In reference to the photo of the 23rd Engr ADM platoon. The cent sqd leader with the glasses is Eddie Denney, I am on his right. The SSG on Denney's left is SSG MaCullum. He and Scragg's were my senior tech's.

I wanted to say "Thank you" to all that responded to my earlier post.
I am aware of how SFC Schellert passed. I am trying to find out about the person himself. What was he like? Was he a no nonsense type of person? A laid back individual, caring, concerned, etc.. Any information on the person himself would be great.

Terry Spears front middle, can't miss the "birth control" glasses?

Jim Cauthron Monday, May 9, 2016 07:51 PM
Chuck I hate to disagree with you but that can't be Spears because he was an E7 in Darmstadt prior to the company forming in Hanau.

chuck Tuesday, May 10, 2016 07:48 AM
I thought of that after I posted but U have to admit it looks like him. As my Dad once said "don't get old"!

23 Engr Bn ADM departing Hess Homburg Kaserne Hanau, Germany. SFC Kay leading. SSG McCullam, SSG Denney and I are the Sqd Ldr's. We had the shortest distance to travel. We marched out the gate crossed Lamboy Straus and marched into Francois Kaserne. We became the 7th Plt. Eventually growing in size with the addition of more teams. Which was the birth of "The Proud and Rowdy Awesome 7th Platoon."

Michael Tuck Saturday, April 30, 2016 08:33 AM
I thought the 7th Platoon was originally the ADM Platoon from the 317th Engr Bn out of Camp Eschborn - at least that's how I remember it when I arrived in April 1975.

Peter Sunday, May 1, 2016 02:32 PM
Mike,
Remember that the original 7th was broken up and we were dispersed into other platoons. Then, after a few years, they decided to form another 7th platoon.
These young guys, like Ric, never knew about our 7th platoon.

(1515) The Proud and Rowdy 7th platoon training with the 1/32 Armor Bn in Friedberg, Germany. I cannot recall many of the names after almost 40 years. But PSG Purvis is kneeling in front of me. Raymond and Vega are on his left. the other end you see Gene Ariel, Morgen, Harrold and the LT.

(1514) Totally magnificent sunsets and a reminder that solar and nuclear energy both come from the same source.

But the Entanglement theory: If the mass that was radioactive were destroyed during the transfer, would the radiation be destroyed with it or would it simply be freed from the mass and become fallout? Whatever the end result was on the other end, it would be an inert mass as the radioactivity would not be part of its base composition.

The question of nuclear energy isn't whether it's efficient or not, it's what to do with the waste. If a valid and workable solution to what to do with it is reached, but the protests continue then it'd be obvious the argument isn't just about nuclear waste, it's about a nation's nuclear power. That's another type of argument and one that would keep science and progress at a stalemate and deny the world of a real, workable solution to the energy crisis.

American scientists were the ones who first split the atom. At times it's hard to remember that now with all the defamation that goes with atomic energy. And now the question is: No rads, no problem? Or no rads, still the radicals?

Road kill! Road kill!

You got your dead skunk in the middle of the road!

Dead skunk in the middle of the road,

Dead skunk in the middle of the road,

And it's stinking to high heaven!

Yeah, you got your dead cat and you got your dead dog!

On a moonlight night, you got your dead toad frog,

Got your dead rabbit and your dead raccoon,

The blood and the guts, they're gonna make you swoon!

You got your dead skunk in the middle,

Dead skunk in the middle of the road,

Dead skunk in the middle of the road,

Stinking to high heaven!

C'mon, stink!

SFC Schellert was my PSG before I was assigned to the Brigade Inspection Team to work with SFC Pervis. Schellert took over the platoon when "Big P" took over the Brigade Inspection Team. Don Reed was correct. Scehllert's wife said her husband came home sat down in a chair, asked for a drink and died of a heart attack.

(1511) Here's another reason to live on the West Coast. I found the most breathtaking views where I am; not many people here even know about this vantage point. There's a couple caves in this bluff, and there's restaurants above it. One has a staircase leading down into one of the caves, but rarely is there anyone on the promontory where I took this.

Anyway, good lead in. Since the collective ADM minds are so sharp and inquisitive, I have a question: We've all read about the entanglement discoveries; Quantum Entanglement and Quantum physics. It's all over the Web, easy to find. But, if the properties of a particle were transferred and a new, identical particle was created, does any contamination on the particle follow it to the new? As I understand it, the original particle is destroyed in the process, there is no duality once the procedure is finished so there's no redundancy in time.

