Yo Wilder - I ran into CPT Chesne at Ft. Belvoir -he was one of my instructors at the officer advanced course in 1989. My ex-wife always liked you. Our little girl that was born pre at Fulda (hospital 33 days) just turned 30. She has three kids of her own. I remarried a few years ago and have a two year old. Homebased in Pennsylvania. But working a contract in Denver.

Hello - I see a couple of guys I served with at Fulda 81-83. I ended up getting my active duty scholarship and graduated from college in 85. Got a Regular Army commission as an Engineer. Stationed at Ft. Sill 86-89. Ft. Shaftner until medical discharge in 1992. Seems like forever ago. I found CPT Izzo on Linkedin. Building aircraft now. Hope to talk to you soon.

--> Davenport Sinks at the U-Boat
by Bob Atkinson
It was a party very good, Germans, Americans having fun the music played loudly in your ears, every hand contained a beer the Gasthaus rumbled creaked and rattled, was earlier generations that had battled. Max was dancing, beer in hand, to the Um Pa Pa band. Now, Max was a local man, very skilled with trowel in hand. He had this Inn helped construct, with pain, hard work and plaster muck. This scene would not have been unusual, but Max had donned some other clothes. Satin, lace and white frilly tutu. Now, Max was as wide as he was tall, which wasn't very large at all. His beard was growing not really long his mustache trimmed hardly at all. All were laughing at this silly sight. The hairy body, the carefree look. When came our friend to say that we must go to the U-Boat, Davenport to free. “Davenport's getting his butt kickedat the U-Boat”..... was the rally call. Well, for young men who were all friends this was a call to arms. We all dashed out to two parked cars piled in and moved on. To the Bahnhoff Strasse's bar we drove where our friend was being harmed you know. This wouldn't do, we must stop it. Our pride was on the carpet. With eight of us we should prevail. There were other legendary tales of what the men of the 58th had done when a German attacked one of them. They had from Downs Barracks gone en mass burned some buildings and broke some glass (... and... kicked some ass) when one of them had been attacked by a local man jealous of a lass.
