This photo was taken in the summer of 1963 at Gelnhausen for the Spearhead newspaper's 22nd Anniversary edition. The M-60 was courtesy of the 1/33rd Armor that shared Coleman Kaserne with us. The Spearhead article reported the troopers are SGT's Carpenter and Beene, SP4's Rilery, Whitten, and PFC's Mosely, Liskel, Madkins, Watson, and Harding.
Here is a photo of track A-11 2-I-48 of the 2nd ARB in the winter of 1962-3. It was the mount of the 1st Squad, 1st Platoon, Co A, Lt. Carl Erickson, Platoon Leader.
And of course the chow truck! I remember getting scrambled eggs from it in the dead of winter (while wearing Mickey Mouse winter boots). The grease turned white from cold within 60 seconds, but if you gobbled it down while still warm, they were great! I marveled at how the cooks could prepare a meal while we moved so much.
The Battalion on parade, 1964.
I took this photo from an observation post during a live fire exercise at Hohenfels. At the time I was the mortar platoon leader in A Company, and the platoon was firing a defensive barrage in front of the tree line.
