Thompson, Garton, Smith, Eishen in Amsterdam

"Wow....If we were to recall that trip in a book, we would have to make it a fiction because no one would believe the tales.  Window shopping, Randy being chased by Pocahontas, foggy fields, guards with Uzi's and canals."

Hi James  (young Smitty!!!) My secondary MOS was 63C (mechanic) so my last coupla years on active duty I earned a Masters degree in Mechanics & after I retired from the Army,july '87 I worked for Coca-Cola,line mechanic,lead mechanic,shop supervisor & fleet manager,then retired retired in 2012.

Your background is also impressive.

When & where is the 11th ACR reunion this year ?We did it all didn't we? I rotated to Ft Riley,Ks.Then back to 3rd Squadron ( Bad -Hersfeld) 3 yrs.Then Ft. Hood, Texas & retired two years later & went to work for Coca-Cola until I retired for Good.

Do you remember what happened to SFC Hunter as he & Capt Whittenberg didn't see eye to eye,I suspect Capt Whittenberg had him kicked out of Army.Also I Heard 1sgt. Strange had passed away.

I think that Capt. Whittenberg lives in Enterprise,Al. outside Ft. Rucker,the RAD this year (this-area) is in Ft Rucker &,I'll try & look him up while I'm over there,125 miles east of us.

I found  a picture of you ,eishen,garton & thompson in Amsterdam?? ya-ll looked young

My e-mail address is protsman08@frontiernet.net.....Good to hear from you,keep in touch & I'll do the same.
