Hello there, Dave, nice to meet you.  Thanks for the information about LTC Brinkley.  He was a hard-ass and incredibly competent commander----the kind of guy that legends were made about.  Love your state----nearly decided to retire there.  

All best,

-Dan

Dave,
You're putting me in a bind. I didn't know you were on sick call today. I scrounged up a nurse for Shannon, she was a scream. I'm gonna send you a nurse but you have to share with Shannon.

Mark and I stay in touch. I'm trying to find a night watchman. I feel responsible for your well-being and I know the cellar gets cold at night.

Thanks Dave, I saw and sorry to say, I had a hard time recognizing Pond Barracks.

Wow it sure changed! Could you imagine if we had the Park back then?

Stay well and God Bless....

Okay David

But give me a little time - I have been working hard to get this house in order.  Cleaning up 10 years of my wife's "house cleaning".  You would not believe what I am finding.  It was like if we can't find it buy another or I think we need this this so just buy it.  Christmas presents that were never wrapped or stuff we got UPS never opened!  WTF

I dare say anything - she just gets pissed off.  Hey David, if you need ANYTHING don't buy it - just ask me, probably got 3 or 4 of them!

Hello Dave, I was in Amberg from 81 to 84, I was part of the Stinger team in HHT, Did several border tours at May and Reed but since I was really ADA I ended up doing alot of gaurd duty in Graf and Vilsek, But it was an amazing experience and I had the time of my life, I met some great people there that I still think about to this day and look forward to reconnecting with some of them

Hi Dave,

I served in 2d Cav in the 70's (2/2) and 80's (1/2) and am planning to attend the Reunion next year. I saw your note to wait with reservations, but do you know yet what dates will be offered in the package; i.e., which nights we'll be staying at the Eisenhower hotel? My problem is I live in Germany (Bamberg) and I'm trying to plan a trip Stateside for the Reunion and to visit friends and I need to know what nights not to book at other places.
