HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL
Just received my late Father’s DD Form 256a he served in the Company C 2nd battalion 87 infantry, Seventh Army in mannheim germany at Sullivan barracks in 1964 and 1965. Not sure if it was mountain division back then. This his a picture of him back then. Wondering if anyone may have served with him. His name is William Gross
I was going thru some old boxes of photos and such and found my Battalion Coin. I thought this was long lost.
Are these soldiers still in Louisiana? Haven’t heard from mine in awhile. Wondering if anyone has information about their return to Fort Drum?
Anyone have any information on these soldiers. Are they still at Fort Polk, Louisiana? When are they returning to Fort Drum?
It was great to run into some young catamounts at the education fair. Brought back some great memories.I was also proud that the memory of my soldiers SGT Green and Sgt Evans were not forgotten. Please let me know if this former Catamount can help anyone of you with your educational needs. Former Apache 3-7 OEF 3-4 Ghazni Provence and OEF 6-7 Lawara, FOB Tillman.
