I am a proud Delta Dawg from 1987 to 1989. I served with 3rd plt 1st Sqd under Jose Melendez. My team leaders were Will Rackcliff and Cpl Bowie. I don't know if I ever knew his first name other than Corporal. It was my distinct pleasure to have met up with Rack at Gettysburg Battlefield last summer. It was really good seeing him. I am kind of sorry that I didn't have the opportunity to go to war with this distinguished group of folks. I have no doubt that it would have been memorable. We trained hard and we partied hard, and we made it through in one piece thanks to our great NCOs. Especially our First Sergeant, First Sergeant Mac.

Served with the 317th from 1999 to 2002 on Kelly Hill. I was first assigned to 1st Plt in B Co as an ACE operator for six months. Move to HHC and served the rest of my term there as the Unit Armorer. While our group to dislike Peter Gabriel's "sledgehammer" because Brigade always played it after PT was done, I enjoyed my time with the Buffalo Battalion, with the many great soldiers, NCOs, and officers within the battalion.

While I did not serve with the 317th, I served many of you dinner at our apartment. (Spc. Gary DeLong) We are divorced now, but I have many memories and pictures of everyone. Many of you came by to play cards or get a home-cooked meal, or just to play with out children. (then 3, now 4 and 6 grandkids!) Gary sent me a video while in SA, and a few of the troops are in the video as well. The video was just before Spc. Crask and PFC Rush were lost. Crask used to babysit for us so we could go daning. My kids remember Sgt Ray Bradbury, Bill Gillespie (I forget his rank), and Bob (??). I wish I could remember his last name. He had 2 dogs that used to latch onto a big railroad tie and he could carry them around like that. Anyway, I just happened to stumble across your site nad wanted to say THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SERVICE AND DEDICATION TO YOUR COUNTRY AND TO EACH OTHER. God bless you all. Love, Tracy Perry (FKA DeLong)

My service with the 317th ENG BN @ Camp Eschborn Germany was from 1989-1991 until the closing. I was in Charlie and Delta Company. Some of us went to Fort Stewart, while others went to Fort Benning. I went to Fort Stewart. I am excited about this up coming reunion, and I look forward to reuniting with each and everyone of you.
