Hi Dave, yes, I am, I didn't want to intrude on your forum since I am not a Dragon. I noticed my grandfather's name was listed here, so I thought I'd reach out. His name is Lt. Francis L. Tooley, and I am trying to find out more about what he did in WW II. I have attached a newspaper blurb and his photograph, perhaps you can shed some light on the "Ghost Troopers"? I know Tooley was shot three times by the Nazis: ankle, thigh and upper arm. Thank you for any help you can give me. Whitney Youngs
Dave, I was just looking at our 8th Coronel of the Regiment, I was wondering if he might have been any relation to my old Troop CO, back in 59. the name was spelled different Schwietzer. Robert l. made 4 star then didn't keep his remarks to himself, I think was reduced back to 3 star before he passed away. He was in the pentagon.
Thank's Dave, Franks was the S-3 Along with Robert Young., which whom I worked with when assigned to S-3. Both are retired now.Gen.T.Franks Is in OK. and Robert Young is living in Italy. Still looking for Troop Photo of HHT 71-74. If you happen to come across any please send. Till later.(ALWAYS READY)
Did you receive danger pay while at the Border Camp?
Th VFW is trying to recruit me and I do not think I qualify! They said if I recieved danger pay at Camp Gates I would. I remember talking about it, but, cannot remember if we did. I would be honored to be a member of the VFW, but , do not want to be if I am not qualified. I contacted my County Service Officer and am waiting on a reply if he can find those records.
