Hi I was with the 8th from early 69 tom Apr 71.
Del, are you a redhead and color blind? I think I remember you.
Initially I was with A Co, A11 then S3 of B1, and finally as TngOff at Group
Mickey Riggs had CoA, then Korchek. I just found out the Rock (aka Potato, aka Silver Throat) passed away in 2010 at 81. Tough dude. Riggs is 78 and lives in KY (?)
Felder was the Grp Cdr and then George Dexter came in.
MAJ Rice was the Grp S3, I ran into him much later when he was CGSC Secretary (ala Chief of Staff).
Rice hired me as Tng Off and left, Bill Huskey came in from the 46th and I worked for him Good guy.
CSM Childress was around, SGM Cliette was Opn SGM, another great guy. LTC T Owens was the XO. I met him later when he was at Devens.
Somebody mentioned CPT Hampton (BCo). He was my close friend. We lost contact, another one was CPT Stewart who spoke Spanish with a Tennessee accent.
Anybody remember the names of Jump and SCUBA Tm Ldrs 69-71? It would help my memories. How about Joe Procik?
Been retired for 6 yrs now but always thin about SF.
