Frank,Vilseck is near Grafenwohr.In my time both were training posts.In 69-71 you went to Graf for TCQC ,Vilseck was a supply post.It had food for the barracks that were near for the mess halls,appliances,got my refrigerator from there for our apartment .Took my drivers test there for jeep and truck.Vilseck is where the 2nd Strykers are at .Most of them are in the Gulf now.
Hi Frank, I enjoyed myself also, what made it the most memorable was, it was my first duty station so everything I learned stuck like glue.
Santa Maria is a very nice place, it's close to everything to enjoy in California.
hey frank its cool to be able to go to sturgis motor cycle rally and not have to drive so far to get there plus riding through the black hills to get there is awsome I used to ride dirt bikes also but kinda got to wild had to get a harley and tone it down. should be the other way around. im more cautious now then when i was riding dirt bikes.
Since I'm the history guy around here, I thought I'd leave you with this little bit of info about your home town...........After the Mexican war, the Regiment moved west to secure the country’s newly acquired territories for the influx of settlers. In June of 1849 troopers from Company F under the command of Major Ripley Arnold established an encampment along the banks of the Trinity River in Texas, which they named Fort Worth in honor of General William J. Worth, whom the Regiment had served with during the final years of the Seminole War. This area is now known as “the fort that became a city”, Dallas/Fort Worth.
It is very nice to be in touch with you.
My experiences in D Co were among my fondest.
I took many several pictures but I lost most of them. Fortunately, I was able to find a few at a relatives closet.
Things are going well. I learned the 2nd ACR founded Fort Worth where I live. Such a small world.
I remember SFC Crump as a no-nonsense professional who made his soldiers excell.
I hope things are going well for him.
Of course, I hope things are going well for you and your family too.
Al for now.
Hey Frank, it's great to see your pictures--they bring back many a memory. I remember you well. Glad you found this place. I know SFC Crump is on here, but don't know of too many other DCo folks from our time.