What if the particle is irradiated? Is the radiation an integral part of the particle, the mass? If not, the radiation wouldn't follow it to the new, it'd be destroyed when the original particle is. It would cease to exist.

The advantage of that is obvious. If this process could be utilized to move large masses, then atomic waste would be obsolete, it'd be a relic like a Model T. Nuclear energy would be the clean, efficient power source that it's supposed to be.

They taught you all of this in ADM school, didn't they? I'm not being farcical here, I'm not cracking jokes. Could this be utilized in the American military machine somehow?

Why, they could bring back the draft and everything now! What a stroke of brilliance. Unless I'm wrong, of course, but it wouldn't matter as conscription would be used again and nothing much matters anywhere then. That's wonderful.

To Chris Hocking, et al regarding SFC Schellert.

I believe Don Reed is correct, that Schellert died of a heart attack after that evening run....was working hard to get more physically fit.
He had been my platoon sergeant - very good NCO - before I was transferred to Darmstadt.

Important:: Looking for a 55G who has worked on interiors of the SADM. One of the guys is battling VA. He was working around wr SADMs. 1 or 2 had split open at the seam and a powder fell out. He was instructed to sweep it up without respirator or protective gear. He now has cancer. Question is :: What was he exposed to????

Email me at chasbell256@gmail.com

Or go to facebook page: 275th Engineer Company:: https://www.facebook.com/groups/368073131851/

(1505) Anyone still around from this era? If so can you provide any more information on this individual and what they did?

Peter, Webmaster Friday, February 19, 2016 03:05 PM
I remember Schellert. I was gone before august in 78, tho.

Don Reed Friday, February 19, 2016 04:29 PM
If I remember correctly, he died of a heart attack after finishing a evening run.
Went on a run got home got a soda sat down in the chair and died.
If that is the guy, that is the story I heard.
but you can rely on Rumor control.

Jim Cauthron Saturday, February 20, 2016 07:28 PM
Schellert and I were on the same team 65-67. He was a Spec5. Curry was the team chief. He married a German girl and rotated to the states. He was a good man, easy going but nobody to mess with.

Bob Marshall Thursday, March 10, 2016 04:52 PM
Schellert ran the in-company ADM school. We had to re-train the new guys coming in from AIT. I painted his name on the door of the school naming it Schellart Hall.

The best times of my military career was when I was a 12E at the 567th Engr. Co. ADM 7th Platoon in Hanau, Fran├žois Kaserne ('80-'82) and 66th Engr. Co. ADM at Ft. Hood ('82-'84). The guys I remember the most was when I was in the "Schulteiss Gang" Oliver's Pizza. "Hey Franco, eine mal bitte" was the favorite drunken request for another Schulteis Beer. The 4th Golden Summertime Fest in Darmstadt in '81 with Bates, Zweibel, and Bothwell just to name a few, was the best concert I had ever attended. Since we couldn't bring in bottles and cans, we filled our bloata bags with Jack Daniels and good German Speitlasse Wine. We were ADM'ers, we always figured a way to bring and consume mass quantities of alchol. That weekend was and still is a blur, but I do remember Bothwell passed out with the concert flyers covering his body and face. Floating down the creek on our blowup mattresses at the campsite and grabbing ahold of the electric fence that was crossing the creek was surely a buzz killer and so funny, especially when we pulled the fence down close to the water and it grabbed ahold of Bates when his drunken wet ass tried to pass underneath of it. It was hysterical and you had to be there to appreciate it. I actually have a picture of me passing a bottle of Jack to Donnie Van Zantz (?) and him holding it up during a song at the concert. We had a toast and shared a drink. That's how close I got to the stage! I'll never forget it. God Bless all of the ADM'ers and their families. Write to my email or leave a message here if you can remember all this. You may also reach me on Facebook. Just type in Rick Murray on the search bar and click on invite.

Don Reed Wednesday, February 17, 2016 10:16 PM
Good times, I was one of the founding members of the "
Schultheiss Gang.
Still remember the minutes of the meeting that use to show up in the inboxes of the different Platoons.
The most memorable thing I remember was the tear gas incident in Wildflecken.
Man we had some good times
