    Do you know any of these guys? They were heavy junk. I know some of the names. The pictures were taken at Ft Drum for Cold Weather Training. The one with three guys. Left is Chief (a native American what else). I never knew his real name. Everybody called him "Chief", middle Stanley Byrn, Right- Kaliavis. The other picture is of a monopoly game (One of these would erupt into a fist fight). The only one I can remember in this picture is the big Corporal sitting second from right. We called him Opie, I think his last name started with an H and he was from Indiana. The one closest to the window was a Sgt. The third black&white shows the heavy junk lot in the background. These guys were all 8th ESB and the year was 1979. Do you remember a large chested WM? She was heavy junk and was a joy to behold. She was the only WM that I ever saw in a working MOS.

    No, but if they were there at French Creek, we ran into one another, or Heavy E use to dig our fuel holders.

    Gunny L, what month did you arrive on Okinawa. I also was with WES 27 there, we were billieted out of Camp Bulter, but worked at Futima. I was with SSgt Moore at Camp Schwab. I believe the WO name was Wood. I left a many good men behind when I left.
