Tell us a little about your cav days.
went from PFC to Spec-5 while I was there. We did a round robin type of training. spent a Month in Amberg,a month in Grafenwhor and a month on the Border. Would split troop in half when we went to the Border. Had some great times and loved every minute of it.
Tell us a little about you now.
Retired From the Army as SSG. I retired from the US post Office also. Went to Vietnam in 1966 and received the purple heart. On disability now because of Agent Orange. I came back to North Carolina and got married to a wonderful woman and have been married for fifty years. Two children and five grand children. Life has been good.
I have often wondered how much better of an experience that I may have had if I knew the language? But I understand (?) German is difficult to learn, and I am not facile in learning languages, just barely know english. Took 4 yrs Spanish in jr hi and hi skool, but still could not get to the "conversant" level, cause couldn't "think" in Spanish, and always had to try to translate back and forth - too difficult a process for conversation as you can imagine.
Good morning and Happy Birthday. Looking at your picture from 1960, I am almost certain that our paths crossed, either in Amberg or Gates. Weren't too many around with dimples like that. Hope you have a great day.
I had a procedure at the VA on Dec 4th - Good Pain Reduction, then the other day I tried to move a box and it gave me a sharp pain like a spasm. They are very bothersome, but my overall pain is relieved to a large extent. I hope whatever I "did" heals up.
thanks for your interest man. I was in horrendous pain for 8 months, the pain and pain meds took over my life; probably the worst pain I have ever experienced
Thank You for your interest, and I am sorry it took me so long to find your message..
