An ol' army buddy sent me this, he came in about a year before I left, he was in Charlie Company, I was in Alpha, so I can't recognize any faces, just a "maybe" or so, it's getting close to 40 years now :blink: . But to those of you who were stationed over here can look at the pictures and say, I did the exact same thing. ;)

The link wouldn't work for me but I see that 'Panzer Kaserne' was in the address. I was stationed there 75-78 with the 16th Infantry.

Hey Kim, I remember the 1/16th very well, you guys owned your side of the Kaserne, and we owned ours. I was there from 72'-75'.

Long live the Big Red One! :salute:

Ian, here's my non regulation haircut, had to be around 1973, I was still a SP/4 before they promoted me to PFC. :lol:
