I was at Eschborn from November 1968 until February 1971. Started out in company B and then transferred to ADM. I'm the one that had the Honda 450 motorcycle...wasn't supposed to own it but I let all the officers ride it and then it was "ok". Like to hear from anyone that was there back then.

Co. A armorer from 68-70. Had great friends as Mike Mcduffee, Steve Knutson and Owen Martin. Lived in Frankfurt with my wife and had to take the U-bauhn every morning to catch a ride with Eddie Pugh. Do not miss 1st. Sgt. Leak telling me to pass the I-G inspection for the arms room or would make me stay for three more years.

I was in A Company from Aug 1966 to Dec 1967. I was one of the company clerks. There was SP4 Peter Montemurno and me, PFC Douglas -- I was SP5 by the time I rotated. I joined the reserves in in 1981 and retired as CW5. None of my experiences can compare to the 317th.
