I had transferred over from D CO, 4/32 Armor after deactivation. I was one of the last A Company 2/32 Armor soldiers prior to deactivation. Captain Benton, thanks for sending me the German Marksman rope I left there without. Because the paperwork was lost, I could not use it. But it's a keepsake, thank you. Best wishes to everyone I served with during my tenure from 1991 to 1992. Sgt "Sal" the supply guy! And Top, that going away plaque with the replica of a .45 Colt? I was pulled out of line in the airport and almost strip searched before they realized it really was a replica! Thanks guys, best of luck to all Spearheaders! One hell of a ride!! Outlaws!

Served as Supply Sergeant for Delta Company up until deactivation. Transferred across post to A CO, 2/32 ARMOR BN for a short period before we got notification for yet another deactivation! Got orders for 10th Mountain Division, 3 days prior to shipping out, branch called. Someone (NCOIC I had served with in the 25th Inf. Div.) pulled strings and had my orders changed to report to DLIFLC (Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center) in Monterey, California. Thought I'd like it. The politics here were a bit too much for me, tried to transfer back to FORSCOM unit, but guess what? Fort Ord was at the time deactivating. Branch also said I was stuck! Nice? OK for the family, but it felt like I was put out to pasture. And the Russian civilians? Don't get me started! Anyway, retired now in Monterey. Dealing with the rolling blackouts, high housing prices and a bunch of phony people. Life is good. Always remembered soldiers from D Company, always a "prost" for our fallen, but not forgotten. You guys were the greatest and I as I look back on it, I am honored to have served with a great unit. My hat is off to all who have serve on the "Rock". VICTORY OR DEATH Red Lions!! Oh, and Top (Parshall), thanks for recruiting Sgt. Heard, the guy is an inspiration! lol

I can remember the bad treatment we received by our OIC. He was in the S-4 shop and thought he was GOD. What a loser. He would make an enlisted man get his chow at TAA Camelot. I can remember how having to get his chow was such a treat. The guys would get his food when the chow hall opened along with their own food. They would set his food out in the open and eat theirs very slowly while shooting the bull with anyone and everyone. After about an hour or more old Mr. perfect would get his chow. Guess what loser, you were not a very good officer and not too many people respected or liked you.

FYI. I was one of the last members of the HHC DISCOM, as well as the 3AD. My title was the Division's Property Book Officer (CW3). I officially closed out, and zero balanced the 3AD's property records. In reviewing the 3AD Web site, I noticed most of the command and staff members names missing. I will be glad to contribute with updating most of the members names that are currently missing from the Web site. Please contact me at the E-mail address listed.

Hi folks….

My dad was a tank commander (O-3)with the 3rd Armored Division (Spearhead)during WWII.

His name is Charles A. Henderson and he is now 84 years old and living in Marina, California.

We got him on the internet: RAMRODAFRC@aol.com – I have encouraged him to check out your fine web site. He is a walking wealth of information and memories of this era and is well worth contacting.

Thanx for a great site.

This is for everyone who visits here, and anyone else you know who might be interested. I've started a message forum at the following URL:

http://pub20.ezboard.com/fmenofwarfrm1

It's there for vets like myself to swap stories, look for friends and just "talk shop" or whatever. The name of the forum is the Tiger's Den, but anyone is welcome to come and post, any time.

It hasn't gotten many visitors yet, and I hope whoever sees this will spread the word.

Guys, I'm saddened to announce the death of one of our younger Spearhead brethern. Washington DC Metro Transit Police Officer Marlon Morales was killed in the line of duty on June 11 2001. Marlon was a member of 3rd Armored Division from 1989-1991. He worked in the 1st Bde S-1 section. I'm proud to say he was a friend of mine, and I lived next door to him in the barracks. He's survived by a wife and three kids. Reqiuem en Paz Marlon. Spearhead.

 

Anyone who would like to know more details about his tragic death can go to: www.washingtonpost.com/wp-kyn/articles/A25935-2001Jun20.html

…saw the posting from a former "sapper"from the 36th Eng. Bn. appreciated the sentiments expressed and thought I'd pass along a little poem I read long ago…"The Engineers have hairy ears. they live in caves and ditches, they bang their jocks on craggy rocks,those rugged sonsabitches"

Was also stationed with 2/32 AR from 1981-1985. Visited the "Rock" after retirement in '92 when was still operational. Visited again in Dec.2000. Was saddened by the way the Rock looked now after remembering the friends and good times at the Rock, The Welcome Inn and other towns and villages in the area.

I am searching for war buddies of my father-1st Lt. R. D Scillian;1st Army;3rd Armored Div.;7th Corp. Please excuse my illiteracy on the above particulars. My father is still alive and sharp as a tack. I hope to connect with someone he served with and find out about any reunions that would pertain to his service. Thanks and time is a-wasting.

Just came across your web site. My father was a member of one of the 3rd AD infantry units during WWII. I'll have to dig into Dad's old war chest and do some research in order to find out which unit he was assigned to. He didn't talk much about the war but I do recall some of his stories. My father was Henry L. Hibbs Jr. He was from West (By God!) Virginia born May 1920. His friends would have called him Larry, Hank, or Stump (Dad was only 5'4" on a good day!). Anyway, I hope I found the appropriate place to come to for info concerning the 3rd AD. Thanks! Larry Hibbs

Blood & Guts! I served as platoon leader & executive officer for the Alphagators from Feb 79 through Jun 81; then as battalion maintenance officer from Jun 81 until my departure in Feb 82. An soldier always remembers his 1st unit and 1-48 Inf was mine. I look back on those days with many a fond memory and few regrets. It was a great unit and the soldiers and officers were top rate.

Former commander of Company D, 2/36 Infantry "Rangers" from June 1985 – June 1986. The "Delta Demons" were the finest infantrymen in the battalion. Its First Sergeant was 1SG Leon Fludd. After serving as Giessen MILCOM's Deputy DPCA and subsequently as Asst. S-3 Air of 2/36, I assumed command of D Company from CPT Parsons. CPT Parsons (circa, 1983-1985) commanded the company first as A Company, 2/22 Infantry ("Triple Deuce"), through its reorganization to the H-series TOE and its redesignation as D-2/36. I was succeeded in command by CPT Bradshaw in June 1986.

The dedication of the 3d Armored Division Monument is scheduled for July 4th at 1 PM at Freedom Foundation Park in Valley Forge PA. General Wallace H. Nutting who commanded the 3d Armored Division in the late 70's is scheduled to be the speaker. It would be a great thing to attend if you are able to. Our 1st annual reunion is scheduled for July 25 – 28 in Carlise PA. We have veterans from all era's registered to attend. It should be a great time of interaction with guys from WWII, the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and Desert Storm there. There is still time to register. If you need information about the monument dedication or the reunion, contact me at couline@ptd.net

I just got my computer back on line. Greetings to all those who attended the G-town reunion in San Antonio last March. I can't wait for the next one. Again, a big thanks to Johnny Hudson for a great time. The only glitch was that Merle Phillips couldn't make it. The guy is a real piece of work.

