"You asked about Capt. Mick Mason. Good Man! I was a 1LT as S-4 in 1970 with a few weeks to ETS. Mick walked into my office and said, "Lt you are sitting in my chair." I got up, saluted and he made me the support…"
Dec 1968 - 2nd Platoon Ldr - Border tour and testing 20mm for M114's at Graf - Assigned as S-4 Officer (as 2LT) by LTC Osborn and was way over my head - Very fortunate to have some great NCO's that got me through. May 1970 replaced by CPT Mick Mason who became a client 20+ years later. The Cav was great - lived on the economy with some wonderful Germans.
