ROB, the one killed was SFC, I had served with him before, but to this day, I can not remember his name. I went on a bender down in Mark-T after it had happened and was picked up by the local, police. one of our officer came and got me. I inventoried his goods for to be shipped home. He had a brother also in Germany, which escorted his body home. To this day I can not recall his name. I am trying to get the obituary from stripes, no luck yet.
Rob, need to pick your brain, back a few years in I Troop, do you recall the sgt that was killed at camp Gates, that was caught in between track vehicle he was lining up for alert vehicles at main gate? I have not caught anyone who remembers who it was. it probably happened before you arrived in the troop. Just checking. Take care.

I do know that 10 members are needed and a meeting place. That can be a home, Pub (Irish or Scottish), a restaurant, a meeting room. Most chapters are in a Pub, so food and adult beverages can be enjoyed with the meeting. There are 4 elected Officers and one appointed. President, Vice Pres., Secretary, Treasurer are elected. Sergeant At Arms is appointed.
thank you for adding me as a friend. As far as the incident at border crossing Waidhaus (it´s Rozvadov on the Czech side) 1965 concerns, I have never heard about it. I did serve on the western border of Czechoslovakia, but I joined the army in 1968. I tried to google up some details, but with no result. However, you may try Google or another searching device as well, if you feel like that. I am also interested in these issues so I´ll try again when I have some spare time.
If you should re-read my post on your profile about the troop, I took a platoon down to BAD-TOLZ, to train with the 10th Special Forces. I can not find any one who remember the date. I have photos of our group on my profile that I had taken while we were down there. If you would look at them and see if you recognize any of the group which went down. would appreciate it.
On your comment about the black Mercedes, that taxi driver would have been Fritz, I used to use him all the time, he had a gasthaus in Amberg on the road to Weiden and a another sgt and I would spent time there.
Greetings, say I need for you to go on my profile in the photos from trip to Bad Tolz with the 10th Special Forces, would you see if there is any of the troop that you might reconize. If you could enlarge the photos and see if you might know any of them. Would appreciate it very much.
I don't recall who was CO when I departed, but Moon Mullins was the Platoon Sgt. You must have some old photos, sure would lov e to see them. Look in my profile and see some of the photos I have there. I'll Check with Col. Voke he was Co for awhile then he went to Sqd Hq as the Border Operations officer. He is on the net.
I was in I Troop when you arrived there, I departed in June 64 for the states. I served two tour in the same troop. I have been trying to remember you, the old memory is not like it use to be, that was 59 yerars ago, I was back in Germany in 67, 3rd Inf Div Photo chief and then With Stars and Stripes till I retire 1 Jan 1969. I'll try to find some old photo of some you might remember. Who was the CO and Plt Sgt when you arrived in the Troop.
I was in Camp Gates when JFK was killed. I'm sure our paths crossed at some point. We have a Sgt. Dixon here. He was in I Troop during your time. It's surprising how many of us old fossils are still around. Take your time and look around for a familiar name. If you have any pictures, please post them. If you need help, just ask. Someone will be able to help you.
We must have just missed each other. I left Amberg in August 1964. If you made it to Gates while I was there, I probably sold you something from the PX. Welcome to our friendly group. BS is usually the order of the day.
Rob if you are having problems let me know. Or if you are just updating and re-joining each time you make a change(that won't do). There is a 'Settings' tab under your name on the right side of your page.
Thanks for joining.