Want to say hello to all the Col. Diggin' Higgins people out there. Especially Steve Kuhn who happened to know him personally. Am looking for SGM Zettlemoyer from 4-8 Cav days when he was my Platoon Sergeant.(1,000 point gunnery) Would like to hear from anybody that served in HHC 4-8 Cav from 86-92. Scouts Out!!!!! Can't forget all the good times we had down at the "Blue Night" rock club. Those were the good old days. I love reading about all the history involved with the division. I am proud to have been part of it. Take care everybody.

I have many fond memories of my service in the army with all the friends now so long ago remembered. I shall never forget my very special comrades in arms Don Jolliffe and harry Pettingill. We toured Europe In Pettingill's Mercedes which he bought in Europenear the Altstadt, Roemer. It was a most special time with very special people. God bless you one and all for the cherished moments with you that I relive forever more in my mind: Misery, Hill Horrible Grafenwoer, nights in the rain, Beetle Bailey's hate for me, weekend passes to the great cities of Europe, some still in ruins,the green, green hills of Saxony and Hesse, my love -hate relationship with Germany whose language I taught most of my life at Beverly High School in Mass. near Boston, the Mahleresque sound of the cuckoo in Bad Vilbel, the comraderie of close living quarters never again to be duplicated, and the soaring days of youth. All but a distant memory now sadly, faded and missed. Morituri te salutamus!

Stationed at Bamberg Germany in Headquartes Company from approx Dec 1971 through approx June/July 1974 for 31 months. Also would like to find an old Army buddy of mine stationed there with me, but only in one of the line companies: A,B or C company. His name was Tom Johnson, nickname of TJ. He said he was out of home state of Texas. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This was written from an UK perspective. I've heard it a billion times, but a few weeks ago it seemed fitting for Memorial Day.

Born in 58

(B. Dickinson/ J. Gers)

Born in a mining town in '58. When black and white TV was up to date. And men where still around. Who fought for freedom. Stood their ground and died. That I could be alive and see the damage, that we've managed since. In this septed isle. Is nothing sacred. Just a one square mile.

Justice and Liberty. You can buy what you don't get free. In a world of steel and glass. We bury our past.

On and On. We slept till dawn. When we awoke, we hardly spoke.

My grandfather taught me how to fight. Old fashioned stuff like wrong and right. But all around I see his morals buried in a mess Of money troubles, Born in a mining town in '58. When black and white TV was up to date. And men where still around. Who fought for freedom, stood their ground and died.

Justice and Liberty. You can buy what you don't get free. In a world of steel and glass. We bury our past.

On and On. We slept till dawn. When we awoke, it was, all the same.

How things change! I was with 3AD, specifically 23rd Engineers for almost a decade. I tell people I was raised in Nebraska, but I grew up in the Army. Now I'm a city council member & an officer in our local American Legion Post. About a month ago I drove to Fort Rucker, Al, from Belle Plaine, MN. There I picked up a retired UH-1H Huey for display at our Veterans Memorial Park. We're currently restoring it (minus engine) for display. If there are any Spearhead Vets in the area, I'd like to invite you to our dedication. It will probably be sometime in September. E-mail me your address' & i'll keep yu posted. Had a lot of good times and bad & saw a bunch of Bravo Sierra while in, but I'm still quite proud to have served with the best. SPEARHEAD !!!

I found your site by doing a search for the div. I was curious about your div. involvment in the Battle of the Bulge after reading "STERPIGNY AND CHERAIN,BELGIUM – January 1945, By S/Sgt Jim Cullen 2nd Squad, 1st Platoon, "E"Company, 36th Armored Infantry. In the article excerpts are taken from the After Action Reports produced by Haynes Dugan on the History of the 36th Armored Infantry Regt. 3rd Armored Division. Following each excerpt is S/Sgt. Cullen's recollection of the action of the 2nd Squad, 1st Platoon, "E" Company, 36th Armored Infantry during each time period. S/Sgt. Cullen's article was of great interest to me. My father M/Sgt. Howard Anthony [KIA 1-16-45] was w/ the 83rd's 330 Inf @ Stirpigny with your Div. This is the first time I have been able to find out anything about Stirpigny. I thought I had misunderstood the name because nobody knew of it and I couldn't find it on any maps. I never knew my father [I was 2 yrs old when he died] and have pretty much given up the hope of ever finding anyone who actually knew him. I would, however, greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who can tell me about this battle, where I can learn anything about Stirpigny, or anything else regarding the 83rd's involvment w/ your div. during Dec/Jan of 45. I can be reached @ P.O. Box 653, Lewes, DE 19958 or by e-mail at either hra@dmv.com or richardanthony@justice.com In advance, thank you for taking the time to read this & thank you for what you did during WW II.

Hi Spearheaders, I got this one from a chat friend, but got to it too late to post for Memorial Day, and I hope that all of out vet friends and families enjoy it. Thanks for a great site to Kevin and the staff and I will be checking thru from time to time as my schedule permits. Take Care Everyone, and GOD Bless !!!! S P E A R H E A D !!!!!!!!!!!!Remember them this Memorial Day May 28th

 

 

THE THINGS THEY CARRIED:

 

They carried P-38 can openers and heat tabs, watches and dog tags, insect repellent, gum, cigarettes, Zippo lighters, salt tablets, compress bandages, ponchos, Kool-Aid, two or three canteens of water, iodine tablets, sterno, LRRP- rations, and C-rations stuffed in socks. They carried standard fatigues, jungle boots, bush hats, flak jackets, and steel pots. They carried the M-16 assault rifle. They carried trip flares and Claymore mines, machine guns, the M-70 grenade launcher, M-14's, CAR-15's, Stoners, Swedish K's, 66mm Laws, shotguns, .45 caliber pistols, silencers, the sound of bullets, rockets, and choppers, and sometimes the sound of silence. They carried C-4 plastic explosives, an assortment of hand grenades, PRC-25 radios, knives and machetes. Some carried napalm, CBU's, and large bombs; some risked their lives to rescue others. Some escaped the fear, but dealt with the death and damage. Some made very hard decisions, and some just tried to survive. They carried malaria, dysentery, ringworms, and leaches. They carried the land itself as it hardened on their boots. They carried stationery, pencils, and pictures of their loved ones – real and imagined. They carried love for people in the real world, and love for one another. And sometimes they disguised that love: "Don't mean nothin'!" They carried memories! For the most part, they carried themselves with poise and a kind of dignity. Now and then, there were times when panic set in, and people squealed, or wanted to, but couldn't; when they twitched and made moaning sounds and covered their heads and said "Dear God", and hugged the earth and fired their weapons blindly, and cringed and begged for the noise to stop, and went wild and made stupid promises to themselves and God and their parents, hoping not to die. They carried the traditions of the United States military, and memories and images of those who served before them. They carried grief, terror, longing, and their reputations. They carried the soldier's greatest fear: the embarrassment of dishonor. They crawled into tunnels, walked point, and advanced under fire, so as not to die of embarrassment. They were afraid of dying, but too afraid to show it. They carried the emotional baggage of men and women who might die at any moment. They carried the weight of the world, and the weight of every free citizen of America.

