Stationed from 85-87 Eco 55th Maint BN then 193rd AVN Co. It was my first duty station. Learned a lot from SSG Phillips, SGT Carrion, and SGT Rousseau. Worked in the Motor Pool and being in an aviation we were like the black sheep of the family. Did a lot of traveling to different countries. The best time in my 21 years in the Army.

I miss all of my Army green family. Mad Sly Davis, Fish, Ranger Gant, Chainsaw Schultz, Anker, Jonesy, Paul, Stanley Granger, SGT Aponte, Woods, Cushion, McDaniels, Gonzo, Florez, Evans, Harmon, Chamberlain, Bartlow, Kelsey, PaPa Roach, Heinrich, Jackson, Thornton, Nicula, Huntley, Vaa, Rodrigez and SGT Sanchez and I'm Hegy (Big Heg). I missed a bunch as I'm gettin old.
There's a few of us that keep in touch on FB group. Write me and I'll get you details. I miss you all as if we were feeding on Wurst mit ketchup und kurry at the Yak-Shack yesterday. I don't miss the long cold-cold nights standing in a frozen foxhole rubber-necking all night long at Graph. I miss "Mad Tuesday Parties" and checking out the new gear at the Rod and Gun Club. I miss running PT around the airfield while dawning a gas mask and puking out refer gestated Jäger and Double Wok. Guard Duty always sucked no matter where we pulled it. Roaming, Gate and Ammo Guard....ring a bell? Miss the walks to the Chow Hall and checking out an outdated movie at the theater. What I miss more than anything is the guys that are reading this. I hope you all are healthy and have thriving lives with beautiful wives. Cadillacs and lots of ass. Remember, you can't hack it...you better pack it! Duty First you Die Hard Grunts....Huahhh

Getting back to "life" after recent heart attack,and doing just ok, I look back at some of these messages and realize just how great it is to be alive and being part of a group of men,(and women) who served with honor and distinction soooo many years ago. For me, 1963-66 with C Co.144th Sig. Bn...here and in Crailsheim. Ended my terms in Vietnam. I've been here before, this site, and continue to enjoy looking back.
First on a train from Chicago to Ft. Leonard Wood to Ft. Gordon to Goeppingen/Crailsheim to Pleiku, VN with Radio Relay HHQ/13th Sig. Bn. I miss many whom I've had the esteem pleasure of seeing later in life and those who I've learned to love and respect and are no longer with us on this little speck of dirt in the Universe. To the creators of this site, to the people who care enough to say hello on this site, to our young Military today---God Bless!!
