Tell us a little about yourself:
I left Fulda at the same time as my Troop Commander Cpt Walter (Bucky) F. Ulmer III. I next served as an instructor with two of the New Equipment teams from Fort Knox, M1 Nett Doctrine and Tactical Training Instructor, and M1A1 Transition Team as Team Master Gunner. My next duty station was Schweinfurt, as A 2-37 Master Gunner. After 3 years I headed to Ft Riley, where I served as Master Gunner for B 4/37, and A 2/70. I retired 1997, and have since continued to work closely with the US Army as a Military Schools Instructor, as a Contractor repairing weapon systems and other Military equipment. My wife Carol and I have two grown children, Christina and Travis, several cats, a couple of horses, a pond full of fish, and lots of projects to keep us busy. Now I am running the Quality Control Program for a firm in Junction City Kansas.

Well hello there Richard Nichols! This is the former PFC Kevin McGurk; you were my first TC in the Army (B Trp 1/11ACR). I was surprised to see your pic and recognize the name/face even if it has been 32 years! I read your story and it seems as if luck shit on the both of us. Hoping you and yours are doing well. I'm going to post photos I have from that part of my career, you are in at least one of them. Allons!
