Could we get a roll call of the 7th SFGA guys on here?

You know, I STILL hate the Honduran National Anthem, from those early morning wake-ups outside Santa Rosa de Copan.

I have been out on the Mata Mile the last few days, and I told one of the ladies in the office about the SGM's cutoff down by the bridge.

Oops, hijack in progress!!

No, but a lazy Battalion CSM sure would take the short way home.

I got a note from Jerry as well. He said that he is in touch with Dale and Bob V. (before your time). Emailed JT this week. Mike W. Is back in the box as a contractor, IIRC. Thack is still around here as well, I believe. Get mail from Gary O. regularly. I think Butch is somewhere around here, if anyone cares. You probably know what Mark S. is up to. Joe P. was still in Leavenworth, last I heard, and Tony G. got out, but I have no idea where he is. Opie got put out as well. Tim V. is retired and is an instructor at SWCS. Cisco M. called me one day to complain. Rod called me to ask for a job reference a few years ago. No idea on Bob G. or Big Head.

NousDefionsDoc
01-22-2004, 21:40
I got an email from Bighead just a couple of days ago, said he was going to get back with me and get caught up, but he hasn't yet. I remember Dale. Bob G. and Butch can get bent. LOL

If you would could you PM me Gary's email? I'd like to say hi.

Thack should be here. Funny SOB. So should Poor Little Sick Timmy.

I haven't heard from Mark since he left. Jerry says he hasn't either.

The Reaper

Everyone else is out, or in jail, as we discussed recently.

Welcome aboard!

Please share the story of your first encounter with the Bn CSM, if you wouldn't mind.

I can see myself getting into a position like that and it was hilarious.

Also, would love to see a post on the SFAS/SFQC Forum with your experiences and after you complete SFAUCC, a down and dirty on that for those who haven't been through it.

You have a differing perspective on it from me, and I would like to know what you honestly think about the training.

Glad to have you here.

So no shit, there I was ...

It was like 0530 and I was looking for a parking spot. My Team Sergeant had warned me about making sure I looked for the "designated" parking spots before I pissed someone off. So, it's still dark and raining and I'm hopelessly driving around for a spot somewhat closer to the company.

[For those that don't know, 3rd Bn's area has been under construction for some time, so we have a lot less parking spots than anyone else]

So, I see this great parking spot just in front of the BC's spot and I look around for a painted sign but see nothing [unbeknownst to me, the water had pooled on the ground where the CSMs parking spot sign was painted, so all the dirt and mud obscured it]. So, I park there and pat myself on the back for my lucky find ... and soooo close to the company too!

Well, as I get back from a PT run with the team, I see some "knucklehead" walking away from having just parked his vehicle which is now blocking my car. So, I tell the Team Sergeant that I'll see him later and walk over to "confront" this guy. Well, as I walk towards my vehicle, he begins to walk away from it (kind of pissed off, I might add). I see this yellow note on my windshield. I take and read it and it reads the following: "Sir, you may one day park in the Battalion Commander's spot, but you have long ago thrown away the opportunity to park in mine!!! Come see me!!! Signed BN CSM" My brain begins to process the information ... "Who the fuck is BN CS ... Oh My God!!!" Well, by this time, the BN CSM noticed that it was my vehicle and he approached me. Well, long story short, I appologized - a lot - and he told me that it's happened before because many people don't see the sign. He also offered me to come by his office to chat sometime. It turned out OK ... and that was my first day on an ODA. :)

This, from a man who painted a smiley face on his bare ass and posed bent over behind the CSM's desk with the CSM's very own beret perched on the small of his back and had a photo taken for the CSM's farewell gift.

Where was the "adult leadership"?

The Team Sergeant was bent over beside him with the Battalion Commander's beret on HIS ass for the photo!

Well, the CSM WAS an idiot. Wonder why those guys didn't like us?

I think I have a copy of that pic around here somewhere....

NousDefionsDoc
01-24-2004, 14:20
LOL - Top Secret Op that one was. Calling that man an idiot is being kind.

Remember when they tried to hit his rental car with the bundle drop in Arizona?

Same CSM when I reported to Group. So Group sends me to Battalion. The Company areas were in a different AO. I report in to Battalion, meet the BC, then get a briefing from CSM Idiot. When I walk outside, there's an E7 waiting there to take me to the company. Now remember, I came out of the 82nd and was a Buck Sergeant at the time, a 1LT or SSG was next to GOD. I was still nervous from having actually spoken to a LTC and a CSM, and now an E7 is picking me up? So this SFC says
"What's up Doc, welcome to 7th Group, heard some about you."
"Roger that Sergeant!"
"Did you get briefed by the CSM?"
"Roger that Sergeant!"
"Forget everthing that idiot said."
"Roger that Sergeant!"
"Three more things. My name is Jerry. You call me Sergeant again and we're gonna have a problem. #2, stop yelling, I'm not deaf. And #3, grow some hair, you look like a Marine. Let's go."
"Roger that Sergeant!"

