Dave, I remember SFC Blevins, he was a good tanker, can't read a map to even safe his life, but a great person and took good care of his soldiers. I agreed you did very-very well in your career, be proud always. Here is my e-mail:

Hi Dave, my friend those pictures bring memories and I remember few of the fellows, some even worked with me like SP4 later SGT Michael Wells. During our first Tank Gunnery Qualifications with the then new M60A3's in Range 45 at Graf. my computer went bunk and we lost the "projected reticles" Mike Wells was my gunner, he came over the intercom and said not to worry, he drop his gunner seat and I pointed the gun toward the general target's direction, Mike fired every engagement using the 105D sight and we (He) qualify "Distinguished". All his years as a M60/A1 gunner did pay off for me and the C Troop. On March 17, 1982 while in the process of saving the life's of 4 Artillery M548 crew members, our 1SG Dusty Collins lost his right leg went 20 155mm shells exploded around 50 yards from his position. He fought the Army Medical Board and won, he made SGM and was awarded the Soldier Medal. Trully Cavalry Cojones!!.
Dave, one of my brothers is a retired MP, SFC (Ret.) Israel Pabon, he live about 15 minutes from me.

We have private mail. That's what I sent you.

Just go to the profile of the person you want to sent a private message, and on the left it says "Send a Message". Click on that, write your message, and it goes to that person only. Nobody else can see it.

Thanks Dave; I have more photos that I'll post when I dig them out, I lost about half of my photos in a basement flood and some of the ones I saved have water stains so I'm now putting them all on CD's with the help of my Grandchildren! Dan.
