Thanks Tom.  I was "surfing" the net and thinking about Amberg when I found this site.  When I saw SFC Z was on here, I had to join.  Soooo many memories from Camps Reed and May.  Thanks again for the warm welcome.

Thomas, I will need to check my records for the actual date.  I left sometime after the Russian invasion of Czechoslofakia.  I spent my last year there running the Officers club dinning facility.

My pleasure for sure, Tom. Thanks for playin'. That was a hard question!
