Hey Russell, Ron Macarty here. Good to hear from you. We are corrently working on getting a chapter for the BHRCM started in WA. I am presently the State Pres. At this time we only have 4 members. Due to my location in Port Angeles it has been a bit difficult for me due to lack of exposure and having trouble finding Blackhorse Vets over here. Would love to have you on board and be able to start building this state chapter and getting the exposure and "respect" that the Blackhorse deserves.If you are interested you contact me at email@example.com 360-808-2959
Yep, thought that was you Rusty you old Tread Head! I was stationed at Ft Lewis with the 9th I.D. prior to my tour in the FRG. Sure is a beautiful area up there, close to where I spent my High School years next door, in Oregon. Don't think I could take the cold and wet anymore though.
I'm surprised to hear you say that you haven't seen your brothers in several years. You guys were always pretty close (somebody had to back up Dave)!
Those were the best days I ever had in the Army. Nothing else ever came close! I mean even in the mud at Graff! Speaking of Graff, I remember one night we were down at the club and just about the time a fight was going to break out, there was SGM Alfred (You remember him don't you - big black snake eater SF Ranger type) with several 5 ton trucks outside to take us back to camp! He walked, no, strode would be a better description, right into the middle of the beer hall - blew a whistle so loud my ear drums still hurt from it - and shouted "Black Horse - Outside!". He was quite a character. Most didn't like him for one reason or another but I saw a real soldiers soldier in him and had alot of respect for him.
I'm on a V.A. dissability now (100%) thanks to an earlier enlistment and a tour in Nam.
Are you retired yet? A fisherman? Lots of good fishing up there, and hunting as well.
Great to hear from you Rusty, and if you're talking to Dave sometime in the future, tell him hello for me!
Do you remember me? Your brother David and I used to hang at the E.M. club. We got so plasterd there one night we were laying plans for a raid on the East side to bring back a prisoner or two! We probably would have done it if we could have walked more than three feet before falling over!
I met Dave again several years ago when I was a salesman calling on Johns Mansville where he worked.
Is your nickname Rusty or was that your other brother? If your Rusty then I know we tilted a few at the table with Dave.
Great picks, remember several hours on loading tanks to go to Graff. I also remember the old tower OP A. I remember Casper Wienberger visited the OP while I was up there. great times hope to return some day.
