on your chest! How did we live through all the crazy stuff? Send me a line. I saw John Morrisette before I moved to Knoxville, Tn.
Dang, Mike. Lookin' at those Bikes makes me drool, but I remember the reconstructive surgery very well. NO THANKS ! I mentioned being a Teamster, and I remember, too often, the Coroner picking up pieces of bikers splattered along the highway ! Back in '66, in my first year of College, some dumb old bitch pullet her old Ford Station Wagon out of a driveway, right in front of me. Tried to go head first right through her passenger door ! Had the bike repaired, and SOLD IT ! Don't feel safe lessen' I have 18 wheels under me ! Once again, thanks for being my AMIGO ! ( that's IRISH, like me Mum taught me. )
Hey Mike, I love the side car, how does it ride? Had to put the project bike on hold due to my wifes illness, but it will be built. Got to get it ready before John Boyd retires, so we can have a gatherin, you are invited. We are a coupla yrs older, but its all good. RC
I am reading a book by a former teacher in BAMBERG. She is telling the stories of the cav and the engineers and maybe the artillery , too. But I am not a brother of those who, like her, were civilians, and did not have to pull guard duty at the ammo dump, pull kp or any ot the other bs the army gave us.
I am glat to have you as a friend and thank you for listing you ph one number.
by the way, I lived in Joplin for nearly ten years, 72 - 81 - we all know what happenned there recently, but I learned a lot about the world in Missouri, almost as much as I learned in the ARMY. I left alot of friends in J-Town and now am trying to piece together as many survivors.
Hey Mike! cool bio.sounds like you 'been a busy guy. I didn't realize you
and I were in Germany so long at the same time. On the 17th of this
month I go to the VA doc to make my appointment to have my 2nd knee
replacement from that damn crash.
Toujours Pret Michael,

And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
