Savannah - December

Was recently contacted by some B.Co knuckleheads, Gator Wallace and Richy Rich, seems they are doing the Panama excursion this December, trying to drag me along. Think the said Big Duke 6 and CSM Hall are going as well. This is not in the cards for me.

Anyone planning to head to Savannah?

I chatted with a few of my amigos, Raad, Fernadez, Malloy, Rummells, Campbell and some others all planning to go.

My daughter lives in Nashville now, was born after I had to make that 44 mile drive to Ft. Stewart because having babies on Hunter was a no go. Her first 5 years were spent running around in the projects known as post housing. She has not been back and wants to see the place of her birth, so figured the 30th Anniversary would be as good as any.

If anyone is going, let me know. If there is some top secret Facebox group or something, let me know what the current info is.

And like all these things, if you served prior or after and want to drink some beers and tell some lies, the odds are someone will be there to either confirm or deny your tall tale, so come on down.

Yes. One, like myself with a weapons squad build, a bit thicker if you will.

Went on to SF for quite awhile, think he was working at JSOC when he retired, now living around Bragg.

Yea. That's him. Went TDY together on a seaside resort in Va.

He and I spent a summer ( '90) teaching dismounted patrolling to the fine cadets of the USMA.

Only A.Co, guy I remember was Hansen of Mortars pretty sure two from each company went along with some guys from 10th Group when it was at Devens.

Rhino Rummells ended up as an instructor at that TDY stop and still resides at the Beach today.

Jay was in Mortars. He was originally from one of the Dakotas. Went to OCS. Won best Ranger as an O with the 101st. I didn't know he was in Savannah. Someone told me he was in the mid-west as ROTC cadre, but that was a long time ago.

He runs the ROTC shop directly across from the new (post-1276) 1/75 campus on HAAF.

Would have been Jay. Pretty sure we went to Ranger School together as well.

I'll have to check the West Point manifest as we did some chopper blasts with 10th Group.

Which brings me to a "no shit there I was".. teaching dismounted patrolling at the USMA when we were told we need a jump while there to remain current. Seems it would be a chopper blast and some MSG from 10th group was the Primary and we were to be at pre jump at 1000 Saturday morning.

So, you know us hard heads from the 75th, fluff and buff and k-pot, double timing in formation to the airfield and we turn the corner and the SF dudes are in PT panties and brown T-Shirts.

We stop, do a left face, parade rest and Ol' MSG says... "what in the fuck are you meat heads doing". We explained that this was duty uniform for Pre Jump. He says..."well, unless you double time back over there and get in OUR duty uniform, you ain't jumping".

The difference between them and us was interesting to see over that summer, opened my eyes to a new way of seeing things. They deferred to us for the actual 7-8 stuff, in fact during the FTX weeks, many of them went back to Devens.
