Wow. He hasn't aged at all. At the age of 25 he looked 50

Hmph. OK, well it's been this long... Thanks for leaving them notes, if you're friendly with Rick Martin the mechanic, tell him to check his board. :)  I don't do Facebook, too many ex wives out there.

Something is up on the way down with that Dave. For some years I just looked at my wife’s. I liked it . So I got an account. What I do not like anymore is the political crap and I am done with that. Just hide any political post. All sides. I have my one vote. I hope! Do not respond! I have visited with many people that I never would have with out it. I like messenger. You helped create this site and it is great. Your deal does bother me. You at least deserve a detailed explanations why? Hope your feeling good man. Tojours Pret!

Dave! So FB locked you out? WTF. I like it and have been able to visit with people that I never probably never would have otherwise. What I do not like is the political BS. I know I probably piss some of the boys off being a Democrat. But I am not going to agree with something that I believe is wrong just to be liked by anyone. That would be cowardice and so Un Cav like!
Have a great week end man and thank you for everything you have done and do for the Vets! Tojours Pret!

Thanks for the information on SSG Crump! I haven't seen him since Dec 1975. And we likely did cross paths. I remember seeing the trucks hauling the remains of the M551 back to the Rock in '74.

Actually Dave, Camp Reed and Camp May belonged to the 3rd Armored Cav when I was there.  So 2nd AC must have expanded its border sector footprint sometime after I left in December 1966.
