I've been checking in here from time to time and only two other people that were on The Rock the same time I was, (HHC 1ST BDE, 3AD 1987-1990) have checked in. I know we had some guys that refused the introduction of useful knowledge but surely some of them are online by now. I sure hope I don't have to wait until I'm 50 or 60 before these fellas decide they "wonder whatever happened to old so-and-so". For those who were on the rock at that time: Do you remember those funky little yellow phone books that came from the Brigade Signal Office? I made those!!! If you have one, you'll see my name in it (SPC Shane Dooley) Does anyone remember Maj. Wayne J. Richards? He was supposed to take command of one a 143d signal unit after I left Germany (June '90).

I would very much like to see what a combat cavalrymans badge looks like. As a scout it was a slap in the face to see mech. infantrymen awarded CIB's for following in our tracks.While the real risks of armored recon went unacnowledged. I understand we all had our jobs to do, it just would have been nice to be remembered for doing it. The Cavalry Scout has been the "red haired step child of the Army" long enough.

Regarding the comments on the movie "Buffalo Soldiers". While I was in Germany, drinking and "smoking" were the norm for alot of troops. I'm not condoning or condeming it but, that's just the way it was.

i just wanted to comment on what one person posted regarding the movie called Buffalo Soldiers, as being slander towards anyone who served in Germany. Well, I have not seen the movie myself, but did go to the official website and read the synopsis on it, and even though it paints a very dismal picture of what this character in the movie did, to tell the truth alot of that kind of stuff happened when I was over their. Alcohol & Drugs were pretty prevailant and access to selling products (Cigarettes, liquior, sugar, and other highly tax luxury items) to the German people for a profit was an economy in itself. The critic's said the movie was the Army at war with itself, and at time's it was, there was quite a bit of racial tension that was fueled by both groups of soldiers who had a disliking to, or conditioned behavior towards other soldiers of different ethnic background or just being from other parts of the U.S. I myself tried to get along with everyone that I met and served with, but there were those that had there own agenda and there you have it. I'm sure if the sh%t would have hit the fan over there and we had to really go into action everyone would have forgotten their differences and fought together, instead of agaisnt each other. Well, all I wanted to do was to point out that the movie is not slander towards me our to any soldier who served over in Germany, its just one side of the coin….the tarnished side I'll admit, but the other side of that coin has just as many shining moments for alot of soldiers and the people of Germany too.

My assignment with 3AD was one of four in U.S. Army Europe during my more than twenty years on active duty. I am proud of my service, and I hope other Spearheaders feel the same. I recently saw a promo of a movie, "Buffalo Soldiers." This film is a slander against those of us who served in Germany during the Cold War. It depicts a unit of the army in Germany in 1989, full of criminals and drug abusers. The film is tanking at the box office, and will (thankfully) probably die a quick death. I don't want to give this piece of garbage any more publicity than it deserves, but we need to educate non-military people that the army depicted in the film is not the army in which we all proudly served. The film is anti-military and anti-American propaganda!

Lot of great memories, and at least 1 good friend, Rick. Where you saw one, the other wasn't too far away. Along with Charlie, and Brad, we were the Fire In The Hole Gang. Were seen and heard at the Rod&Gun Club on weekends. We weren't rowdy though, more or less enjoyed the music and people and kept the peace. Great little place. I was the last of us to leave. It was incredible , the amount we accomplished with so little. Best By Test. Well Done! Also, a special thank you to the people of G-Town, as long as you acted civilized and respected them and their country, they were the finest people you could ever meet. Not sure where she be now, but thanks to Mrs. Mueller outside the back gate for the great care of my uniforms. You were the best.

I was in the UAC (Unit Accounting Center) in charge of Officer's Records. "Most" of the officers treated me quite well since I was in charge of their records. But there were always a few 2L's that would attempt to throw their weight around (for a day or two). The 2nd/73rd became 6th/40th sometime in late 1963. So I was a "spearheader" and an "All for one, One for All" also.

Yesterday (17 September 2003) was the 60th anniversary of the arrival of HQ 3rd Armoured Division at Redlynch Park, Somerset(County), England. I'm a retired British Army Lt Col, I live at Redlynch Park – and yesterday I remembered those who came here in 1943 to help liberate Europe. The tree that the HQ planted here in April 1944 on leaving Redlynch still flourishes! Mike

Our friends in the Marines at Camp Pendleton are living in sub-standard housing, in conditions which are appalling, and possibly a threat to their health and the health of their families.

