I was a wheel and track mechanic (63H20). I received an injury while working on a deuce and half transmission. I was not compensated for the injury at that time or at discharge. The tranny fell on my legs severely bruising them but was not X rayed for broken bones. But I have had problems with my knees since then and have filed for compensation and fighting the V A since 1980. I am looking for anyone who may have served with me at that time and may remember that incident. there was a man from Knoxville, I think his name was Edwards but I cannot remember his first name. The accident happened 07/74, my helper at the time was a Stacie Gillepie. My Platoon Sgt was Sgt Abercrombie. If anyone knows or can remember anything about that incident, please contact me at my email address: js1118@charter.net Thank You for your help and service to our country!

Brad Sweeney was B Co. commander- a fine leader and the best map guy I ever saw. We were CCB back then, commanded by Col. Murdoch. I took a break from the army for some college and reenlisted to stay for a total of 32 years, retiring in 1987 to Georgia. My time as a Spearheader was wonderful and of all the unity in which I served, my cap is adorned with the 3d AD patch!

What I need is those three days; they are not listed on the 3rd AD time-line, nor does the Pentagon have any info although my POC at the Pentagon has declasified the event so I can write about it. My web site is www.booksbytspessini.com. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. I was a 31 juliet working in the Commcenter at Drake/Edwards Kasrne when the presidential orders came across our TTYs. I remember a comment made by one of the guys in my unit when they returned, "I knew it wasn't an exercise when the armorer issued out live ammo and hand grenades."
