Damn. Blast from the past. I still have the old foot locker that Banks left in the barracks with a note on it saying it was his after we got back. I snagged it and took it home when nobody was looking. It's sitting next to my couch right now. I remember Slope --called that because of his forehead.

Barber (Bar0871)!!! I was also in Bravo Troop 2nd Plt. You and I were fresh out of basic when we went over. SSG Banks was our Bradly Commander. Smitty was our gunner and Slope was our driver. I was the 5th member of 525 ( Bavarian Battalac). I was the one that took the blast of the two TOW missiles.