Please view the link below for more information.

Please do not consider this an endorsement of any party or candidate, on my part or this site, but do let as many people know that this situation exists and is not what our men and women in the Marine Corps deserve for their patriotic efforts.

Corrections to the comment that I just made. I was on C-14. SGT Hammierl was on C-13, SPC Reed was on C-13, PFC Kroker was moved to C-13 from C-14 while we were in Saudi. SSG Jamie Hall was the Dismount Squad Leader, he was on C-13 for a while. He switched with PFC Kroker.C-14 started the deployment with SPC Metaxas, PFC Kroker, PFC Johnson, and Myself SGT. Slabach. The driver to C-14 was PFC Johnson (Not Weasel). There was another Johnson. I sent pictures of him and SPC Mednia a couple of years ago. Thank you again.

Would like to hear from anyone in the 45th finance section from april 1965 to november 1967. I really enjoyed my tour in Germany and would not trade it for anything. It was my second trip to germany. I first went to Landstuhl Germany with my family in the summer of 1961 until november 1963. After coming back stateside, I finished school and joined the army and was sent back to the same area for another two and a half years. Five years in the Kaiserslautern area was great. I would also like to hear from anyone who was an army dependent on the hill of Landstuhl during 1961-1963.

Visited Frankfurt last year and so much has changed, Drake Kaserne is no longer "Drake" neither is Edwards and if anyone remembers "Johns" the restaurant just off post….it's now a thai restaurant!!!

I served with some special people while I was assigned to 3AD. People like SGM Damien Perez-Santiago, SPC Sandra Pixley, CPT P. Montes, LTC Thomas, CPT Mckee, Specialst Charles Dokes, "Snotrag" Bennet, Major Hughes, SFC Carter Hickman, SSG RUFUS G. "Pecker" Moore, The list is a lengthy one, but they were all special people for a special time. SGM Perez was truly the best example of a NCO that I came across in all my years of service. Thanks for the lessons of life you taught me! Specialist Moten was the best troop that I was ever responsible for, and Specialist Pixley was the best co-worker I have ever had. Spearhead was someting very special!

Hello everyone,

At the risk of offending someone, I want to make a commercial pitch here for the family business of one of our members.

At this year’s reunion in Seattle, I had the pleasure of meeting Bob Nueske who became member # 648 at the reunion. Bob and I quickly determined that we had been in Gelnhausen during the same late 60’s period. As Bob and I talked, our conversation drifted toward food; what we had at the reunion, what we enjoyed while in Germany, and my particular tastes for smoke meats. Bob told me about his family’s business, Nueske’s Hillcrest Farm in Wittenberg, Wisconsin. Like many family businesses, it started with Bob’s grandfather and continues today as the family business with Bob and his brother.

Bob has a standing offer to provide the meat for the German style meal at the next reunion, and we certainly hope to take him up on his very generous offer. In the meantime, if you’re interesting in trying some of the best apple wood smoked meats you could ever buy, check them out at www.nueske.com or call them at 1-800-392-2266 for a product catalog. I doubt that you could go wrong with anything they offer, but I found the thick sliced bacon to be especially good.

As I typed this message, I received an instant message from Bob and he’s on his way again to Russia with a stop also in Poland. Seems that the folks over there are also really fond of apple wood smoked meats!

Daryl

I am writing this on behalf of my father who served with the 67th FABN, 3rd AD during WW II. His name was Ferdinand Malik (nicknamed Lefty). He had a buddy who he ran around with John Lo Bue, also assigned with him. I was writing this to see if anyone remembered my Dad (he is in a Nursing Home in Clearwater, FL) or John LoBue. I have lots of stories that my Dad told me of the Spearhead Division and would like to share them. Most are comical, but its history. If anyone remembers serving with my Dad, I would love to hear from you.

