  1. Charles, thank you for your service to our country and all those we served with) I found our company picture (145 of us) HQ 2/4 INF from 1975 Hall, Davis, Brandt, Lettuli, Doc Stowers, Pryor, Steel, Powell, London, and the list goes on and on and on.. We were young warriors then. You are the first one that I’ve ever heard from in 48 years. Our Co drove the 68 Shelby mustang and he also drove a half track (a motorcycle and a track) Kornwesthiem was a beautiful place. I retired from public works for the City of Tacoma,Washington in 2014(253) 224-5935 feel free to give me a call sometime. I wonder whatever happened to some of these soldiers. On my second tour I was stationed in Schweinfurt and Baumholder and another 3 yrs at Fort Polk Louisiana and another 3 yrs Fort Lewis Washington. I got to go now but we’ll keep in touch as much as time and health will allow us.. ☮️
