Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Thanks for replying and really great to hear from you. It sounds like you also had a full and rewarding military career. My assignment to G Trp set the foundation for my military career and life in general. In the post Vietnam war military there certainly were plenty of problems. Luckily we had extra duty and the honor of serving on the Iron Curtain. That kept us in better shape than some of the other units in the mid-late 1970s. I think CPT Lind turned G Trp over to you in pretty good shape and you definately improved on it from there. I came to BK while stationed at the Rock to spend time with Sonja's family in Nuedlingen one Christmas. We pulled through the front gate and guess who was pulling front gate duty...LTC Lind the SCO at the time. I followed "Spinner" to Fort Hood after leaving BK in 1981. He was a trip but also a very caring NCO. I managed to get in his company there for a while. He was promoted to SGM and moved to BDE HQs which he hated. I'm still in touch with CSM (RET) Conrad Cablay, and 1SG (RET) Dana Neal. Conrad and I followed each other around alot after leaving G Trp. We served together on the Rock and in Schweinfurt. I was his 2nd PSG in C Trp and we both were 1SGs through Operations Desert Shield/Storm. He just retired from his Civil Service Job and moved to Mississippi. Dana Neal is also retired and living in the Orlando area. Sorry for babbling on so long....I still miss serving...sometimes. Hope you have a great weekend. Stay safe and in turret defilade.
Howdy "CPT" Moncure You are looking good here and just as I remember you in these photos when you were stationed in Bad Kissingen. I didn't realise you served in 1/2 ACR before you came to us there. I served with G Trp 2/11 ACR in a few positions from Jan 1976- Dec 1981. I see that you are a proud lucky 16 member. Unfortunately I missed out on the 3 ACR assignment. I also served in 1/2 ACR as a PSG in C Trp and 1SG of D Co. I was stationed at the Rock together with SSG Cablay also from G Trp 2nd Platoon. He was my Scout Section Sergeant upon arrival to G Trp in Jan 76. "SGT" David Gray TC of G-22 (Sheridan), Recovery Section Sergeant, eventually filled in as the Motor Sergeant through a tank turn in. Excellent troop and alot of great experiences...I really enjoyed serving together with you. Would love hear where you continued to serve and how you are doing now.
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!