Hard to find a better military website. Served as a sergeant in Finance, ending up heading the payroll compution sections. Arived 8/65 & separated in 10/67 in Frankfurt staying in Europe for another 3 months prior to returning to the US. Met my British wife in Frankfurt during my service time @ 3rd Armored Finance. Got married in England a couple of months after I separated. Been happily married now for 35 yrs, so my service time certainly changed my life. We reside in Portand OR where I have an insurance agency. Kept contact with two other finance friends who served with me. Captain John Harvey & Spec 5 Greg Ferussson "greggfergie43@aol.com" Both are now retired. John Harvey has supplied your website with photos. Lost EMAIL from old roommate in Frankfurt, Jack Nevell. Address is 2980 Beller Dr Darien Il 60561-1615

I was the primary supply room driver for the 503rd Admin Company in 64–>July '65. It was a great experience (looking back) while supplying a TO&E company of 270 that usually ran about 420+ individuals. I look back from September 2003 and can remember only the good times. Thank YOU all who read this and shared that era with me.

This website sure brings back a lot of memeories. My hats off to all that made this possible. I was a Tank mechanic in this company back then. I would really like to hear from some of my old buddies that I spent time with at Ray Barracks. To name a few there was Sgt Perrson, Shank, Sgt Willie D Patterson, Eric Greathouse (Grady), Ronald Ortiz (Squirrel), Snorkel, Margo, Sgt McGuire, Sgt Rutko, and there are many more that slips my mind right now. If anbody else was in B co during this time drop me a line. If you know any of the above people and can get them a message to contact me, please do.

They rotated to Germany in 1960. I served from dec 1961 to sept 1964, a lot of love goes with me today for Butzbach and Germany. back then we did not have the status of forces agreement, no one trusted anyone back then but i made a lot of friends over there at that time. I REMEMBER!

For all the old Redlions who have wondered what Safwan is like now…it is still a dump! Drove through there the first of this month on a convoy from Baghdad to camp New York in Kuwait. Brought back a lot of memories, and I hope I never have to see the town or the people again. Would like to hear from any of you who are up on the net. Bob Reynolds

Did you know that the Ayers Kasern was sold to Bork Transportunternehmen this year 2003. Owner Erwin und Gertrud Bork of Niederkleen. The Schloss Kaserne is gone also, it is Cityhall of Butzbach and looks wonderful. My parents own Autohaus Marx in Pohlgoens, if you like to have some pictures from Butzbach and around, email and I can help.

Excellent site! I'm trying to research my grandfather's history with the 3rd Armored. I don't have much info since he never talked about it with anyone. Except that he absolutely loved General Rose. I'd like to find which company, battalion, etc. in which he served. I know he trained at Palm Desert,Ca. He was a feisty red-headed Irishman from St. Louis, MO. His name is LAWRENCE E. FOWLER (L.E. for short) and was wounded at the Bulge, catching shrapnel in the left leg/ankle. He returned home to Chicago Veterans Hospital to recover, then worked for the National Archives in Irvine,CA. Any info or tid-bits will be greatly appreciated. E-mail me at ghills@cox.net. Thank you and remember that freedom isn't free.

The email virus thing can be cured by merely putting a fake email address at the start and finish of your address book. Make sure its something that can't work = aaa!!!???..oooo at start and zzzz!!!???.. or some such thing at the end. Since most virus' start at one end of book or the other, they will try to access it and won't be able to process the first email – they can't enter the address book so to speak. It won't keep you from getting a virus but it'll help prevent your passing it along. Like sgt King used to say, "it hain't no disgrace ta git them little buggers but it sure is a disgrace to keep'm!"

Hello

It seems that our membership is under attack at this time by some type of email (32.Sobig.F@mm.) virus program. This virus has attacked someone's computer and is reproducing the virus and sending the virus out based on infected computers address book. 

Here is a link that clearly explains the email virus.

I ran the mental health clinic at Kirch-Goens for 18 months, with SPC Eric Paape and PFC Ed Gonzalez. Fond memories of COL Crumley, 1st Bde Cdr, and lots of hard chargin' GIs. Remember Muenzenberg castle ruin, Table VIII at Graf, Kaffee on the Deutches Bundesbahn, warp 9 on the Autobahn, langer Samstags shopping in Butzbach, go to work in the dark and go home in the dark, "mit der 3.

Fascinating time to be a soldier- transitioning from draftees to all-vol, the 2-6 made great strides on its way to becoming a crack unit. Too bad I got in so much trouble then! I believe I recall 1LT M. T. Davis as A Btry XO – I was Sheesley's and Rogers's sidekick in 74.

I was with the 3AD as forward medical support during the ground battle. A group of Doctors and Nurses were part of the forward support team of the 345 Combat Support Hospital. We seperated from out unit and traveled with the 3AD and were with them at the front. We set up a triage area and prepared to receive wounded from the ground battle. As the night passed we realized we were winning the battle and we actually received no wounded, thank God.

We serviced any armor that came off of the ship,and picked them up in the staging areas to refit them with enhanced armor and upgraded from the 105 mm to the 120 mm.We set a standard for upgrades.Among us were civilians from various depots,National Guard,Reserve,and regular Army.We all were proud to serve,repair and replace.A great sense of pride went into everything we did.All of our labors went for those who fought with the M1A1.When I watch the History Channel,I can see the upgraded front slope armor,and say with pride to my family,I did that!Honorably Submiited Don Matthews

Mybrother John was with Patton. He is now deceased. I see a resemblance to our president in a book written in the 50's. Someone should tell the president that freedom is not a condemnation process. Its a transcendant process. The book is: 'Encounter with Nothingness', in its chapter, 'Condemned to Be Free', By Helmut Kuhn.

Man, I can't believe nobody from the 503rd FSB has checked in. Like many have stated, my time in Germany was the best 3 yrs of my 16 yrs (so far) in the Army. I would redo it again in a second. It makes me very sad when I think of how "that" Army is so gone. It may have only been 10 yrs ago, but it seems like a life time. God bless everyone I was with in the 503rd FSB. Mainly Bravo Company.

Just stumbled upon the fact that 3/5 Cav was re-activated quite some time ago. I served with C Troop, 3rd Sqdn, 5th Cavalry, from 1972 to 1975, while they were a part of the 9th Infantry Division, at Ft. Lewis, Washington. The 3/5 was an Air Squadron back then, with triple capability. We had three Troops of Huey's, Cobra's, and OH-58's, with a Grunt Platoon in each Troop, and we had a Troop of Sheridan's. It's amazing that we trained year around in the desert, even back then…Obviously somebody knew we'd eventually have a conflict there.

I'm proud of you guys, (and gals, yeah, I know times have changed).

I was the S2 clerk and the Information Specialist for the 503rd. I still have my 3Rd Armored Year Book from either 63 or 64 and a few pictures and stories that I wrote for the Spearhead. I also have a black and white aerial view of of Fliegerhorst taken by an OV-1 Mohawk. Lastly I have two black and white areial shots taken near Vogelsberg of two swatikas that were planted in the forest with different types of trees than the evergreens, one of them has a large 1939 planted underneath it. These were also taken by a Mohawk.

Question: did the German goverment ever remove the ME109s from the underground hanger at Fliegerhorst? contact me either at this web address or my home ottom0609@aol.com

Spearhead Veterans

On 1 August 03 the "Members Only" section of the website will open. This Members Only section will include a private members guestbook, newsletters, complete members roster filled with pictures & email address, skuttlebutt directions and in the near future a chat room. If you would like access to the Members Only section of the website all you have to do is join the A3ADV. If you would like to join please go to the membership link on the opening main page of the website. If you would like to renew an expired membership please contact Daryl Gordon at Secretary@3ad.org

If you noticed this public guestbook no longer has an area to leave an email address. The Board of Directors removed this feature from the public guestbook to stop/cutdown on the Spam we receive after leaving our email address in this public forum. The Members Only guestbook will have complete email access.

This is a big step for the A3ADV and I hope to read each of your names in the Members Only guestbook starting 1 August 03.

Members of the A3ADV, the directions to receive the log-in & password for entering the Members Only section of the website be sent out on late on the 31 July 03. Then each member will have to send a seperate reply as per the directions to receive the log-in/password. This will give the Board of Directors an opportunity to verify membership status and to check for a current email address.

I never served in the military due to medical reasons but want to thank you for the info on General Maurice Rose. He was featured on the history channel's program on your organization and its too bad that he was cut down like that. He seemed to be a real leader and I thank all concerned for letting me know more about such a man.

I just saw your web site and decided to give you an update on my stepdad, Cpt Lee Elliot Taylor who served with the 3/8 Cav from June 1982 to February (??) 1984. He served in C Trp and HHT while assigned to the 3/8 Cav.