Wishing to all veterans a Happy Memorial Day!!, I was the Brigade Chaplain Assistant of the 1st Brigade HHC,3rd Armored Division during the Gulf War. My chaplain was Brigade Chaplain Maj. N. Robinson (By the way they need to correct the ruster on the 1st Brigade, 3AD:they have Chaplain Robinson as a CPT instead of MAJ). I would like to say hello to my fellow spearhead veterans and also to my units chaplains and chaplain assistants. Email me if any of you experiencing a what they called Gulf War Syndrome.

Served proudly for 2 1/2 years. Most notably under the direction of 1SG John Green, a 3 tour Vietman veteran who inspired me more than anybody else to "Be all that I could be" as the old motto went, through example. He was tough but fair. Primarily trained in live fire FTXs at Graffenwoer and AF guard duty.

“And once you’re gone, you can never go back….” -Neil Young

I was at the ‘Rock’ last year; it was a short trip of about twenty minutes in and out to take a quick look and a few pictures courtesy of a sympathetic security guard. This time it was different. Although I had official permission for a one-day visit, in reality I made it into two days. I explored every nook and cranny that I could get access to. Some things I could remember as clearly as if it was yesterday and others were a little bit more hazy because they had been constructed after my time (1975-78). I went back this time to seek out the ghosts of my youth. To exorcise some of those demons that have inhabited my dreams and to shake them loose. I had no idea really what was left, but I pictured things pretty much the same as I had left them, plus or minus twenty some odd years ago. The trees would be larger and the weeds would be higher than last year but otherwise it would be the same as it always was….

How wrong I was. With the exception of the first row of barracks (that is to say the ‘old’ 3/36 down to the ‘old’ 2/36) everything else behind that row was either in a partial state of demolishment or stripped of all useful bits and pieces and left to whatever fate is left for it. And when I say stripped, I mean stripped bare. Bits and pieces of whatever that could not be reused are left where the fell. Gapping holes show where electrical boxes once were once mounted. The windows go first; after all they are the newest parts and perhaps fetch a few more marks on the resale market because of their relative newness. The eastern European’s are big buyers of the flotsam of used building parts. Then the plumbing fixtures, including for some really unknown bizarre reason the toilet stalls. I can’t picture a big market for used toilet stalls but who knows. And lastly all the electrical stuff, which entails pulling the wiring from the walls and ripping all the fixtures from the ceilings.

I really can’t say how ‘Uncle’ left the place because I wasn’t there. What he left or how much was stripped when the US locked the gate for the last time I can only guess. But, I can imagine it was like most things in the green machine. Clean the billets up for the new tenets. Leave them the way you found them. I found keys in some of the doors of barracks that were open, not the front doors mind you, but, the indivdual doors of the barracks rooms themselves. Sometimes one key and other times sets of four or more keys. These sets of keys tell me that these small, empty rooms were once the home up to four GI’s. Four lockers, two sets of ‘bunk’ beds and one desk with chair. Not really a lot of room but that was before the concept of ‘personal space’ had been thought of.

I took a cab from my hotel in Butzbach and when I told the driver I wanted to go to Ayers Kaserne he smiled. It had been a few years since anyone had asked to go there, let alone an American and the smile was for things past. Because when you think about it, the cab drivers probably had more contact with the GI’s than anyone else. Good and bad. Those wonderful payday Friday nights when you had money to burn and a thirst to quench. Standing out at the taxi stand, waiting you’re turn for the ride into Butzbach and a quick drink before the train to Frankfurt. And those returns to the ‘Rock’, where one was lucky enough to get a cab (or depending on your condition even FIND one) and didn’t mind splitting the fare with strangers if it meant that you would be soon back to your barracks and bed.

I got out of the cab at the main gate like I had so many times before. The UP shack was as it always was. I was pretty sure I wouldn’t have to have a strip search this time. It was a well-known fact when I was on the ‘Rock’ that the UP’s (Unit Police) were in the Dope business, big time. If they found dope on you they may or may not turn you in but the dope always disappeared. I can recall one fellow that came from the UP’s to our CSC’s AT section. On his way out; chapter something or other. He was one of the most ‘strac’ individuals I had ever seen and the biggest junkie as well. That was the ‘Rock’ though, you came in a cherry and either walked out or were carried.

The guard had me sign in and that was that. I was on my own. I went up the main road to Battalion Headquarters (3/36) because that was the first place and the last place I was when I was on the ‘Rock’. The driver from brigade picked me up there for the trip to Rhine Mien and the trip home so I figured it was fitting for me to begin there. The doors are gone and the widows too of course. The rooms are bare of all things Army. There are no signs that this was any kind of headquarters. A black pool of water lies dried in front of the radiators. They burst probably the first winter after the ‘Rock’ was closed. I later found out that the entire ‘heating’ plant ended up in Poland, but nobody knows how. I walked further up the road to Brigade Headquarters to check it out because during my entire time on the ‘Rock’ I had never been inside. Mere mortals and enlisted just did not walk into Brigade HQ without a valid reason and I never had one.

It too had been stripped and bits of the ceiling tiles crunched under my feet as I walked through the building on the carpeted floors stained now with the winters of days past. It was a breezy day and the wind kinda found its own way in and out of the building making noises while it passed through. I looked out the front and noticed the flagpole had been cut down, in fact removed from the base it had stood for all those years. Gone was the brass ball from the top (an LT had got me with a question during guard parade for the super numerary; “What is a truck?” It turns out that is what the ball at the top of the flagpole is called and legend has it that inside is a .45 round for the guy who burns the colors, you fill in the blanks) and the two flanking pieces that prevented the flag from ever touching foreign soil. Must be a heavy re-sale market for used flagpoles somewhere.

I made my way out to the back and to the PX. Damn, that was the place. Everything that you could possible want was there. Looking back though it came as no surprise that we all dressed the same way off duty; we all bought our stuff from the same place. Just about everyone I served with (Enlisted) had to leave Germany with a stereo set up. The bigger the better, quad, reel to reel and floor speakers. It was battle of the bands sometimes in the billets. Rock vs. Soul vs. Country Western all at once. As I walked through in what was left of the PX it was hard to remember what went where. The support columns for the building still had the mirrors pasted all around its circumference as if to give even more space. Everything here too had been stripped if it had any value. The beauty shop was empty and dark as I made my way to what was the barbershop. I remember the lunchtime haircuts the most. Those times I was ‘advised’ to get a cut during morning formation. I really dreaded the older German barbers at lunch time they always had beer breath and were a little ‘shaky’ when using the straight razors on the back of your neck. It’s all gone now. If you had never been there when it was running, well, you wouldn’t have a clue what is once was. The bookstore’s glass doors were shattered. One of my section Sgt’s wife’s worked there. It made buying certain ‘adult’ reading materials an exercise in creative speech making; the old ‘ah yes the really good articles’ lie. The snack bar was empty. Just counters and that was it. The phrase “I’ll buy, you fly” echoed in my brain as I recalled those snack bar runs from the motor pool and from the billets. The only place in a ten square mile area to get a decent grilled cheese sandwich. I even heard that it became a Burger King in the ‘80’s. The mini market was in the same building. The memories came thudding back with every step. Ration cards; clipped to buy individual packs of smokes. Buying odds and ends to help spice up the dull C Ration diets when going to the field for weeks on end, buying cleaning supplies and shoe polish.

