Sadly, one of our own passed away yesterday! Eugene (Bubba) Harrell is in my prayers and hopefully yours as well. My condolences to Carol, his wife.

Does anybody have any pictures of him? I can remember him, always smiling, but I don't seem to have any pictures.

(1576) Auto-Bahn mishap 1971. The Late Great Gene Ariel was riding shotgun. Whole team would have been lost if it wasn’t for weapons box in rear of vehicle

Had to look twice, I thought it was a Gama Goat. Don't you miss those, too?

Larry Fukalek Monday, November 13, 2017 05:34 PM
We had a Gama Goat at the ADM Plt., 16th Engr. Co., in 1972.

(1575) Dan Trewartha: "Would I love to have the plans to build one of them!!!!(Hint, Hint)"

From what I understand people with enough computer skills can get the particulars of an object from a photo fairly easily.

I found a picture of one of the Crazy Horse frames on the Web. I don't have any idea how I could find the person who originated these, and there's always the possibility that he's got these patented, but I'm certain this photo shows enough of the frame where the engine/transaxle's mounted to give an idea of what you'd be working with.

I wrote to and spoke with the person who bought this frame. He's somewhere in Northern California, which sounds right as that's where the originator did all this at. Fellow didn't like the way the frame sat so he chopped it down to a VW trike. Sacrilege to my way of thinking as you'll never find these things again unless someone like you, Dan, can revive them.

Have Welder, Will Travel, right?

How many 55G's are on this site? How many on this site were 12E's from WSD/K in the mid 70's?

Jim Cauthron Wednesday, November 1, 2017 04:40 PM
I was a 12E that transitioned to 55G in 1976. I went to Sieglesbach Army Depot, to 197th Old BN, to 59TH Old Bed, to 165th MP CO as the ISG and retired in 85.

Larry Fukalek Tuesday, November 7, 2017 06:08 PM
I was given 55G in 1977. Remained with ADM units with two duties, a 12E Team Chief & as a 55G for as Trainer Maintenance NCO.

I wonder what has happened to all of the old training SADMs we had? They really need one for the display

Fellow ADM brethren
One of our own is in trouble and needs your help. His name is Ralph A Coslet. He came to the 567th as a new recruit in 1977 and served 4 years, leaving Fort Hood as an E-5 buck sergeant. Ralph was assigned to my platoon in Hanau and I took him under my wing when he was green and helped him acclimate to the army. He was part of my team the year we had the first "Close Out" NSI inspection. Ralph & I became fast friends and have kept in touch thru the years.

Recently Ralph has fallen on hard times and last week he spent his last dollar. It's a rather long story which I won't go into here but if you want to hear it, contact me and I will tell it. Meanwhile, Ralph could really use some money. If you can spare a hundred or two, that would be great. The best way to get the money to him is to use MoneyGram. He can pick the money up at any Walmart store. When sending a MoneyGram, you need to send him the MoneyGram Reference #. He can receive text message on his cell phone. If you are sending him money, please email me directly and ask me for his cell phone number. peter at hot glass works dot com

Please help him out of his dire circumstance. He is a good guy and doesn't deserve the #@*%!ty hand life dealt him in recent years. The short version is; he was involved in a car accident, in which he was not driving, and suffered many injuries, some of which have impaired his ability to keep a decent job. He is homeless right now, sleeping in his car which he cannot even move because he has (had) no gas money. I sent him $300 this morning. Please follow suite and send him as much as you can afford to give.

Curt Friday, September 8, 2017 06:48 PM
Your post has been here a couple of days, just saw it. I emailed you, please respond if Ralph still needs assistance.

GoFundMe gets used a lot now, gofundme dot com. Even if he doesn't have internet access, I'm sure he has someone who can help him access however much money he raises.

Matter of fact, I have an idea for that now.

I was with the 567th in Kelly Barracks, Darmstadt from April 1972 to November 1973. 12E20.
I am looking to connect with some of the guys I served with. Willie Hernandez, Don Hill, Dave Vance, Tom Thompson, Buck Sellhorn and anyone else. I would appreciate any contacts for these folks. Thanks!

(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.

Curt Friday, September 8, 2017 06:52 PM
Eye level with angle worms. Any welders here? If there's no patent on these frames and if R-10 engines can still be found in junk yards, this would be an interesting hobby.

Dan Trewartha Thursday, October 19, 2017 01:19 AM

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

Chuck B. Monday, July 3, 2017 09:53 AM
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!!

Chuck B. Monday, July 3, 2017 10:03 AM
Did you see that Ron Schutz passed away?

Dave Vance Monday, July 3, 2017 09:55 PM
I saw the passing of our friend. God bless him and his family. All going well for you?

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.

Dan Trewartha Friday, July 14, 2017 12:14 PM
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.

Peter Thursday, July 20, 2017 09:58 PM
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.
