Eric, So sorry, You were always such a great guy. I don't have facebook. I'm kind of a private guy now and I try to stay away from the socials but it would be great to comm. with you for sure. Where are you now, NY.? Of course I have a regular email and phone for sure and I'd be happy to give you both. Not sure if I should just put them on a message board. Not familiar with this site, is there a way to private message you? Not even sure it really matters that much but it would be great to talk. I have a ton of cool pictures to share here or send to you. Let me know what you think, just great to connect man, it's been awhile.

Eric!

My head just exploded, how are you man!!!!! I was actually searching for SFC Gonzalez and somehow I stumbled on a post looking for him on this site from you and joined immediately! I miss all the guys, some of the best years of my life. Get back when you can. Take care man, miss you.

Eric,

I saw your message to CSM Cablay. He hasn't had any activity since joining, and think he may have made an error on his e-mail address when he registered and can't log on. Try this and see if you can contact him: conrad.r.cablay3.civ@mail.mil

He had too many "L's" in mil.

Hey Brother, Things are going good. How about you? Still in the reserves, or is that done yet? Take care.

Eric,

You might be disappointed visiting Knox, it's not the Armor Center anymore. Everything moved to Benning.

I'm now a Captain in the Kentucky Department of Corrections. Drill Sgt. hunter and I had the 1st platoon, I think Mayberry and Costello had 2d and Morales and duran had 3d. Man that was a long time ago it seems, but at times just like yesterday.

I went from Ft.Knox to 2ACR Regt. Hqs. Then Ft. Polk, U.S. Army Recruiting command in California, then back to Ft. Knox. I retired a SFC in Sept. of 99. I ran into Costello at Ft. Knox about 10-12 years ago and have not seen him after that. I attended ANCOC with a few of the Drills from B/5C/1. Great to hear from you,I hope all is well?

Not to discourage you, but my dad spent about 11 years off and on of his 29 year active career as MSG before he got 1SG and finally SGM.

Hey man, I can't place you for some reason. Donaldson and I were close too. I remember Groten well, I still tell the story about how he hot loaded (preped) 4 or 5 AT-4's for me to fire back to back at that make shift range we created comming back into Suadi. Nice to hear from you.

Yeah -- Kneable and I were on the VII Corps Boeslager team together. We were stationed/training down in Amberg at 3/2 ACR while that was going on, and he used to give me a lift back to the Rock every weekend. Good guy. Because he spoke German, he'd always raise a fuss whenever we went out and the owner of a bar or restaurant didn't want to let us in because I was obviously a GI (with the haircut). Inevitably, they always relented.