CSM. D. C. was Gp. SGM. Running the MM one morning and caught up with D. I had forgotten he had just gotten out of Womack. Doc's had fixed his knees from too many standing landings and then flipped him over and fixed his 'rroids.

We were runing along together and I kept increasing the pace and D. hung in there on the run.

I got cleaned up,ate and went to work. S-3 SGM came in where I worked and ask did I run that morning with the Gp. CSM. Yep i sure did we had a good run!!

My SGM said he had can down and ask what ny name was because he couldn't rember, and you tell that long legged MOFO
if he catch's me again just keep on running.

My mile time way back then was 5:15-5:45,with boots and 'tigue pants.

They were all fine guys. The "class clown" on the team was SSG Herbert. He, like me, was from Louisiana (a cajun) so the correct pronunciation of his name was "A-Bear."

He would always try and come up with some excuse not to go to the woods, so the standing joke was:

Q. "Does a bear shit in the woods?"
A. "No, cause "A-Bear" don't go to the woods!"

For those who appreciate cajun language and grammar, here's another:

A New Orleans teacher is testing her students.

Teacher: "Boudreaux, what dat Dan'l Boone kill hisself?"

Boudreux: "Teacha, dat Dan'l Boone kill hisself a Cajun!"

Teacher: "No No, Dan'l Boone kill hisself a bear."

Thanks CSB! It's different to hear Tom called Capt. I met him after he was a Col.

In '88 he had to face down a group of wives and tell them the guys weren't going to be redeployed back home in time for Christmas. He did it though, and without flinching.

Even after he was out of the military the job he took allowed him to look out for soldiers. He's a real good guy as far as I'm concerned.

"I have been out on the Mata Mile the last few days, and I told one of the ladies in the office about the SGM's cutoff down by the bridge."

Don't know your story about the SGM "cutoff" but we used to use it when we were ordered to edge the sidewalks at the Main PX, (now the MiniMall) after PT when we had scheduled training. Just increased the running pace....

Finally got around to signing up. Some of you already know me. Hello TR and CRad. For those that don't I spent my time in 7th, 1st SOCOM, SWC and JOTC.
I like guns, knives and long paddles in the moonlight. I don't like sun, sand and no see ums. I won't post often, as I usually don't have much to say. I've been out of the business for a long time, but I still enjoy keeping up with what's going on.

Rob F, Ft Davis Dec '84 - Dec '87

Fun times:
La U, listening to Makoto H talk of RPGs crossing the sky, cows stepping on mines.
San Sal, on the 4th floor of the US embassy during el gran terremoto of '96.
Sniper school run by the door busters, when 3 aggressors tried to cut off my sniper team by helocasting into the canal 20 ft from shore with full LCE and weapons. 2 of them survived.
JJ trying to drown me in the pool to get me ready for Key West.
Drinking all night in Colon with Jim S, then Carlos and Dan, PT monsters, running us until we puked it all up.
Comayagua, Palmerola, Le Ceiba, Tamara, and Tegucigalpa!
Bolivia with the Condores!
Going to Jumpmaster school 3 times... I hate hanging in the door!
Hunting bugs in Key West.
JR talking on Ham radio about his girlfriend in San Sal, while his wife listened on her own rig back home at Ft Davis.
Kindle Liberty, when Dan H says "Lets recon that mountain top, it's just 'right over there'. We'll be back in a few hours". He staggers back into camp 2 days later.
Battery Pratt, underground for a month at a time.
Operation Raleigh.
Water jumps in Gatun Lake, the best jumps ever!
UDT trunks, black t-shirts, baseball caps, sneakers... the best uniform ever.
Coming back from 6 months TDY to find 2 inches of water and mold-covered walls in my room at Coco Solo.

CSM Childress was the 8th Grp SGM back then.
Ft Randolf and Battery Pratt are not so fond memories
Chepo and Camp Cimmeron were better AO’s
I agree, jumping into Gatun lake was the best (unless you hit the tree stumps)
The Playboy Lounge, the 61 Club, the Florida and the Siboney in Colon were never closed or off limits
The LCM trips to Empire Range for annual quals.
Chasing snakes of my radios in the morning to make commo.

His son had been Force Recon for a number of years before coming to the Q(did it to piss off dad, but then he got tired of never having funding or new gear), so he took it in stride. (Of course, he and his friends thought it was one of those "he was tough on us, this is all in good fun" type scenarios...it wasn't until after he graduated that everyone found out it was more along the lines of a seething hatred)

Nothing wrong with them. Evo is kicking them out. Something about them actually interrupting the flow of coca leaf to Brazil or some such. Follows his accusation of the ambassador for spying- I think. When we were there Evo was just a congressman- albeit one that called for his constituents to kill Americans and police, as I recall.

