CWO Joe Brown was a godsend for the 84th! He helped a lot of folks on the Rock with their maintenance issues. Low density equipment was a nightmare for us. AVLBs, CEVs, Cat Dozers, John Deere Backhoes, chainsaws! Both Joe and I lived on the Rock and commuted every day to our Kaserne in Bayreuth.
Hey Mark, It is great to connect with another writer! I just got on this thing about a week ago, so I would ask for leniency in your judgment "not too many takers yet." Most definitely am looking forward to chatting with you. Please do check out my twitter, J. John Nordstrom (my great grandmother's name mother's side all Swedes there all Polarks father's side). I got a novel making Queenbee the major antagonist. She is Nurse Ratched with a law degree, does this sound familiar in the current political circus? What kinds of things have you been writing about? I am familiar with most of the war movies made to date, I especially am into the Nam stuff. If you have anything on the military hospitals in Austria, great, if not, no sweat. Looking forward to hearing back in any case. I have a Linked In under J. John Nordstrom (Joe Jablonski) that might be of interest to you. Joe