I walked out the rear of the snack bar and checked the two billets to the rear. In my time I believed they housed D-122 Maint. and the 503rd MP Company. As stated before they had been stripped, even the paneling from the day rooms. I could never figure out why they were called that, nobody could ever go in them during the day. The murals that we painted by some unknown GI artist were once more visible to the Germans who had stripped the paneling. What did they think when they saw them? I was really starting to feel like some sort of archeologist who was exploring the ruins of some lost civilization. But I knew what went into the murals because every unit had an ‘artist’ who did one. It was a thing called unit pride that motivated them to do it.

I next went and checked out the gym. The fine parquet floors rolled in half waves, wood swelled from the leaking roof. I remember working out there a few times. There seemed to be a never-ending basket ball game with the ‘shirts’ against the ‘skins’. The hoops are gone now. It really seemed a shame to let the floor go to pot like that. But governments rarely care about little things like what to do with things like old Army bases, they would rather they just rot away.

The post theater was my next stop. Damn I had some really good times there. It was a place to escape for a while. To get lost in a movie. Of course, it was hard to quietly sit with so many guys without some noise or guys trying to shout to the actors on screen about hidden dangers, “Man, look out she’s got a gun” as if the actors could hear them. Most of the rows of seats are still there, but the screen has been torn down and nothing remains of the snack bar or projection booth. I remember the battalion meetings there when the COL would walk down the aisles while we stood at attention. “SEATS” and the briefing or de-briefing would begin. I also remember seeing the movie ‘Roots’ as a battalion for ‘race relations’ and wondering why all the black guys were so pissed off after. Nothing changed for me because of watching a movie, hell; my people came over in 1918! The newer movies were always a little late in coming to the ‘Rock’ but never showed to an empty house.

The fire station was in really good shape but still showed signs of party use by the volunteer firemen that now use the billets of the ‘Rock’ for rescue training. Although it looked more like ‘combat in cities’ training to me. Great holes punched through the walls and ditches dug along the sides of buildings where Brigade troops were once housed. The education buildings were all new GI’s had to take ‘head start’ classes are empty. Really empty. The class six store where as an eighteen year old I could buy what I could not in my home state was empty. Ow, how many hangovers did that place cause? I was in the past, but surrounded by the present. Things change after so many years but they are the same in your memories and when you see them again you get overwhelmed by the events that took place so long ago. I remember ‘this and that’ …I can’t forget (nor do I want to). As I walked past the place that I knew as the ‘rod and bottle’ club I remember an E-6 that took me for my first ‘liquid’ lunch. It was allowed the to have two beers for lunch. I say allowed but unknown to us mere private types. And judging from the crowd there quite popular. But like most ‘fun’ things it to disappeared. New commander; new rules. Now it is just an empty building with not even a sign out front to say what it once was.

The ‘newest’ building on the ‘Rock’ was the 2/3 FA billets. It was also the only nearly intact barracks building left. The only things that had been ‘recycled’ were some of the built in wooden wall lockers. It was a building built in the ‘new’ Army style. Two or three man rooms with private shower and toilet. Cable TV and phone connections, built in wall lockers and TA-50 lockers. Hell, if I had these kinds of accommodations I never would have left! I lived out of a TA-50 wall locker with three shelves for the first nine months I was on the ‘Rock’ until a proper metal one could be ‘requisitioned’. We lived in four man rooms that held five but seemed like they should’ve been two man rooms. The floors still had that GI shine and it smelled like well, GI. It’s a smell that says soap and shoe polish. The BOQ’s on the other hand smelled completely different, kinda like cologne and shampoo. OD dust bunnies were on the floors in the rooms and it seemed as if everyone had just left. This place had been locked up tight and even the smells couldn’t get out. Maybe they will use this building for something, I hope so. Maybe that’s what is wrong, this whole place looks like they will strip it down and either bulldoze it or just let it rot away. And that seems wrong to me. I guess because it was such a major part of my life that I want it to remain as it was, constant, to serve as a reminder to me that I was there, that what happened did happen and not just to myself but to a lot of guys just like me. Collective experience.

The next stop was the Library /Rec center. The library was a pretty quiet place to go in that place of noise. It seemed as if I was the only one in my whole company who even knew it existed. It was as a result an excellent place to ‘ghost’. Funny it doesn’t even seem larger now empty, but, nor does give any idea what it was. The reality was the Rec Center was a first stop for all ‘cruits’ as in Recruit (or the more impersonal FNG). It was where the bus from the replacement depot left us before we found out where and which unit would get us. I remember seeing boots hanging from the power lines and wondering if it was a prank, not realizing that it was a sign of closure. Another short timer gone home. Now it is just another empty building.

What I knew as 2/36 Inf and 2/32 ARMOR were pretty much the same shape as the other buildings, the exception was that the row facing the main road was ‘intact’ window wise but basically stripped inside, they buildings facing the parade field had had their windows removed. All the buildings had the same feature on the inside. Namely, the stairwells had been painted over and over by so much paint that all I could think of was the old Army saying “if it don’t move paint it; if it does move salute it”. They all were thick with coats of paint. And they were all the same in that Army way of standardization so that they could only be the same. Only the people made them different. The messhalls had been stripped bare of any or all things deemed worthwhile. I saw one dishwashing machine that looked as if it simply would not be removed and what was left was still bolted to the floor and wall at an angle that suggested brute force was not enough to convince it to leave. Its funny about the buildings that still had windows, once inside the only real difference was the double pane windows. The good old inefficient steam radiators where still there. I remember being extremely lucky to get more than just ‘warm’ in my third floor room in the winter. I thought that the big renovation program in the ‘80’s had done more to the buildings than just the windows and Messhall roofs. It’s surprising the linoleum floors have survived so many years of buffing and stripping, and in the many barracks I visited many still had that same Johnson Wax shine on the floors.

The only barracks I couldn’t get into was my old HHC and my own CSC 3/36. They were locked up tight and from looking in the window they looked untouched. The other buildings in the old 3/36 however have suffered the same fate as most of the rest of the ‘Rock’; neglect kills, just not as quickly as demolition. The bowling alley is a refugee clothing collection point and the EM club is falling apart on one side from rot. The chapel is locked but otherwise untouched, perhaps it was just me but maybe considering Germany’s not to distant past a house of worship is better left alone.

I’ll send what pictures I have. Use what you want and save the others for some night when you want to take a walk down memory lane. You may not recognize some places in the pictures but others you cant forget. Perhaps you will meet a ghost of your own creation, perhaps not. I’m glad I went; I don’t think I would go back though. To see it as anything less than it was or what it is now is not very easy and the purity of memories does not have much to do with reality, so I think I’ve said goodbye for the last time….

Glad I'm still around. I'm now 93. I was older than my company commander and my general. I went in under Bradley, then was under the command of General Rose. I had a lot of respect for General Rose. He was the only one who had any guts. There is a hospital (in Nebraska?) named after him.