My stepdad passed away unexpectedly in June 2001 in Newport News, VA. He is survived by: his wife Jodi (he divorced my mother Melanie Taylor six months before his death); stepchildren (all of his were withb him while he was with the 3/8 Cav) John and Kevin Douglas and Tara and Laura Taylor (Douglas at the time). His biological children: Melissa P Taylor (20) and son Andrew B Taylor (16). My mother has requested that all internet contacts go through me and I can be reached at krdouglas@yahoo.com and I will forward all contacts to my family.

Respectfully,

Kevin R Douglas Stepson of Cpt Lee E Taylor 3/8 Cav from June 1982 to Feb 1984

The attendance list for the 2003 reunion in Seattle and photos are posted on the reunion pages. Just follow the links. I have also requested permission to post the article written for the Fort Lewis newspaper on the group's visit to the fort. If I get permission, I will post the article or a link to it, whichever we can get.

As Phil said in his posting, we had a great time and all of the native Washingtonians agreed that we were blessed with some of the best weather ever for Seattle. We actually clearly saw Mt Ranier every single day, which I guess is somewhat of a rarity.

Lots of folks were able to refresh old friendships and make new ones, which is the primary mission for the reunions. We continue to have good success and we are really looking forward to the joint reunion with the WWII association in Columbus, Ohio in 2004. We really would like to see each and every member (we can be optimistic) join us for this really special event that has long been the hope and dream of many of our members. Start making your plans to join us there!

Coleman Kaserne, Gelenhausen, Germany. Elvis's station 2 months after I left for discharge in May 1958. Served in fire direction control unit of Headquarters battery. Also served as battalion S-3 clerk. Obtained rank of E-5. Remembering field trips to Gelenhausen and Grafenweir (excuse spelling), the cold and the mud and how so very young I was. Would love to hear from anyone who served at about the same time.

For those of you who could not make the 3rd Annual Reunion in Seattle, I can tell you that you missed some of the most beautiful weather ever! I am a Washingtonian, and with the rain we usually get, this was Paradise to me. We had a great time, and met some new folks along the way. My hat goes off to Carl Erickson for the coordination effort in getting things ready . . .and from clear across the country!

We missed some of the folks from previous reunions, but perhaps Columbus, OH will get them back. The rewards just keep a-comin' . . . I saw two old comrades from my time get together face to face for the first time in 40 years: Carl Lotz and Mike Stubbs. . . .the three of us spilled a lot of coffee over some of the stories. Good times.

Come on and share your stories on the Guestbook; that is how your old fellow soldiers can find you!

Who knows . . . . . .

I was with the Public Affairs Office, so I'm naturally curious as to how my partners in crime have faired since I left Frankfurt. I'm also looking for lost friends who were in the Equal Opportunity Office, and Sue Pizarro, who worked for the general. I'm in the process of digging through my photos, looking for 3AD stuff.If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll see if there's anything of import or relavence. After 8 years with the active Army, and 12 years in the Air Force Reserves, I retired and moved to Alaska. Are there any Third Herders up here? Freddie

In many of the areas the 57th is not mentioned. It was phased out in mid 1958 and we were put in 7th army. Then we were returned to the states. We were indeed part of the 3rd at Fliegerhorst Kaserne.

Hello

I am leaving in the AM for Seattle and the 2003 A3ADV Reunion. I look forward to renewing friendships I have made over the past 3 1/2 years and I look forward to making new friends. I hope everyone has a safe trip.

My thoughts will be with the former 3 AD units (Iron Dukes, Bandits, Spartans, Gunners & others)& our members (Dan M. & Hal D. )serving in that hell hole called Baghdad. We will be raising a toast in your honor and we look forward to each of you joining us at the 2004 reunion in Columbus, Ohio!

God Bless the USA!

Kevin

Just checking in. Was a SSG in B 1-48/4-18. Then went to S-3 4-18 and finally HHC 2nd Brigade after the ground war. Went to OCS in 1996 and now am the Brigade S-1 for the Infantry Training Brigade at Fort Benning. Send me an email or call (706) 544-8096 or DSN 784-8096. Would love to hear from you. SSG Don Stewart is here and SFC(R) Brian Chambers lives near Atlanta. SFC(R) Steve Pool is living in Pennsylvania. I'll always remember my time in the 3rd Armored Division. Best unit I've served in in almost 20 years of service. SPEARHEAD!

