From Placido "Wop" Borruso, "B" Trick, Co A
- Another great shot of "the
church", San Antonio Cathedral.
- "Fat" Mike Powers final day in
Ethiopia. Feb. '68. Not many guys had a "Bar Hostess" see them off.
- June 1968, just before going to
the Airport to see Jerry Wilkinson and Steve Popko off to the USA. I don't
know who's car I'm standing on, but Popko's Grossmobile is the one behind me.
The double window in the upper left corner is the 2 man room that I share with
- June 1968, at the Airport.
Farewell to Wilk and Popko (not pictured)-both PFC's when leaving Asmara
(although they were SP/4's at one time). Their departure made Maddog and me the
last of the original "A Trick" Gross Guys.
- PFC's Jerome B. Wilkinson and Steven S. Popko, the original
"Men in Black" enjoying their last Melotti Beer in the
lounge at the Asmara Airport. It was Athens, Rome and Home!
- Harry Osteen and my good buddy "Danny
Dog" taken in January 1967, Company D, Fort Devens, Mass. We were still in
05K school at this time and I had just taken over the "dog handling"
responsibilities from Champagne. I loved that slobbering Mascot. He kept me off
of Fire Watch & KP.
- A rare picture of ASA Webmaster
"Cactus Mike" (aka Maddog) Doran "riding tall in the saddle" taken in
July/August 1968. The two heads to the left are Merle Busic and Mike Andersson.
I can't find the one of me riding backwards; being a city boy, I put the wrong
foot in the stirrup and ended up facing the business end of the horse.
