I'm not kidding, the Bratwurst they served was this big...!

As Ron remembers, the man on the left was a Bravo Section Crewman, a really great guy and a draftee from Elizabeth, New Jersey, But unfortunately, he can't remember his name, so if anyone knows his, or any other unidentified personnel, please let us know. It takes all of us...!

The guy in the middle in a Class A uniform is Mark Bates, an Alpha section crewman who heading for Battalion to muster out.

And of course, yours truly is on the right. The two of us in our Class B khakis were waiting for the bus to Rhein-Main for our first ASP trip to Crete.
