Ha ha, I know Mike, I trusted the "official list", which has now been changed thanks to you. I was a little suspicious having two "Henry J's" in a row. That never did sit right with me until I got digging in those year books this morning because of YOU. Oh, and I found Wasson in the '64 book.
Hello Mike, yes I worked my last year in the service before I retired. I have been trying to obtain some of the stories, I had worked. After they closed Stripes in Europe, all of the files were archived and put away. I was trying through Stripes in Washington, they told me that they might be opening the files after they were changed over to digital. Was the story a big piece ?, I might be able to check with some of the others in the Association with me and see what they might know. You might also talk to Dave Gettman and see if they might have a copy of the article. I'll check also with Ned Deveraux, the Cavalry Associations Editor or have Dave check with him. I'll check through Stripes and see what I can find out and let you know.
That picture was in th English Channel and right after I took it the weather got so violent that we were not allowed on deck the rest of the day. Fortunatly I was bunked in the center of the ship ( less rocky ) I also was a city boy ( grew up in Newark, N.J. in the 50's ) I had a great job on the ship going over to Germany. One of our officers wife was pregnant so he flew with her but shiped his dogs on the Rose so I had the duty of caring for his dogs and was allowed on the deck for officers and their families.
Michael, in 47 we visited relatives who lived right across from Prospect Park around Christmas time. I was just a little squirt 8 years old. We had a snow storm that dumped 2 1/2 feet on us. The police shut off Prospect Park because there was so much snow they couldn't find the lake so my dad who came from work the next day had to traverse around the park to join us. Memories of the Bronx!

Good to have you back on board. Sorry I haven't dropped you a line lately. Been running around with my tail on fire, trying to get a little done here, a little done there. Pretty hectic trying to keep up with everything, but at least I stay busy.
