DEAN,

THANKS FOR THIS WEB SITE.WE HAVE A LOT OF PICTURES AND HISTORY OF THE 3RD BN 71ST ADA,AND TO HAVE AN ACCOUNT OF CHARLIE BATTERY FOR THE PERIOD 1959-1961 IS ESPECIALLY EXCITING. IT REQUIRED A LOT OF WORK AND COMPUTER SKILLS ON YOUR PART TO PUT ALL THIS TOGETHER. IT'S AMAZING THAT AFTER FIFTY YEARS YOU HAVE BROUGHT THIS INTERESTING SITE TO THE INTERNET AND MADE IT AVAILABLE TO THE GUYS WHO SERVED DURING THAT TIME.

FIFTY YEARS TAKES US BACK TO THE TIME WHEN WE WERE YOUNG WITH HIGH ENERGY AND SOMETIMES DO SOMETHING A LITTLE CRAZY.

I REMEMBER A FUNNY THING THAT HAPPENED TO CHARLIE BURGESS AND GERALD TYNE. THEY WENT TOGETHER AND BOUGHT AN OLD GERMAN CAR. ONE DAY THEY WITH TO GERMAN GUYS WERE DRIVING THROUGH THE COUNTRY AND WERE DRIVING TO FAST FOR ROAD CONDITIONS RAN UP ON A CURVE AND COULDN'T MAKE THE TURN,RAN OFF THE ROAD HIT AN APPLE TREE AND KNOCKED THE APPLES OUT OF THE TREE. THE OLD GERMAN FARMER SUED BURGESS FOR THAT CROP OF APPLES.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE '08 REUNION IN BRANSON SWAPPING STORIES. SOME OF THE GUYS TOLD SOME TALL ONES.

I WILL VISIT YOUR SITE OFTEN HOPING TO FIND A NOTE FROM SOME OF THE GUYS.

BEST WISHES BILL GRIFFIN

I served in "C" Battery in 1959-60. I have a lot of fond memories of Germany.

Nice site you did a great job. When I was there in 59 and 60 the supply room was on the first floor , I was the supply clerk. The PX was on the second floor and the tailor was on the third floor. A bunch of us get together at a 3rd Msl 71st Arty reunion in Branson Mo every 2 years. Next one is in Nov 2010, last one we had over 15 guys just from C Battery from the years 59-61. Again nice job.
