Happy Easter to all of my former comrades from the 317th Eng. Btn. If anyone knows when next reunion will be let me know. God Bless You All.
I was in D company,3rd platoon from 1972 - 1974. It was a great time for me at the ripe old age of 18. As a pvt. I got to spend a lot of time getting to know and clean the tools in my pioneer tool box. It did keep me out of KP duty a lot of times. It was fun to get some experience with a 5 ton truck and bucket loader. One of my best times was attending Explosives and Demo school in Vilseck. It was fun blowing stuff up, but taking the class seriously. SFC Sandoval was a great platoon sergeant, he had a good repoire with the platoon, Anyways, I won’t ramble on anymore. A great learning experience.
I love as stationed in HHC 317th camp Eschborn from about 79-81. Just looking for buddies and fellow soldiers. I was in water point but served as armorer for a good while. I remember some people by name like SSG Cotton and Capt Kanimine, met a lot of good people wish I could remember names. One in particular helped me so much. During a bad time I had there. SGT James or John something.
Hello from Eschborn, remember the camp where tody are furniture warehouses, car dealers etc. As a child we had first contact with your members and learned about baseball, football and the PX.Had been an interesting time. Best Regards Thomas
Was in HHC 317th Eng Bn from 80-82 at Camp Eschborn Germany. I stayed in trouble. Finally got my honorable discharge in June 1982 and went back to NYC. Was in unit supply with a guy named Mullins and another one whose first name was Tom. All I remember was that big inflatable gym and the chicken I used to get from the NCO club. I was there when a guy named Fushee got into a run in in Frankfurt and a local was killed. He was from Philly but when they took him away that night, never saw him again. Heard he was in Mannheim awaiting a trial, but that was it.
Served at Camp Eschborn from 1987-1989. Delta Co. 317th 3rd Platoon 2nd Squad. Delta Dog. Best time of my life 1SG Gary McLaughton, Cpl Merklinger, Sp4 Frazier, Penton, Baca.
I was at Camp Each borne from 74to76 . I had the time of my life ! I was 17yrs. old and the youngest and wildest playboy there ! I had kept my head in straight I would've retired there ! After all these years I'd like to thank to special guys , Sgt. Boykins and my road-dog Sgt.Mc Williams . We were Co.C's finest ! 216-738-6024
