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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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!!

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,

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

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.

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.
