(1561) Actually, if there was any MOS that came closer to defining what the Cold War was than 12E, I don't know what it was.

This face is also fairly definitive of what the Cold War did to those who fled the Iron Curtain. This woman's mother was Lithuanian, and since she was killed I've met others from that country basically seeing who Gina had brought home this time. But then I'd get their stories, too. Stories just like you'd read in Reader's Digest back in those days: One, specifically, was the father, mother, and two infant daughters paddling across whatever river that is running through Lithuania at night while the Soviet border guards were shooting at them. The father was educated; when they reached America he eventually got employment in the university system which seems to be the common story with the intelligentsia fleeing Stalin, it was flight or arrest.

Going to skip social commentary, don't want this post deleted. But it's what happened to these refugee's children once that reached America that's seldom told as, try as they might to be assimilated into American society, sometimes it just didn't work. What happened to this woman and her family is a fine example.

I don't think anyone saw the Cold War like 12E's did, and sometimes maybe something might happen in your life that'll make you realize that. What you were is gone now, it'll never be replaced and neither will the people who aren't here any longer. It's all about the memories that you have, and those that were given to you by those who became close to you one way or another.

(1558) Bob Dole's campaign train, 1996. Lots of comments, I'll save 'em for later. But the people behind having the convention in San Diego in '96 are the reason he didn't get elected, that's why he was labeled "unelectable."

Get 'em, Donald.

Found this website today and clouds of age started to lift. ADM team member with the 15th Engr., 9th Inf. before being assigned to 23 Engr. Bn. in Sept 1974. Then to the 567th, 7th, 4th, 5th and HQ. Reverted to Combat Engr at Belvoir and stayed until retiring in 1990. Residing in Oregon this day after retiring in California. Many familiar names. Glad to see this site.

Bryan Wednesday, March 1, 2017 06:08 AM
Looks like there is, I gave the attendant this site to give the curator and she said they always look for ways to connect to vets so hopefully the curator will come here and ask any questions. usarmy.leonardwood.engineer-schl.mbx.museum@mail.mil

I went to the museums at Ft. Leonard Wood yesterday and the Engineer Museum has a very small ADM display. This was the plaque, I let them know the SADM didn't weigh 163 lbs!

I remember him at a Stuttgart beer hall with a country music song being played drinking beer from his funky cowboy boot.

I was 3rd Platoon Leader in Hanau from Oct 1975 to April 1997. SFC Fish (don't remember first name) and Tommy Maines were my Platoon Sergeants. I attended the first reunion we held in Savannah and had a great time. Put in a full 30 and then spent nearly 12 years as the Director of Public Works at Fort Bragg before retiring a second time in Jan 2016.

I've battled prostate cancer for the last 5 years. I had the prostate removed in 2012, but the cancer came back in 2015, just finished almost 2 years of hormone treatments (no fun) and am cancer free once again. If anyone is diagnosed with the cancer feel free to contact me gbean52@aol.com

Chuck Badger Saturday, December 31, 2016 09:10 PM
Also think I was Plt. Sgt. when U were there after Maines. We worked with the Brits. then I went to 4th Plt for another NSI after the 3rd. I departed Hanau in 1982 after 1 year as 1SG of the 567th. Retired in 1988 (25 years) Good old days!!

Norm Stone Sunday, January 1, 2017 10:38 AM
Greg,

My wife stumbled on to this site last night and we spent the next couple of hours looking through the list of names to see who we remembered.

You may not remember, but on January 12th, it will be the 41st anniversary of our arrival in Germany. You were the first to greet us as you came to pick us up at Rhine-Main AFB. While that was nearly 41 years ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. One of the first things you told us was, "Your tour has been extended 3 months to 42 months." Yikes!!

I'm sorry for your recent health issues, and glad that you're doing better.

We're doing fine and are settled in Searcy, Arkansas where I'm on the faculty at Harding University in the College of Business Administration. My wife and I have two children and 7 grandchildren - ages 3 to 12. We are, indeed, very blessed.

I hope you continue to do well. God Bless,

Norm

Greg Bean Sunday, January 1, 2017 08:06 PM
Remember both of you! I just dug out the "Ballad of the 567th" and the skit we did when MAJ Magnell left. I'm Facebook friends with Kent Brown and talk with Norm Andersson

Jay Popiel Monday, January 2, 2017 02:57 PM
Not to horn in on your remember when, but there is going to be another reunion. This time a cruise, this Sept from Mobile. If you are interested or know someone who might be , please contact me Jay Popiel ,567th ADM 1969-71...popiels@comcast.net

Francis Napoleon Tuesday, January 10, 2017 01:26 PM
I think I was in 2nd Plt in 1977-79 with SFC Brown as Plt Sgt. Sorry to hear about the Cancer but glad you beat it back. SSG Bartz was my team chief and Old man Meyers was senior tech.

Frank W. Raymond, Jr. Thursday, March 2, 2017 01:02 PM
Lt/Col Bean: Been a long time since the Savannah reunion. Special Barrier Company 100 and Hauptmann Ox is a long time ago. We did have good times in Minden. Sorry to hear of the cancer. I survived a heart attack with some replumbing done. Started jumping out of airplanes at 63 and enjoy every jump. Between Submarines and jumping I have had a great life. Good to now you are still out there.