Nooooo Evo today made a broad statement today saying we killed some farmers during the uprising "DEA Agents Killed them" He would not give dates, location or anything to support his rantings. As of today All DEA has until 29 Jan 09 to be out of country. Lets see if it happens.:munchin

I link up with some old team mates in North Dakota every year. Last December I heard the same story about Rod. A motrorcycle accident in Thailand. I heard he was with CA at the time.

Thanks for the info. Rod and I were in the 1/509th at Vicenza IT in ther late 70's. We had some good times, the beach in the summer, the mtns skiing in the winter. I ran into him here at bragg years later and was suprised he to went through the Q course. Good for him. I didn't know he went to CA though.

Yeah, I'd heard from Bobby about what happened with Jesse - how's that for some crazy business? Good to hear that CSM K is still around. Ian D now a CPT you say? I should be back to 7th as a CPT as soon as I navigate my way back through the Q-course. Branch has me templated for the course from APR '09 to MAR '10, but I think that's the generic timeline. I certainly hope they won't expect me to redo SUTs, language, and SERE. Best wishes to you and the rest of the guys who are still "livin' the dream" there in GRP.

I completed the 91B course and got my "S" April 18th, 1969 and reported to "B" company, 7th SFG, 1st SF (ABN) the next morning. Not much ceremony in those days. You got your flash and had it sewn on the beret you wore all through training. After all that, you had a real good shrink fit. There used to be a sign in our dispensary that reminded you on proper beret wear - always tilt it opposite the way your balls hang. After the mandatory re-enlistment "chat" I returned to civilian life in 1971.

You know, it's incredible, but I just took a look at my contributions to this thread (2 posts) and they were written months after I arrived for my first assignment at 7th SFG. It has been exactly six years since that day now (I got to 7th SFG on October 2003; my posts here were a few months later). I spent just four months shy of five years in Group and I'm just months away from returning (believe me, I dream of the day I walk back in with that red flash on my beret).

It's amazing! I feel so honored and fortunate to have served with such heroes on a daily basis and I'm just so excited to be afforded the opportunity to do so again. A lot has happened since I first walked into the B/3/7 ops room for assignment to a team. I traveled to some terrific places, conducted some challenging missions, went to combat and actually fought alongside the men. We saw men do some really heroic and amazing things and we also saw some men die. I helped recover our dead on the battlefield and experienced a total of nine memorial services at the FOB.

But, I look back and I feel so fortunate. In a way, being a Special Forces Soldier was nothing like I thought it would be - it was way better for it was a priviledge to serve with such elite men. Earlier today I was trying to rate all the fellow officers that served with me when I was a team leader and, later, an XO in combat. I was just thinking about them and I tried to figure out how they stacked-up. I could not rate them; they were all excellent officers and I brag about them when I can - they were amazing! I feel the same about the NCOs.

Before typing this thread, I went back and looked at the posts I wrote here six years ago. I was so different back then. I'm glad you guys put this forum together.

jack,

I think we have a few "old timers" from your era here. I'm about 6 years after you - 8th, not 7th.

He was talking "coin check" - as in Challenge Coin. It was around then - mostly 10th from what I hear. I wasn't really very aware of it until in the 12th Group in the USAR.

Welcome...

I;m just about 10 years or so behind you myself. Loads of "coin checks" are behind me and I have been caught a time or two.

When someone pulled out there coin and slammed it on the bar/table or flipped it in the air an it hit the floor...a very distinct sound...your job was to take yours out to show you had one. If you did not have one...oh my...you owed those that produced a coin a beer.

Not a good thing to be in the GB Parachute Club and not have your coin. All the Groups have a coin.

It use to be if you went to the shower you better have it with you. I took and made a slit in my shower shoes for a coin...that way I was covered. I;ve even been hit with a coin check standing on the ramp at 12,500 feet...:D Oh yea..kept one under my altimeter pillow.

I was in the 7th in 1969 and again, after a year in the 5th in Viet Nam, in 1971 and 1972. Served in B Company for both tours. SGM Fred Davis was the BBMFIC.

31542, back then, we trained, we demonstrated at Gabriel, and we picked up pine cones and then put them back, we swept the streets at Bragg and did anything that need doing just to keep the Special Forces Groups operational, it didn't matter what your rank was you just took off your blouse and accomplished the mission.

Carried a "challenge coin" then and still carry one.

what is a group coin?
how do I find a list of the 7thSFG, E company that served in Dom.Rep in '65)