We were on a training mission at Graffenwoher when we got the word we were going to Saudi. I had just gotten my E-5 a few days before leaving for Graffenwoher and was NCOIC Advance Party. Either I did a good job, or he wanted me gone, because On 6 Dec 1990, I was assigned as Advanced Party NCOIC along with SPC Mike Jenkins and 3 others (do not remember who they are). After landing at Dhahran, we went to Al Jabaal and was assigned to the Big Red One. They were in a huge hangar which housed 100 persons from varying units. Next door was the British and the base we were on was governed by the Marines.

I remember a story that a jar-head was dared to urinate on a mosque. He did so and was summarily arrested. As the story goes, the Saudi's wanted to decapitate him as punishment (I told my guys we werent in Germany any more and not to piss on any buildings…EVER!)

I had a good bunch of guys with me. I even got Jenkins a job at AAFEES which really benefited us. He would set the good stuff aside for us, which was really great since most of us did not have much time to get ready before shipping out.

Aside from ongoing training and perimiter guard, our job was to insure that all vehicles were safe and ready for combat before the units arrived. But all in all, it was an easy assignment. Then Jenkins was bitten by a spider (I think he called it a Camel Spider) and lost all of his body hair and had to go back to the rear (I never did find out if it ever grew back, but when I returned back to Germany on 11 May '91 some was growing back)

We did this by taking the vehicles off of the ships, inspecting them for sabotage or malfunctions then all NCO's would then take turns as convoy commander to take the vehicles in convoy about 20 miles to a staging area. There another team took charge of the vehicles and topped them off, performed another inspection then they were parked and awaited to be picked up by their unit.

This operation ensured that any unit slotted to arrive would have there vehicles ready for pick up upon their arrival in country.

On Jan 05 '91 the 5 of us were re-assigned to A Co 122MSB in Dammam. We then moved out to Camp Henry.

The day I arrived at Camp Henry there was a fight. One of the guys Roberts had his protective mask ran over by Pitts. Directly after that happens the M-8 alarm goes off Roberts didnt have a mask so SSG Oaks zipped him up in his sleeping bag for protection. It was at that time that I knew it was going to be a long hitch.

We had pet monitor lizards and black scorpions. Someone put some hundred mile-an-hour tape around the stinger so we could handle them without fear of getting zapped. We would take the stinger and put it in our mouths in the pre morning hours before it had a chance to warm itself by the sun. Once it warmed up it would roll backwards and pinch your nostrals with its pincers. Needless to say its hilarious to watch someone screaming like a girl when that scorpion rolls back and grabs a peice of your nostral! I dont remember who that happened to, but the morning we rolled out to Iraq, a couple of guys asked me to take a picture with the scorpion in their mouths. The heat of their breathing warmed up the scorpion enough so the last guy got a picture of his eyes wide while he slapped at his face trying to get the scorpion off of his nose.

One day I was told I was going to be part of an advance party into Iraq. I got SPC Robert E?. Maj Kline gave us our instructions and we headed out. We took our position at the rear of the convoy. But there was one person missing. Our Lt. We were told to go and he would catch up later. Enroute we came across some infantry or MP's who told us that we were driving very close to the front line. We had our orders and proceeded forward. A little before nightfall we reached our destination still without the Lt. We had an NCO meeting and decided to form a wagon wheel perimiter with our vehicles with two persons locked and loaded with night vision goggles (NCO's were the only ones with NVG's) we decided we would have one SOG and one guard every 1.5 hrs. There werent enough NCO's so some SPC's had to pull SOG. About 2.5 hours later, here comes the Lt. He told us that we could not stay because it was too hot and would be moving out at first light.

As soon as first light we began to head back to Camp Henry. About an hour into the trip Maj Kline shows up and stops the convoy. He then tells everyone that we are in a hot zone and will be following a certain route back to Henry. He then begins to hand out copies of the map to a few people and as he approaches me, he tells me that if any vehicle breaks down that I cannot fix quickly, I'm suppose to make sure the driver has enough food an ammo (NCO's had control of the ammo too) and leave them there with their vehicle. Needless to say I didnt feel good about that, but told him 'Yes Sir'.

