Stationed at Camp Eschborn 1984 -1986. A Co. Arrived at Camp Eschborn New Year's Eve in "84 and was shown around downtown Frankfurt during the festivities by a fellow in HHC Co. I had no idea the Europeans celebrated New Years like that! I had a great time and was very gungho, but had to leave the Army early due to family issues at home. Now a big part of me regrets that decision but it still was in family's best interest. I had a good time with nearly everyone. I still remember Hamby (from Georgia) and myself catching the guy who came under the fence while on guard duty and we had to carry empty M-16s at the time. We faked it good! I was (am) a smaller fellow and got assigned the M-60 and later the 5-ton dump truck, but neither without resistance because of my size. We had great leadership to include Fredie Hargraves who I see has left an entry.
