Hey Jack, I'm an L Troop "tanker" as well.  Although I got there a couple of years after you left, it was still the same crazy shit.  A month or two in squadron then back to the border or Graf, it never changed.  It might have been a little more tense when I was there because I arrived 6 months after Kennedy was assassinated (we still though the Commie's were involved), and I left a year before the Russians invaded Czechoslovakia.  Never-the-less great memories!

JACK, your name still rings a bell with me, you still might know some of the men from I Troop, who was the CO in L troop.. I am going to have to dig up photos and see if you might reconize some of my troop.

Welcome Jack,

You're the second one in the last 30 minutes to join from that time period.  I got there in '62, left '64.  Come on over and join us in the Oldtimers.  Many here...might see an old name or face.  Any questions, just ask and somebody will help.
