[living in] church hill tn 37642 /62-/64

. Darragh, Shaun, Crewman, served with SP4 Michaud, SP4 Kalbe, PFC Deane, SSG Caverly, SSG Boatwright, fellow crewmen Alvarez, Monzon, Brooks, Wilkes, Duffy, host of others I'll remember, Dog Handlers, Bobbydean Hill, CPL Mays, Larry Love, Larry Boehme (both from Iowa), SSG Dube. Moved to HHB in late 63, ran into old C Btry member Tom Harvey from Fort Kent, reenlisted Special Forces in '65, ran into then LT Harvey at Benning (jump school) and again as CPT Harvey at Fort Bliss in 1969.

One of 2 best units I served in in 27 1/2 years of service. We could get on each others nerves, and often did, but if anyone screwed with one "Pit Rat", you screwed with all of us and we were going to come looking for you. We had old school NCOs, ranging from O'Hara, a WWII 82nd Abn vet with 3 combat jumps, to SSG (E-5, yes) Hornback, a crusty Korea Marine. Warrant was Mr. Boldt, a Korean war ranger. Sad to say, neither the IFC nor the HHB had the same esprit d'corps. Maybe it was the savage winters and isolated location. Right out of "Northern Exposure". You had to have been there to understand.

    . De Luco, Ronald, Custodian, E-4. For the most part, custodians were an unknown entity early in 63. Our duties were to maintain federal custody of Nuclear weapons for the Federal Govt.. We oversaw assembly and maintained custody of the arming plugs for the missiles. When we were assigned to the sites, there were no mess halls nor were our perdiem allowances on our pay. (Custodians were to live and eat separately from the other people on the site, usually National Guard or foreign troops who manned the equipment. as told to Ed Thelen)

    Our sergeant, being resourceful, scrounged the mess halls for any surplus they could spare. We bought our bread from day old outlets. With a hot plate we cooked whatever our Sergeant could scrounge for us. Generally eggs, butter, some bread, large sausages like bologna etc., (for which we had another expression), cheese, bacon, just anything any mess hall could spare.

    Sarge immediately called headquarters and explained our dilemma and got a refrigerator shipped out and arranged for a stove to be installed. We all chipped in and bought our bread, and common cook wear, pot, pans etc.. We all bought a knife, fork, spoon, a large jar of peanut butter and a large jar of jam. We all had our corner of the locker and our corner of the refrigerator. It was while stationed at this site, that I met my future wife. She was teaching school at the near-by town of Waltz. - 2430 Galbreth Rd. Pasadena Ca 91104

    . Hewitt, Philip, Warhead Custodian 24U. I was assigned to Carlton MI after graduation from Launcher Maintenance School.

Most of us held part time jobs in the community. I was married here in Aug '69, bought my first motorcycle (1969 Triumph Bonneville) here and generally enjoyed myself. I left in December of 1970 to go to Wiesmoor, FRG as a warhead custodian and exclusion area guard. This would be my last assignment in the ADA. In 1971 I reuped for SATCOM school and left for Ft. Monmouth NJ in June of 1971. 244 Delynn Dr, Hazel Green, AL 35750 02/69-12/70

I remember a guy named Stafsholtz (spelling?) who would get so wasted he could hardly drive thru the gate with both gates open. Man that guy could snore! Once we carried him, bunk and all out of the barracks and left him outside for the night. I spent about three years at Herc sites in Darmstadt(A/1/67) and Pirmasens (C/2/56)in Germany.
