Chico was in Coburg, at first it was C-Troop,
6th Cav, later it became the l4thA/C, he was than in I Co, 3rd BN
l4thA/C. He thinks it was l949 when it was changed to the l4th., the whole unit moved from Coburg to Friedberg
and than on to Bad Hersfeld. We left Bad Hersfeld in l952 and came right back to the same l4thA/C in November
of l956 after spending a few years in Alaska.
His CO,s name in Coburg was first Lt J.G. Smith, he retired as a Major General. They also had a Lt Oscar
Paget, Lt. Campbell, Lt. Wright, Lt. Green.
We had been told that Gen. Smith will be at the I.Co reunion in Williamsburg, Va, May 4-7.2000. Henry says, if he
feels well enough he would like to meet with all his old friends one more time. Last year we had 26 of the guys
that had been together since Coburg, it will be more this year.
