(1569) This is a trike like I had back in the '70s; mine was blue. That's a Renault R-10 engine, it obviously sat very low and was quite fast.

It was also what I was on when I met Gen. Pease. I post this here as I've seen other veterans post their Harley Davidson photos. This trike wasn't a Harley, but the person who designed it won awards when he showed his creations at the Cal-Expo Autorama. For true HD enthusiasts, it wasn't but it was mildly accepted.

I was about eye-level with Gen. Pease's front tire as I remember it.

In Darmstadt and Hanau we had pretty good softball teams. I see many of the guys pictures from the reunion pic.
I was fornunate to serve under SSG Martinez in Darmstadt and SFC C Badger as a team Leader in the 4th Platoon in Hanau.
4th Platoon of the 567th was the first unit in V corp to accomplish and recieve an ARCOM for NO COMMENTS/NO DEFICENCY Inspection during 1976. I'm sure breaking the ice allowed many to follow in our footsteps.
Thank You to all of you who impacted my life in even the smallest way. I would not have accomplished many of the things in my life without your influence and grooming.
God Bless

That was a long time ago!! We had a good time working with the Germans and Cpt. Oex. I retired in 1988 W/ 24 years 10 months & 4 days. After 3 years of 1SG of Combat Engr. Co I was sooo ready! ADMers and dogs are the best people!!

Did you see that Ron Schutz passed away?

Dave Vance Monday, July 3, 2017 09:55 PM

Anyone who wants can connect thru there as well. I'm probably not going to the reunion. I just spent 2 weeks in NAPA Valley enjoying all of the wines. Lol
I look forward to engaging with anyone who want too.

Dave, I was in Darmstadt from 72 to 74. I remember you well. I wish I could make it to the reunion. But my disability would not allow me drive that far.

Hey Dave,
I remember back in '77 or so you predicting that the "L" cassette would be the new recording media of the future.
Do you still have your "L" cassette machine??

In 1970 there were no more than 750 men with MOS 12E worldwide, and I believe that at any given time the 750 number was kept as constant as Yale's Skull and Bones' 800.

chuck B. Monday, June 26, 2017 07:51 AM
Sounds about right 567th,275th& 66th engr. companies? Never thought too much about it but very interesting statistic!

Hello I was with the 567th 2nd Plt. from 1980 to 1986. Am interested if any 12E from that time are around

Mark Bernier Saturday, May 27, 2017 02:54 PM
I remember you from my time in the 2nd, Charles Badger sometimes posts here. I remember Sgt Badger getting mad at Larry Button for saying our rations weren't equally distributed while in the field in Netherlands.

chuck B. Wednesday, May 31, 2017 10:12 AM
More than 35 years ago but if memory serves me Button complained about everything?

Mark Bernier Tuesday, July 4, 2017 03:26 AM
Yes, I remember it the same way.

(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.

Excellent! Thank you for logging in, there is a wealth of knowledge here on ADMs and I am sure everyone would like our story told as accurately as possible.

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.

Is there an e-mail address to mail them more pictures of different ADM patches??

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