We were roughly 6 to 8 hours from Camp Henry and it was all cross country. No roads. Sure enough a fuel tanker breaks down. The water pump is shot and I'm not about to leave someone out here alone so we dump the fuel and disable both the tanker and tractor. Now keep in mind that I'm driving an old M-8 something 5-ton with a manual trans and a water buffalo in tow, so driving across the roadless desert was not easy to do. I'm trying to drive faster than the wind can erase the convoy tracks and we're doing great until we see another vehicle stopped, at least its a 5-ton automatic.

Now this truck had our food in it, and the last thing we wanted to do was leave a bunch of food for the enemy, so we got out to see whats wrong and then I just lost it. Both outer tires were blown on the driver side. Now I'm really pissed. It was just two flat tires and the two people in the cab were just sitting there either waiting for us or waiting to get shot. So sarge if you are reading this and you get upset….oh well. Yep thats right, I said sarge, as in Sgt E-5. The driver was a female sgt and her passenger a female spc. I guess they didnt hear of womens rights and if they had, they sure didnt subscribe!! We're in a freaking war zone and they're acting as if they are back on the block waiting for AAA!

Well since they just sat there waiting for us, I told them we were going to eat lunch while they loosened the lugs and got it ready for us. Ha ha, they didnt like that, but I wasnt about to argue with her so I embelished, just a little bit, what Maj Kline told me and that got her moving. Since we hadnt had breakfast we were really hungry and besides I needed to check over my truck and make sure I wasnt going to lose the water buffalo.

After about 5 minutes of watching the female version of Moe and Curly it was obvious we werent going to have breakfast. I told Robert E ( thats what we called him, but for some reason I dont think that was his name LOL ) and the other guy to start breaking the lugs loose while I dropped both spares from each truck. Needless to say the girls werent much help, but I held bit my lip and kept a civil tongue. Then they asked how we were going to change the tire without jacking it up………..uhm its sand, we just had to dig enough out to put the tire on. We were done changing both tires in roughly 15 minutes. I was still furious but kept quiet.

Now I had 4 people and two vehicles to get back to Camp. It was obvious we wouldnt catch the convoy and Maj Kline didnt give me a map, so I had to use my training from PLDC since it was still fresh in my mind it was fairly simple. I gathered everyone around and told them of our situation. Because Maj Kline was in such a rush to move us out I felt that we were more than likely behind the front line and the occasional gun fire made us all nervous. Sometimes it sounded close and other times far away, so I made the decision that everyone would lock and load a 30 round clip.

I had an idea, just an idea, of where KKMC was and since no one else was speaking up I chose a direction, took my compass out and told Robert E to get his out as well and fixed on a position. I'm not sure if we were in Iraq or Saudi, but I did know we needed to go in a South by South East direction. I set the compass and locked it and told Robert E to keep his open. If we could get to KKMC we could get to camp. Next I told them to put one round in the chamber, put their goggles on, roll down their window and point their M-16 out the window. The female driver would drive with her left hand and use her arm as a support for her weapon. The other guy we picked up previously I put in the back and we were on our way.

Robert E kept me straight by using the compass. You should have seen us barrelling across the desert with that little water buffalo bouncing up and down as we drove across those dunes!!! The girls were behind us simply because I didnt know if I could rely on them to drive fast and straight. We were hitting those dunes so hard that we actually got airborn several times. To this day I'm amazed that that water buffalo stayed attatched let alone upright! There were a few times we didnt know if we were being shot at or not, but we just kept going. I know I had to have burned that clutch up, but I'll be damned if I was going to slow down.

I guess I was more amazed at the fact that we not only made it back to Camp Henry, but we made it about an hour and a half before Maj Kline did. You should have seen his face when I gave him my report. Damn he was furious that maintenance had beaten him back to camp and with such a huge time deficit!!

The day we left Henry for Iraq had to be the longest day. I remember going in circles ( I think the LTC was lost, but that is just my opinion). It was as if we were the Keystone Kopps and didnt know what direction to move in. Well thats one of my stories from Operation Desert Storm / Sheild.

An anonymous posting in the guestbook asks:

Does this group have elections any more. How is this going to be done since at this point, only those who attend the reunion are going to be able to vote????