I WAS ATTACHED TO BRAVO BTRY 2/82FA ALONG WITH OTHER 8 SOLDIERS BY THE END OF JAN 1991,WE ALL CAME FROM 3RD ID (MARNE DIV) 5/41 FA OUT F SCHWIEFURT . WE MANNED THE 8TH GUN WHICH GAVE US PROBLEMS ALL THE TIME. ONCE WE RETURN BACK TO RHEI MEAN AIRPORT AS SOON AS WE GOT OFF THE PLANE A 3ID SPECIALIST INSTRUCTED US TO GET ON THAT VEHICLE IN ROUTE TO SCHWIENFURT.

THE GREATES FEELING WAS WHEN WE GOT ON THAT PAN AM AIRPLANE AND LIFTED IN TO THE SKY..WE ALL WANTED TO CRY AN WE BIT OUR LIPS HARD ENOUGH NOT TO SHOW OUR INTERNAL EMOTIONS.. BUT DID SEE THE BEUTIFUL AIRLINE ATTEDANTS WEEP FOR OUR HAPPINESS.

ONCE I GOT OF THE AIRPLANE I PERSONALLY HAND SHAKE THE PILOT AND THANKING HIM IN BEHALF OF EVERYONE FOR A SAFE RETURN HOME.

I served with the 16th Signal Battalion stationed at Schloss Kaserne, Butzbach from August 1961 through August 1962. The 16th SB was rapidly redeployed from Ft Huachuca, AZ to Germany in August 1961 in response to the "second Berlin crisis" I am proud to have served with a unit indirectly associated with the 3AD.

Greetings fellow Spearheader's!

This site is allways worth a visit, brings back all those memories! Cold War, Border Patrol in Fulda with CPT Schmalzel, (OP Alpha is a Museum) Graff, Sleeth, NORM, Berry and all the other`s, we cannot ever forget what we did and why we did it! My best wishes go out to all the Spearheaders who never returned from the Battle Field, Graff, Hoenfels or the Gulf. Just felt like saying that.

Warm Regards,

Steven E. Kuhn

I received this Flag's Prayer from an old chat friend, and thought it fitting to post here. Thank You, Kevin and Staff, for a terrific site. I AM THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

I am the flag of the United States of America. My name is Old Glory. I fly atop the world's tallest buildings. I stand watch in America's halls of justice. I fly majestically over institutions of learning. I stand guard with power in the world. Look up and see me.

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice. I stand for freedom. I am confident. I am arrogant. I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners, my head is a little higher, my colors a little truer.

I bow to no one! I am recognized all over the world. I am worshipped – I am saluted. I am loved – I am revered. I am respected – and I am feared.

I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox. I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy, Guam.

Okinawa,Korea and KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me, I was there. I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired, but my soldiers cheered me And I was proud. I have been burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free. It does not hurt, for I am invincible.

I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of my country. And when it's by those whom I've served in battle – it hurts. But I shall overcome – for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon. I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours. But my finest hours are yet to come.

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield, When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier, Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent at the grave of their fallen son or daughter, I am proud.

MY NAME IS OLD GLORY LONG MAY I WAVE. DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN LONG MAY I WAVE (author not mentioned)

Hello

Veterans of the 5th Cavalry & the 8th Cavalry new unit webpages have been added for your battalions. I am Kevin Colson & I will be the website manager for these website until a veteran from the 5th & 8th Cav steps forward to assume the duties. If you are interested please let me know. You will need to have a copy of Front Page 2000, about 20 minutes a day & a love for the 5th & 8th Cav. The active members of the Assocaition Web Team will be glad to help you as you get up to speed. I look forward to updating your website. I have added an email contact list to each of the battalion pages.

Hi!, I hope it's OK for me to leave a message here. I am writing a book about the men who fought in the battle for Heurtgen Forest where my husband was killed in November 1944, and their widows, wives and families, and would like to contact anyone who would like to share their stories. This is to be a 'people' book and a more detailed outline will be sent to anyone who is interested and emails me at paddas@hotmail.com. Sincerely, Padda (Spaans)

The store is going to soon place an order for embroidered items. If any of you guys wants to order a coat or something along those lines with the embroidery work on it, e-mail me. I will be placing the order May 25th and its a lot cheaper to get special orders with a larger order.

I continue to be amazed at how fast this guest book grows. It is obvious that most of us have positive memories with 3AD, and time does serve to make them better as well. My tour with Bravo remains a positive force, years later and a lifetime away. Any of you out there? I'd like to hear from you.

Very proud to have served in the best Division. Was sorry to see the division deactivated. This web site has a lot of information in it. I myself have over a hundred photographs, taken during Desert Storm. Also anyone having any additional information regarding unit awards, if any, earned by the 23 Engineer Battalion, specifically, E Company, drop me an e-mail. I know I worked with DISCOM, but not sure who else. From time to time I run into other soldiers who served in 3AD. As a matter of fact one I ran into today told me about the web site. There are also friends of mine in my area who servedwith 3AD.

I am not sure if anyone looking at this website would be interested, but I am going to tell you about my father's time in WW II, anyway. Private Ova W. Ratliff was inducted at age 34, on March 30, 1944. He trained to be an infantry replacement soldier at Camp Fannin near Tyler, Texas. At age 35 he was killed in the battle of Hurtgen Forest in Germany on November 14,1944. He wrote his last letter home in the evening, on November 7, 1944. In it he said, "I have not been in action yet, but we are Close Now, I can hear the guns Now". At the most, he was only in battle one week. I took all of the 84 letters that he wrote home and put them in a book, just as they were written. I used those words written by him in his last letter to name the book, "I Can Hear The Guns Now". Please look at the book's website: WWW.ICANHEARTHEGUNSNOW.COM for more information about him, me, and how to order the book. I am donating $2.00 from the sale of each book to The National World War II Memeorial in Washington, D.C. Respectfully yours, Thomas G. Ratliff

i went to ray barracks last monday (30 may 2001)while on leave from the balkans. most of the 1/32 area is mothballed. the bde hq is now in the old 3/32 building at the end of the drill field. not a tank or howitzer in sight. kind of sad. there are a bunch of new red brick buildings where the 2/27 motor park was. a local national friend of mine said there are only about 300 on the kaserne (if i understood his german). hooah chris tilley

Greetings to all the soldiers I served with in Alpha Company, 3/33 in 1985-85. I would love to hear from any of you. I was in 3rd platoon with Sfc Lenzy, Treash, Riley, Loving….the list could go on. Hope all is well with the old "Pickles".

Stationed at Ray Barracks, Friedberg, just up the hill from Elvis and his tanks. In counter-mortar radar section, lived in Bad Nauheim with wife and daughter. Discovered that if you carry a clipboard of drawings, schematics, and TM's around with you, you could spend cold days in the snack bar! Oops–now I'm in trouble! Revisited in late 1980's–kaserne still looks the same, but used car lots south of the barracks where beet fields used to be. Progress?

