1) Some senior NCOs are nothing more than bootlickers, who sing the "Army of One" song to their superior officers everyday. Commanders need to hear the good, bad and the ugly, and then be given good solid recommendations. They need their senior NCOs to be TRAINERS. LEAD BY EXAMPLE. DO as the troops do. LEAD FROM THE FRONT. GET IN THE DIRT. This bullshit of "I have done that" is garbage. What you are doing now is what counts. Quit worrying about your next assignment. Focus on your mission now. Your mission is to train soldiers for war, and it's damned hard work. If you do it right you will leave the Army in worse shape physically than when you came in. BE HARD BUT FAIR. You must have MORAL COURAGE.

He lived #1 and I can personally attest to this. During every cycle, he ran with many of the patrols, even during the winter phases. He was the NCOIC, thus it would have been easy for him to rely on his staff and not have gone out so much, but he did. One late night I watched him strap a ruck onto his front side while carrying a ruck on his back after a student went down as a result of a twisted ankle. He did this while on the final portion of a graded 2 day patrol. He humped those two rucks for the rest of the night though 3-5 inches of snow. Thus he really did walk the talk.

That Reunion

Did that reunion that was mentioned in this thread ever execute? I wish I would have known about this site earlier. I live half the year up in Hamburg with my future wife. If it got delayed till this year would also like to know. Maybe I can spirit my butt out of Hungary and show up.

There are a bunch of former 10th guys and attachments that make a ski trip to Europe every year and base out of Gaissach. They stay at that Gasthof mentioned earlier but I don't recall the name. I keep meaning to make it but work gets in the way.

If you are ever in the Toelz area stop by die alte Kaserne for a Weissbier at the Gaststaette zur Flint Kaserne which lies in the area where the NCO Academy used to be. It was cool to drink one more there.

Al,

first of all: Welcome !

I was suggesting a reunion thing, but so far it didn't happen. Would be great to see some 10th guys down here again.

Let me know when you get in the area ! Would be great to have a beer or two and talk about the days...

Mike

Al,

the "bissle spät" gives away your time in BB...

Skiing in GAP, nice ! I like what they did with the Hotel and everything down there. Since I quit skiing about 15 years ago I only see GAP in summertime when I ride my motorcycle around the Zugspitze and into Tyrol (for the cheap gas... LOL).

Sag mir Bescheid wenn Du im Sommer hier bist ! Wir können dann ein Bier trinken gehen.

Am Freitag fliege ich nach Wichita, KS. um einen alten Freund von der Polizei dort zu besuchen.

Viele Grüsse !

Mike

Yeah, spent a couple of years in BB too!

We didn't stay in the Edelweiss. We stayed in a Gasthaus in Wallgau. I didn't even go check it out. The new Seilbahn on the Hausberg was interesting though. Got rid of the old big cabins and got a bunch of little ones.

Al,

I didn't even know they put new cabins on the Seilbahn there... I know the aerial tramway, but never took a closer look at it. LOL

Al,

Mike here, your new neighbor in Budapest. The family is going to Garmisch in December for some rest and skiing. My daughter is on her second year of snowboarding so she should enjoy the AO. Come up and see us sometime as I really get tired of driving to your location

I have great memories of Toelz and Bavaria. I hope one of these days I'll be able to visit the area again. I know all the changes that have happened to Flint Kaserne.
I learned to ski on the Spitzing in Neuhaus and brown baggers hill Flint Kaserne, ski patrolled on the Brauneck and in Garmisch. Went to Munich American High School (50's) every day on the train. Then I joined the Army and went back (60's) to the 10th for several years. Great times in Toelz and Lenggris.

My last trip to Tölz was in 1988 for the 35th reunion. I hope to make a trip there this fall and get a first hand look at the way a piece of History was destroyed.

Ich, die Frau und Tochter kommen im August nach Bad Toelz.

When things get locked in I will get you my Deutsche Vodaphone Handynummer.

We're looking for a Ferienwohnung in area (Toelz, Lengries, Bad Heilbrunn, usw). Got any reccomendations of a reasonably priced place?

During the day I will be teaching the daughter rockclimbing... Assuming I can still lug this old butt up the rocks... I am sure we could hook up for a Bier oder zwei auch. You going to be around?

Al,

roger that last. Ich bin im August hier, bis auf ein Wochenende (8.-10. August), da bin ich in Münster auf dem Black Mustang Club Treffen.

Sehr gut, ich habe auch ein deutsches Vodafone Telefon, the minutes are cheaper then.

As for a Ferienwohnung in Tölz/Lengries/Bad Heilbrunn area, I will check with my local contacts there and let you know by PM what I have investigated. What's the exact timeframe we are looking at ?

We will definitely hook up for a beer, oder zwei, oder drei. Ich bringe vielleicht meine Frau mit, als designated driver. Not smart to drive a 370hp Mustang after a couple of Weißbier... LOL

Mike
