Name: Dominic Dominello
EmailAddress: iggels@msn.com
Remarks: I couldn't help but notice that all of the guests in the log are relative youngsters. I served at Fort Bliss, Texas, from 1959 to 1961, in the 200th Ordnance Detachment as a Radar Repairman (MOS 253.1, for almost three (3) years. There were fifty (50) of us then, both Officers and Enlisted Men (EM). I was an EM, and when I left the Army, in 1961, I was an SP5 (E-5). Approximately 90% of the outfit were draftees, and the 10%, including me, were Regular Army (RA). We were one hell of an outfit in those days, and when we weren't at work, or on duty, you could find most of us in good ol WAZOO, drinking dime Cruz Blancas and twenty-five cent Cuba Libres, at the Manhattan Bar. I can still remember the bartender's name, it was Jesus Hasso (Chuey) to us. In those days, we trained a lot of NATO troops; that is, Italians, Germans (West), Turks, French, and Greeks. We also drank a lot of booze with those same troops, when we were off-duty. Anyhow, before I really run off at the mouth, it sure would be great to hear from some of the guys I served with, guys like Alan Desenberger, Tom Page, Woody Wright, and my old cubicle mate, Jim Maseros. . . . . those were the days my friend! . . . . those were the days!!!

Name: Phillip H. Schearer
EmailAddress: PSchearer (at-sign) Earthlink (dot) Net
Remarks: The Herc was one of many "special weapons" we supported in the 619th Ordnance Co. at North Point Kaserne, Germany. I recently learned North Point was deactivated years ago, lay abandoned for some while, and is now a Bundeswehr site. I was there for the height of the Cold War, arriving in time for the Berlin Wall Crisis, receiving yellow fever shots for the Cuban Missile Crisis, and having my commander-in-chief killed by an ex-Marine Commie, all the time knowing that our kind of site was number 3 in Soviet nuclear targeting priorities. Having enlisted at age 17 and spending two intense years in the middle of the German woods, I consider that North Point is where I grew up.

I would like to contact some of these folk. I missed meeting you as I went in the airforce in the end of summer of 1970. have now retired and now help run an electronics and communications museum... and yes we are looking for radar stuff for the museum!