Cheers–Terry in Ft. Lauderdale

I served in Charlie Company 3/32 in 70-71 and with Charlie Company 2/32 75-78. I consider my time with the 32nd to have been a great time. I now live in the Seattle, Washington area and work for the VA as a clinical social worker. When I left the unit in 78, I got my degree in Social work. I remember some saying I would never leave the "Green Machine." Be well and live life large.

I would like to know why there is still a cover-up about SSG Stephens and my best friend PFC Stokes. Why are Todd and Lozada missing from the HHC roster. Todd was Admin. and Lozada was Trans.

Too much crap for Victory or Death don't you think?

The following is from our January Newsletter; 

Editorial note:  it was later determined that HQ26 was hit from the rear by friendly 25mm fire from a unit or vehicle unknown.  SSG Stephens was killed immediately, and PFC Adrian Stokes died a short while later while being evacuated.

No attempt to cover up anything on our end. We tell what we are able to find out. As to guys missing from roster, those rosters are built by you guys filling in the blanks. If you know of anyone missing from rosters, please get us the info.

Hoping to see some of the folks from my service period at Carlisle in July. This could be the start of a fun event; I have attended the 58-60 reunion with the Gelnhausen group twice now, and had a great time with some of the nicest folks. It's a good feeling to be able to look back on that period of your life with others who shared in it, and feel good about having served. No big splendorific celebration, just a fun gathering of old, proud soldiers. You owe it to yourselves and your families to revisit and remenisce, and remember why you served….so you could have what you now have today. Steven Depuy and associates: I hope your efforts are rewarded with a good turnout. Thanks for all your efforts to bring this together. Regards, Phil

Thank Phil, we are looking forward to a great time. I am 80% sure there will be Lischer there for those of you who enjoyed it. 

Steve

Hi Troops, I am still looking to get in contact with anyone from A-Co/2ndPLT that was at Coleman Kaserne from '85-'86. If anyone transitioned to the 3/8CAV or 4/8CAV and knows of anyone from that time frame, please feel free to contact me at my email address. I do hope my buds are safe in their respective homes and families, and would enjoy hearing anything about any of them. God Bless!! (formerly)PFC Larry Flynn "SKUNK" Jones

Nice web sight. Brings back lots of memories, some good, some not so good. Hard to realize it was so long ago, just remember how good it was to return to the good old U.S.A. and home. Will never forget that damn ride home on the USS General Maurice Rose!

Fine site you have and I enjoyed browsing, will return. My war service was during WWII serving in Africa with the 830th Sig.Svc.Co then shipped to England for the invasion, but had a lung collapse and lost my unit and hospital, rehab and repl.depots and assigned to First Sig Center Team detached from 7th Army 6th Corps attached to Second French Corps who had 2 Armd Div moving up through southern France and through the Black Forest into Alsace and crossing the Rhine at Mannheim. We wound up at Munich at the end of hostilities. All are invited to visit my site and would appreciate any comments and suggestions.

just found this site on the web. i had never heard the term "spearhead" until we found an id tag for some affair for my father in law after he passed away a few weeks ago. we took the tag and placed it in his coffin along w/ his legion and vfw hats. i was shocked by the conversation that id tag prompted from men of his generation. we learned more about him and what he went through during his time in europe and now my interest is piqued to search for more. like most from that greatest generation he was a humble quiet man who seldom spoke of or talked about the war. we buried him in the cemetary of the western reserve, a national military cemetary in rittman ohio. on his stone we are going to put the word SPEARHEAD. I don't know whether he would have wanted the notariety, but after we found out what it stood for and explained it to his widow, she was proud to have the term as part of his memory. thanks for letting me share this w/ you and i look forward to learning more about his past through these sites m dominak strongsville, ohio

Looking at the 3-32 webpage. My father was with 3-32 from summer 1974 until summer 1977. He served as the BN S3, BN XO, and unfortunately for about 2 months as the BN CDR when the BN CDR was relieved. His name was MAJ H.W. Healy. I can't remember the original BN CDR when he arrived, but the next CDR (75-76) was LTC Joseph Jordan. The BN CDR who was relieved had been the BDE XO before taking the BN in 1976. The BDE CDR's were COL Carpenter (retired as a BG) and COL deCamp (retired as a MG). COL deCamp had two sons that I know of who entered the army. His oldest, Schuyler commands an armor BN at Ft. Riley and his next son, Phil, will take command of an armor BN at Ft. Stewart this summer. 3-32 armor was the USAREUR tank gunnery champs for 4 consecutive years from 71-74.

Hey, I stated I was inC/1/36 Inf in my last email, but I checked and I was In C/3/36 Infantry on "The Rock", Our barracks were right behind battalion HQ's, near the main gate. During my time the Charlie CO was Captain Grove, our weapons platoon leader and XO was Lt Sparrow, our platoon sergeant was SFC Coke (Short for Cocalidas-spelling). Gary Phillips, Nick Caruso, Gary Benesh, Timothy O'brien(OB, and more characters were in the platoon. Remember our FO Code, Whiskey – Tango – Hotel. Mike G

The Assocaition of 3rd Armored Division Veterans is have a Reunion in July. As of today we have 19 confirmed reservations to attend the reunion. Steve has said many people say thay are coming but until the reservations are received plans can not be finalized.

Please if you are planning to come to the reunion send in the paperwork.

Kevin Iron Dukes

As we plan for the reunion, the more people who register, the more we will be able to do. If 20 people are going to go to Aberdeen, we could do that with a few mini vans. If 50 people want to go, we need to reserve a bus. The problem is that I don't want to reserve a bus and only have 20 wanting to take the trip. If I wait too long to reserve a bus, I may not be able to get one. This is just one example of the situation I am in with planning the reunion. It would be a real help if everyone could get the paperwork in so we have a better idea what we are looking at. 

Reunion Co-ordinator

I was assigned to HHC, 3/32 Armor at Ray Barracks as battalion motor sergeant from 1974 -1976. Would like to hear from personnel who served with the 3/32 Armor from 1974-76. Interested persons may contact MSG Arthur Lopes (Retired) at this email address: helgart@paducah.com.

THIS COMMENT IS TO ASK ANY VETERAN OF THE 3RD ARMORED DIVISION OR ANY PERSON IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH A VETERAN WHO KNOWS A GOOD HUMAN INTEREST STORY PERTAINING TO THE THIRD ARMORED, TELL IT IN THIS SPACE TO GIVE THE DIVISION A HUMAN FACE. THE DIVISION WAS NOT JUST LIFELESS COLLECTION OF TANKS, GUNS AND WAR MACHINE VEHICLES, IT WAS A BREATHING, LIVING, BLEEDING, DYING STRESSED OUT BODY OF SOME 16,000 SOULS DOING WHAT THEY KNEW HAD TO BE DONE. THE DIVISION HAD SOLDIERS FROM ALMOST EVERY STATE IN THE UNION AND FROM ALMOST EVERY WALK OF LIFE. I WILL HAVE TO ADMIT THERE WAS A CRITICAL SHORTAGE OF VERY RICH MEN AND POLITICIAN'S SONS. HERE IS MY OFFERING OF A HUMAN INTEREST STORY. I WAS ONE OF ABOUT 40 MEN WHO WERE SCHEDULED TO TAKE THE FINAL PHYSICAL FOR THE DRAFT ON THE MONDAY AFTER PEARL HARBOR. ONLY ONE MAN FAILED THE PHYSICAL ON THAT DAY WHEN UNCLE SAM REALLY NEEDED MEN. IT WAS A SLIGHTLY BUILT YOUNG FELLOW WHO FAILED AND HE REALLY DIDN.T LOOK LIKE A FIGHTING MAN. HE HAD TEARS OF DISAPOINTMENT IN HIS EYES AND LATER WON ONE OF THE HIGHEST MEDALS FOR BRAVERY THAT THE NAVY BESTOWS. WHAT A MAN LOOKED LIKE WAS NO INDICATION AS TO HOW GOOD HE WOULD BE IN THE WAR. EVERY WAR HAS IT'S STORIES. TELL THE INTERNET SURFERS ONE WHEN THEY CHECK OUT THIS GUESTBOOK.