As the Secretary of the Association, I will provide the answer to this question for everyone (members and non-members). In the April 15 Association newsletter, a call for nominations went out to all Association members. Three nominees were received by your Secretary. Those are: Kevin W. Colson, David Feller, and Paul Smith, all members in good standing and currently serving on the board. No other nominations have been received. We will accept nominations from the floor at the annual meeting, but of course one would have to be present to make such a nomination. Without any additional nominations, the three nominees will be elected to the three open director positions. Consequently, no ballots were provided to the general membership. Had more than three nominations been submitted, ballots would have been provided to all members for voting.

I apologize for not getting this information out earlier, but part of our problem is the need for a newsletter editor. We should have had an early July newsletter that has not been published and this information should have been in it. If our anonymous message poster is a member of the Association and has the time, maybe he could volunteer to be the newsletter editor. If there is anyone interested in doing the newsletter or helping with it, please contact President Kevin W. Colson at president@3ad.org.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support the Association as we continue to grow and deal with the day to day issues for the membership.

Your Association Secretary Daryl W. Gordon 6FA 2/HHB, 67-70

Hello

Yes we have elections. We had three openings for the Board of Directors and only three members (Paul Smith, Dave Feller & Kevin Colson) were interested in running. The election was announced in the April 03 newsletter.

Served as a very young soldier at the age of 17. Those years will never be forgotten. Memories of the Brats and Brouchen on the way to the motor pool.

Every time I smell diesel, I remember my Sheridan " The Cuban Crisis"

Looking for memorabilia and where I may get a flag to fly on special holidays.

My grandfather, Major William C. Martin, spent the majority of his life serving his country in the military. He was very proud to be in the 3rd Armored Division and used to tell me many stories when I was young. I only wish that I was older at the time or that he was still with us to hear more of those stories. It turns out that I have developed an interest in the 3rd Armored Division and what it was like during WWII. I am proud of my grandfather and that is why I am on this site now. I hope that some of you had the pleasure of knowing him as well.

Message to all CCo 3-8 CAV soldiers from C6

Happy 4th to the Thunderbolts,

Well I thought that since it has been 12 years since C Co had a Command and Staff meeting, it was deserving to inform you guys that last week we had one. Probably the best one that we ever had. Top and his family stopped over in Puerto Rico on their way to the Virgin Islands, (poor bastard) even thoug the meeting only lasted 5 hours I have to admit that the agenda was covered in style, Tim managed to tackle the crap out of the 7 and 7, and I did my anti-communist routine by making sure there was less Vodka for the SOBs in the Mother Land, since I could not find the restaurant without my faithful driver Julio, we took shelter in a nice Argentinian place. We told stories and Rosemary and the NO Longer Hasting's kids had a nice Beef dinner, while TOP and I remembered the latrine burning BBQs that we had in the desert. We had a wonderful time, for those of you that are curious, both TOP and I would be in the Fat Boy Program if we were still in the Army, remedial PT would be an every day thing and while I have very little hair left (putting up w/ Michek, Julio and Weiss was not easy) the ISG's head is ALL WHITE.

 

I have to get to work now, I hope everyone is well and had a good time on OUR day, remember Freedom is not free, El Diablo

I did not serve in the military. I am requesting info re: 221st Ord, HAM Co. , Leyte, 1945 for a Jessie Clayton with "email requests for info" all over the internet. He is attempting to reconnect with his old friends or anyone who remembers C.E.Houchins & Eugene Bellis. Anyone with info, go to military.com or yahoogroups WW II site. If you cannot find him there, email me and I shall pass it on. Thank you. Pat

Served in Budingen, 1977-80, loved those chili cheese dogs on brotchen that were sold at the little stand on the way to the motor pool… and don't forget the pommes frites sold along the roadsides 🙂 Looking for any of the 3rd platoon, I still got all the pictures.

Hope to find some of my old running partners from "The Rock". Had some great times there. Anyone who served in Bravo Company 3-36 Infantry between 85 and 89 can email me at the above listed email address. Sure do miss the "Bub" (1SGT Tribble). He was mean as hell but I am thankful for the life lessons he taught me and for helping me grow up. If by some chance he reads this I would like to say "Thanks Bub!"

My father Andrew Kline served with the 3rd Armor Division during WWII. He died in 1963 at the age of 41. My brothers and I have no idea what he did, though we hear he was an interpreter or a driver. Of anyone has any information we would appreciate it. Thank you, Bonnie Kline Brady
