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.
Dave, Yes i joined the Bindlach Group a couple of years back but never heard from anybody. I thought maybe they all had passed on to that patrol in the sky? I did just heard from a fellow trooper that was in another troop and frequented places i went to. I just decided to join the Honorary US Dragoons as i is one :) I participate in many functions as a American Legion Rider and have stood in flag lines many times including those at the new Omaha National Cemetery which is right behind me on my fence line. Got a mission on Thursday morning to lay a wreath commemorating our involvement in WWI at the ONC. About them recruits from Nebraska in the 1860's i don't seem to remember them? It was a little bit before my time. I do call myself an Old Relic... RC Bammer
Unbelievable, Dave! I knew (I use the term "knew" loosely - I "knew" him as well as an E-4 / E-5 could know an 0-5...lol) Lt. Colonel Molino when he took over 2nd Squadron sometime in either 83 or 84 (can't remember exactly). You mean to tell me he was there as a Captain as well?
