Charles, Looks like I may have made a mistake about the REGT. ADJ..  I thought his name was Brigham but you refer to him as Bingham. Hmmmm, too many miles and too many falldowns.  Regardless, you are right, it was a different time back then.  That said, let me run some names by you.......My Co. CO was CPT Holt.  After the reflagging in '72 COL E.B.Clark III left and was followed by COL Schwietzer (sp).  His new XO was LTC Hamilton.  Take Care....Allons or should I say Suivez Moi.