I've seen lots of comments about the major training areas, but do any of you from 1st Bde remember that place up the hill from the military housing in Butzbach? I think we called it area 44. Spent lots of hours there during alerts and dry fire exercises.

The Davy Crockett: the 3AD infantry’s nuclear mortar/recoilless gun during the DEFCON 3 days of October 1962 (Cuban Crisis). The following is from page 228 of James N. Gibson’s 1996 book, NUCLEAR WEAPONS OF THE UNITED STATES: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY (Atglen, PA: Schiffer Publishing Ltd.) “The Davy Crockett was the third nuclear artillery piece the U.S. Army ever deployed. With this weapon, Army squads could destroy large units of enemy tanks and or infantry. The Davy Crockett was developed to give Army infantry units an effective weapon against large units of Soviet armor. The weapon system, first deployed in late 1961, consisted of a standard projectile (the XM388) and two gun types, the heavy 155mm M-29 and the light 120mm M-28. The longer ranged M-29 was transported to its firing area by either an M-113 armored personnel carrier or a large truck. Once there it was then quickly set up by its three man gun crew. The smaller M-28, however, was both carried and fired from an Army jeep. If the terrain was too tough for the jeep, the M-28 also could be carried by its gun crew for a short distance. Both guns had the same destructive power, however, because both weapons used the same XM388 279mm projectile. . . . While in service, the Davy Crockett warhead was live fired twice. The first time was a weapons effects test on 7 July 1962, code named Little Feller II. The second live fire, Little Feller 1 on 17 July, was a complete test of the Davy Crockett system. Part of the Ivy Flats military exercise, in Little Feller 1 the round was fired from an M-29 Crockett launcher. The warhead traveled a distance of 1.77 miles and then detonated slightly above ground. Twenty-six minutes later a company of men from the 4th Infantry division, and a platoon of tanks, entered the shot zone to complete the maneuvers. Before the Little Feller tests, on 9 June 1962 the Davy Crockett became operational with 7th Army units in West Germany. Following deployment, however, the United States government became concerned about the fact that this weapon, when fielded, was controlled by an Army sergeant. . . . ”

Serving in the Third armor Division was the best and the most exiting time of my life. The soldiers were the best i ever serve with in my army experience. And the leadership was the best in the army at the time i was in 3rd A.D There is no doubt in my mine the training i received save my life in the gulf war. Spearhead for life.

Tomorrow’s entry will cite the reference source for the following: the Davy Crockett’s W-54 warhead (“variable yield fission device”) had a variable yield of from 20 to 250 tons. The weapon system consisted of a standard projectile (the XM388) and two gun types, the heavy 155mm M-29 recoilless (L: 8ft 2in.; Wt: 371 lbs.) and the light 120mm M-28 recoilless (L: 5ft 1in.; Wt: 116 lbs.). The minimum range of both types was 1,000 ft. The maximum range of the M-29 was 2.5 miles; the maximum range of the M-28 was 1.24 miles. (The M-28 “was both carried and fired from an Army jeep. If the terrain was too tough for the jeep, the M-28 also could be carried by its (3 man) gun crew for a short distance.”) Both the M-28 and the M-29 had the same destructive power “because both weapons used the same XM388 279mm projectile.”

We were attached to the water platoon of A Company. SFC Bryd was the Plt Sgt and we were a unit of about 22 personal. The our unit had a SSG Haugen as the commander and a SGT Halgren as the 1SG. We were all put under SFC Bryd for the time we were attached to the water platoon. I don't rememder off hand when exactually we were assigned to them. It was shortly after Desert Shield started. We stayed with the unit from then on thouhout the forward deployment,into Iraq,into kuwait,and also in Safwan. I was one of the personal sent into the city to purify water of the city people and the refugees. All the members of my unit received an ARCOM from Aco 122d MSB. Now my questions are why we are not listed on your roll for reserve units and how am I going to be able to prove Meritorious Unit Awards to my personal cleck. I am have been in the active army for about three years. Before that I was with the 133rd from North Dakota for 13yrs. I wear the 3rd AD patch as my combat Patch. I didn't find out about this site until a major saw my 3rd AD patch and told me about it. I am getting ready to ETS back to the Guard in June, I will still have the same E-mail address. I would appreacate any help and you can send me any questions you have so that we can also list my unit on your roll for the war.

This is outstanding. Great job. However, I was Col Nash's Equal Opportunity Advisor and maintained that position as well as split duties as 1SG with 1SG Robert Keehu during the war. We took on so many slice elements and were moving so fast, it became impossible to maintain control. I retired from the Defense EO Management Institute in 1997 and am currently a GS-11 EO Specialist with the Reserve. Double dipping isn't half bad. I'll never forget the times I had as a Spearheader. When I match what we did compared to all the other units I served in, there's no comparison. 3AD was always 2 schoops of HOOAH. SPEARHEAD!!!

This is a update for a new E-Mail address. I was a cook in co B, 122d ord bn and while in Germany I became a cook for Brig General James K. Polk. Gen Polk was transfered to SHAPE HQ Fontaibleau France. He took his driver and me with him. His driver name was SPC-5 Zeb Lasenby. we both rotated back to the states in mid 1958. I join the Army Reserves in 1974 and retired as SFC in 199l after over 22yr. I hope to hear from some of you who served with me in Geinhausen Germany.

Was disappointed that my idea I submitted in the BN Cmndr's Suggestion Box was never adopted. The idea being that all personell wearing the Spear Head patch be authorized to wear a "ELVIS" tab above the patch.

Must be the division deactivated before "they" could institute it.

While scanning the Guestbook I noticed a listing for CSM DeRosa and was saddened to hear of his passing. As a green troop assigned to my first duty assignment with HHC 2BDE, CSM DeRosa was then the Company's 1SG. He was the Company's 1SG for the first year of my 2 year tour there. Although, like the majority of the soldiers we meet while serving, I never heard of him again until reading the listing in this Guestbook. Looking back, I don’t think I could have had a better first 1SG. A true "old school" leader that taught his troops how to soldier and was respected by everyone that served with him. It was my privilege serving with him, he and a few others helped to set the standard for which I measured every senior NCO thereafter. My condolences to the family. Looking back, the years I spent in Gelnhausen serving with 2BDE, 3AD, I have a lot of fond memories. Grafenwohr, Hohenfels, Shiltz (Fulda Gap GDP), the monthly Alerts all don’t seem like that big a deal. I served a second tour in Germany with Special Operations Command Europe (SOCEUR) on Patch Barracks, Stuttgart. As far as I am concerned Gelnhausen and the Frankfurt area has it hands down. Glad to see this site.

