I ask you, whose bright idea was that turning in the entire M-60 tank at same time?  Now who will patrol the border in summer of 83? No one left on the border except for 58 Engineer. We certified and carried out the mission without any complain. All this was not a small task at that time. In return not word of thank…See More

Border Belle certificate for my Mom - June 1981

1981 Border Belle Certificate for my Mom.  My mom and I have kept this sacred Border Certificate that she was awarded in June 1981, when she visited me as a 2LT in Fulda. Of special significance is that the Blackhorse RCO, then-Colonel John Sherman Crow, signed the certificate. Allons.
