My Old Chrysler

Throwback Thursday, anyone?

This is my main ride from when I was stationed at Panzer Kaserne, Böblingen, West Germany with 1st Infantry Division (foward), A co, 3-34 Armor.

She's an M1 (IP).  That means M1A1 armor and bustle rack, 105mm gun.

This was taken not long before we upgraded to the M1A1 (HA).

  2. Hey Angus;

    And I was at Cooke Barracks in Geoppingen. We probably were in Germany the same time , I was in Geoppingen from 1886 to 1987 before I went to Stuttgart from late 1987 to 1991.

    1. 3-34 had 19D's? I did not know that. I thought all the Cav-Scouts on post were with 1/4 Cav across the way from us there. We inherited their 19E's when they shifted to M3 not-Bradleys.

      1-16 was the gruntfrunty on the other side of the post and I will die a happy Thag if I can remember the engineer unit.
