I do not know if you remember me. I was a buck SGT. in the second platoon, Lt. Leney was my platoon leader. SFC Rooker was my platoon sergeant. I was there from 1972 to 1975, and then went to Ft Bliss and was in the 3rd ACR from 1975 to 1979.
I last talked with you on the phone in about 1990. Saw your picture as you were getting off a C130 when you were with the 3rd Cav ar Ft Hood. You were detailed to HHT Commo in '73 or '74 for something for awhile and am not sure what. I was the SGT assistant Commo Cheif and RTT operator. You had me over for a meal that you and your wife made. That left an impression as all I ever had before was mess hall and C rats. Hope all is well!
Hey John ,Sorry to bring up bad memories.Those things tend to stick in your head.Overall I have nothing but great memories of my time at the "Rock".I definatley remember when Cpt Thomas took over and turned us all into supermen with his PT .Got to admit I was in great shape back then. I work now as a carpenter and handyman with my partner. Just trying to keep busy.Help with the local VFW and the Masons Jeff
Thanks for contacting me. I appreciate your reminder of the star cluster incident--I'm also glad that nobody was injured, especially as I was in the room at the time! Great days, though, weren't they? So what are you up to these days?
