Service: Cold War | Years: 1984-1985 | Unit: 1/40 Arty | Company, Battery or Troop: A Battery | Other: | Comment: My last name was LaPlante during my enlistment. I was raised by my step dad, Stephen Traupman, and had the option of taking his name at the time I was sworn in. I regretted not doing so, but did take his name in 1995, after a divorce and discovering that LaPlante was not my biological father.
Anyway, I loved my time in the 1/40th. I missed it before I even got settled at Ft Sill.
After 5 million miles over the road, trucking, I look back and realize that hindsight is not 20/20!
It's microscopic.
G-D bless you all.

I lived in the barracks on the base in Hanau, Germany, between 1978-1980, I was so glad to go home and the internet was not invented that I lost all communication with the few people I knew. But Clarence Watson, Jr., was the most popular troop on base and if you can remember him we can go back in time of the good ole days and maybe find some people. Also my best friend name was Sarah she had curly red hair.

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!
