If you look at the Troop photo from 1774 I am on the bottom left. count six guys left to right. Don't be hard on yourself, the most importiant thing is you are alive, retired and still above ground. I live in Gaithersburg, MD so it won't be a long drive for me. Keep in touch and I hope to see in October.
Great to hear from you. Let me help you remember me. I was the only Black guy on Pond Barracks who could speak fluent German. Back in those days you were a tight NCO. You did not loosen up until you got short. We started to get to know each other on your way out.. I remember you talking about going back to NJ to be a Cop. I had to get out of the Army in 1977 to get out of Combat Arms. I went back in 1978 got into Supply and stayed until retirement 1994. I got out as SFC/E7, went to Univ of Maryland and now I do Contracts for the U.S. Department of State. I got about 3 more years and I will retire for good. Oh, I got the chance to be stationed in Italy for 13 years. The Army was good to me. Hope to see you in PA this year. Last year I was the only Trooper from I Troop. Ciao and keep in touch.
