I remember that the S3A was a good-looking woman who recently graduated from the University of Southern California, where she played in the band. She decided she wanted to marry Lt "Dissolute Habits" and no one in the battalion could change her mind. The two of them were later assigned to Quantico. The marriage fell apart after only four months.

I was with 7th comm as a wireman (2512)when Major John Cole was the CO of HQBN. He was one of the best officers I ever met in my entire tour.

I was just looking through my military records and realized that you signed my corporal promotion paper work on the 1st of May 1982. I do remember you. I am the one who repainted the Camoflage Battalion sign in front of the Battalion Headquarters Building. Semper Fi

I served with 7th Comm. Bn. throughout 1982 and participated in the "Team Spirit" exercise at Taegu, Korea that winter. While serving in the MUX Platoon (Multi-channel mobile radio communications) my platoon commander was 1st Lt. Rawlings, second in charge was Gysgt. Dukakis, later W.O. Smith took over for Lt. Rawlings.

I remember the night the two were arrested. We in Motor T watched in disbelief as NCIS and the MPs arrested him and searched his locker and "Cube". I too have fond memories of Hansen.

Lance it has been 31 years and I still remember your big meat head. You, Rybak and some guy that wore pantyhose to weave his hair, gave me the boot treatment when I arrived in Dec 82. I remember as well when Dietrich killed the Taxi driver, who turned out to be the Governor of Kin-Ville's brother

I was in 7th Comm. Bn. at camp Pendleton [ Camp Horno ] And I was in the7th Comm. group that went to Okinawa In 1960 And we was at camp Kinser And all of are trucks and equipment was at Camp Hanson This was before nam. started. We was the only Comm. Co. I am told on Okinawa at this time. I just wondered If there are any old timers back then still around. Would like to hear from you.

I joined was assigned in May of 1982 in Motor Transport. Yes the equipment was worn out but let's be honest. I was 18 and the newest truck we had was rebuilt in the mid 1960s. I showed up just in time for a PFT. Acclimation time... three days. My first truck was an M35 number 370965. My last truck was the M49 number 393063. I was reassigned in 1984 to 1st Tanks.

Served as Supply Officer, '74-'75 or thereabouts. Surprised at your making public the negative opinions of those serving in 7th Comm both prior and after you. Thought those words were unwarranted as those men and women had no recourse for rebuttal and their families would be offended if they read your comments. The generalities as to the condition of the junior officers reflected poorly on the Corps as a whole and I am sure many would have preferred those comments stricken. I still believe in the "praise in public, criticize in private" as the way to go. Was amazed at the breadth of equipment 7th Comm had in its inventory. Have to believe you wrote this after retiring as higher ups would have something to say if they saw such detrimental views of the Corps made public.
