Yes I do. Just can't place a face to you Dusty. Those were some great years on the Rock. We had a great bunch of NCO's and acting SGT's there who made the officers look smart. It wa a great time to be a troop commander! There are quite a few guys from those days on here; guess those days made a mark on lots of us.
Lawrence, if you go to my page, you will find a picture of Sgt Lee and the germand shepherd dog we had. That is the only picture I have of him. I took several pictures of Harry Harriman and others, but they are either lost or in my ex/wife's garage. She passed away 12 years ago so I have to wait till her widow husband lets me in there. You might remember Danny Counter, he was a guitar player and loved to sing. I have pictures of him on my page.
If you have some photos, load em up. We might remember some of those faces. There were a lot of guys there that left some memories, some good and some not so good, but it was part of the times.
Lawrence, do you remember Sgt Lee? I think that was his name. Another Sgt by the name of Mulligan? I think he had been busted down to PFC because of his drinking. I'm trying to remember names, faces are there, the names are fading fast.
In Mexico, Ray g. I was with A troop on the Communications track with Harry Hariman.. We were rotating from the OP outside of Wieden when Private Wolfe was killed in an auto accident. The Lt with him suffered a broken are or collar bone, remember that?
Lawerence, B Trooper's would not not recognize there old Barracks or Christensen Barracks anymore. It's hard for me to go up there and drive down Dragoon Drive, I look for Troop Guidons outside the buildings, formations, vehicles (soft & hard). Sadly I leave post. Top Miller

Hi Lawrence, just looking over some of 1000 + names on dragoonbase and noticed you were there about the same time period that I was, alway's looking and hoping to find someone that was there when i was.....I spent several tours on the border out of camp pittman, I was assigned to the S-2 section in headquarters troop, You may remember SFG wheaton, or SFG Murphy, Murphy came to the S-2 section from one of the line troops, seem's like it was C troop, but I may be wrong, anyhow I got to the ROCK in November of 1968 and rotated from there in June of 1970, I'm now 61 years old, will be 62 in October of this year, I just recently had open heart surgery to replace an aortic valve which was leaking, I have been out of the hospital about a week and seem to be doing really well, Thanks to God and all the fine Doctors, nurses, etc, etc. anyhow drop me a line sometime I would enjoy talking to you...Mike Roberts my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Yep, beat me there by a couple of years. You must have been there in the heyday of the M551's, I came in a couple of months before the upgrade from them to the M60A1 (RISE) and left about the time the M1s and M3s came in.
Hi Dusty, yes we should remember each other, one would think. When I got to B Troop in Dec 71, I recall the armorer was a Spec 5 named Barreno. Check out the pics on my page if you get the chance, they might bring back some names. Mike
