Mick, I ran into Max Tritt at my grandkids soccer game in June and he told me about this site. Checked it out and found quite a few people I served with in M Co back in 83-84 including you. I worked in maintenance and went through recovery and tank turret maintenance training at Vilseck. Spent the last six months there as Capt. Burchams driver through the M1 conversion. I don't do face book but do have an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). I only can get on to this site once or twice a week as I don't have internet access at home. I do however have an I Phone so I can get email anytime. I do have quite a few photos that I will get put onto the site sometime in the near future. Just need to get them onto a disc so I can get them posted. Look forward to hearing from you. Rick (Sgt. Marty) Martin
I just wanted to let you know that I finally got all the platoon scores from CAT-79 and the pamphlet (English only) with the scores handwritten by a Brit. I can't post because the file is 12.1 Mb, but I can send.
Hope you and Joan and the family had a great Christmas and enjoy a great new year!!!! I enjoyed chatting with you a while back and even though it has been 25 year I still consider you a very good friend. You can't replicate the bond we in Amberg formed in just a years.
Sure, I remember you.
Sometime back I saw some pictures of you on this site and it looked like you married a german girl. Must have happened after I left Amberg. (9/79) I want to return someday. I've been in touch with T. Covar, D.Richards & J. Bittay. They all are doing well.
I see you work for the Ill. State Police, I have a nephew that is a Trooper in Distict 5.
I live in Pontiac and have retired from IDOC with 27 year.
Hope all is well, stay in touch....
Hey Mick, I will call you in the next day or two. Tell Joan I said hello......man we had some great times didn't we. Some of the best in my life with friends I have never forgotten. I will be in Dallas next week at a Training Conference but I will call you for sure. Sounds like you made yourself a great life brother.
Hey Micky, I remembered Joan's name after I posted that thread, I've been up in Wi for about 13 yrs now, I'm just west of Oshkosh in Berlin. I married a gal in the AF and when we got out, We didnt wanna stay in San Antonio so we moved to Wi. Been together almost 19 yrs. Glad to hear Gitte is doing good and your lil girl was always so precious!
John.....or Mich as I used to call you. Dude, I have thought about you many times since I left Germany. Would love to see you sometime in the future. You were a very dear friend that I never forgot. Thanks for the compliment on LTC, still enjoying the work but probably am near the end of my fading comet I call an Army career. It has been a great ride. Please write back and let's see each other soon. I agree on the 1911, I have a competition grade pistol that I paid dearly for and I wish I could have that in the STAN next year with me when I head over there. All the best, Eddie.
John, Glad to see you made it here. I found this site by accident in Feb.
Found alot of people we know. Things are good here. I moved from cali. to fla.
The cost of living is less but the heat will kill you ! I've got a son in the Air Force,
and a granddaughter (2 years old). What the hell you been up to? Have you heard from anyone from the zoo? Post some pictures when you get a chance
The whiners making too much money is why I never watch baseball or basketball. They don't deserve what they get now !
As for the Texas Longhorns,. they are my 2nd college team. My X-Wife graduated from there & converted me. But my 1 st team will always be Penn ST.
