Re: Lee Barracks
- Hi,my name is Jim Dannegger and I served at the "animal farm". Nov 69-Jul 71. I was with 1rst.Bn.59th Arty. We were an air defense unit, with the Vulcan 20mm. cannon, and the Chapparel missile system, mounted on APC chassis. Looks like I am the oldest from Lee barracks so far. I am wondering if anyone had ever heard of my unit?
- I heard that the guy was from C 3/68thFrom: The Groovemaster General of the United States <bukama@...>

It's been so long ago. I don't remember whether the stolen tank was from 5/68 or 3/68.
Guess it was a great idea to keep the firing pins in the Arms Room, eh? Can you imagine that idiot running through Mannheim with a combat load of ammo AND the firing pin in place? That could have gotten REAL ugly.