Battle Ready!!

I apologize to all of the veterans of 2nd Battalion, 6th Field Artillery whose names may have disappeared from the roster listings. I recently completed a new entry and somehow everything below the headquarters listing became corrupted. I replaced it with a previous copy that is not up to date and will be researching my saved mail for the listings that I have received. It will take me a while to restore these. In the meantime, if you notice that you are no longer on the roster, you may send me an e-mail to make sure I get you back on or you can check back again in a few days to see if your listing has been restored.

If the expense of travel was making you think twice about coming to the reunion. Southwest Airlines www.southwest.com is having a special. Tickets are $39 – $99 if you purchase in advance by May 24th. Go to their website and check it out. You can fly to Baltimore from the West Coast for $99 each way. Come join us at Carlisle. Southwest flies to Baltimore which is about an hour and a half away. Fly to BWI and get a rental car for the weekend or share a car with others who are flying in.

Stationed at Ayers Kaserne with a great bunch of soldiers. Horvath was the First Sgt. of Hq company at that time. A fine leader who instilled a great pride among the troops in our company. Our battalion was the 2/36th Mech. Inf. and our motto at that time was "Deeds, not words". The whole expierience left a lasting impression on my life.

Attention to any Vets in the Minnesota area. I'm working on a veterans memorial park for the city of Belle Plaine, MN. The park is being totally funded by donations(don't worry – I'm not looking for money). In May I'm heading to Ft Rucker, AL to pick up a decommissioned Huey for display on a 10' pedestal. We'll have a flag display next year & hopefully an artillery piece in a couple of years. Should be ready in Aug 2001. Come by & check it out.Its going to be a great tribute. e-mail me for more info. A note to all Spearhead "Sappers" – we should have a 23rd Engineer Battalion reunion or at least some type of formal Intra-Spearhead chapter.

If you're a 3AD Vet – you owe it to yourself & the others who served to join the Spearhead Association !!!!!

In regards to our first reunion July 25-29, the Washington Redskins have decided to have their NFL training camp moved to Carlisle PA, the same town our reunion is being held in. Its official starting date is July 29. I have concerns about the availability in town of hotel rooms during this time. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of possibly attending to make a room reservation now. I believe there is a cancellation period where you can cancel the reservation ahead of time and pay nothing. All they ask for to reserve the room is a credit card number. But with an NFL team coming to a small town like Carlisle. This could lead to a problem with hotel rooms for the weekend.

It's been over a decade since I departed the "Ready First" Brigade. My three years in the division were well spent and well worth the time. For that, I thank my leadership. Because of them (then, LTC Rodney G. Thomas and MG George Joulwan), I have grown into a true professional who has had NO second thoughts about choosing the military as a career. As a "Buck Sergeant" I learned the value of not only training but, training to standard. Their leadership traits and command styles fomented my growth from a Junior NCO, to a Chief Warrant Officer, and now a Commissioned Officer. I have them to thank. As I count the months until I reach my 20 year mark, I can only hope to have the impact on others as they have had on me. THANK YOU…"LIFELINE"

First of all, I would like to thank the author of this web page. I am very proud to say that I was a member of 4/7 CAV during the last days of the Cold War and Operation Desert Shield/Storm. I was originally assigned to E-Troop, which was redesignated as F-Troop (Air-CAV). I was reassigned to Squadron S-4 under the command of Capt. Zelma Anderson. When the war was over and 4/7 CAV returned to Germany, the unit was temporalily placed under 8th ID and ultmately redesignated as 1st. AD 1/1 CAV. There are many names missing from the troop listings and I will do my best to research and assist in adding the names. Thanks, SPC. Ronald Brown

In response to Hal Johsons request, anyone who would like to find someone to ride with, drop me a note. I will try to hook you guys up with each other. Also, Southwest Airlines will often run specials for $99 to anywhere in the country. They fly to BWI. We could try to match people there as well to share a rental car.

I dont know. For some reason, I just felt like going back in time. My three years on the rock at Kirchgoens were tough ones. I was in the heavy mortar platton"4.2" and we were always in the field. I was thinking of ole Sgt Bloodworth the other day. Ok thats enough of that. I had a roomate at one time during my stay on the rock. A man by the name of Bobby Morris. If you ever met Bobby, you were lucky. He was one of the nicest people Ive ever met in my life. There were around 5 women on the rock at that time and Bobby ended up marrying one of them as I recall. By the way Bobby, It was me who traded field jackets with you and to this day I want to make it up to you if I can. We had a tragedy in csc 2/36 during my stay. John Mulligan, one of our scouts , was killed in an auto accident. Oh well, I dont want to get too long winded. My old squad leader Velez showed me the Kirchgoen national anthem one day. I can't recall all the words but the ending was "Fall out you men from Kirchgoen, Youve spent your time in hell". We truly did but we survived!!!!!

Served on "The Rock". Had a great time in Germany. The day I arrived at Ayers Kaserne, the place was swarming with MPs. It was just after duty hours, and apparently some of the guys in one of the infantry units were already drunk. We found out later that some lieutenant gave them some crap so they put him in a wall locker and threw the wall locker out the barracks window. Then there were the stereo wars between D/122 and HHC, 1st Brigade. What a place!

I enjoyed finding the Division Song on your site. I am doing research to compile a list of songs connected with the divisions, regiments, etc. and its very helpful to have that information where people can get to it. If you know of any other songs connected with the 3rd Armored Div, or any of its units, don't hesitate to send me a message. Thanks for a great site!!

I am trying to locate Louis Myrseth. He was stationed at Budingen, Germany from 1965 – 1968. Any information regarding his whereabouts after 1968 would be of great help.

Thank you

Shoot me a line if we served together. To bad about the breakup of the division and my old unit. Still have my dress greens as they were when I took them off 25 years ago. I'm missing the ascot and blue rope as they made you turn them in or pay for them. Well,I'd like to find a yellow ascot and blue rope to put with my greens.

My grandfather, PVT Eugene Hines, served in Company E of the 36th AIR, and was killed in action on September 17, 1944, at the Siegfried Line. This information was recently discovered by my mother, his oldest daughter, just last week. She had always been told that he was missing in action, but it turns out that much more information concerning his death was available – and the discovery of this information has given her a great deal of closure, and has brought me much closer to a grandfather that I never knew. I would love to hear more about what the 36th AIR was like, especially Company E. I believe he was with this company from its arrival in France to his demise just across the German border.

Jacob D. Griffin, now deceased was a medic in WWII. He spoke of Germany, Battle of the Bulge, and the hedge rows. I'd love to hear from someone who may have experienced what he did, and could share some stories with me.
