My name is Phil Consalvo. I
was a T-5 and specialized in small arms in the 81 Easy Troop at Fulda
1946-47. My first sergeant was Demayo. I arrived in Le Harve,
France then traveled by railroad cars to the repo-depo in Kassel.
I was assigned to 203 AAA Automatic Weapons Battalions (SP).
Later the outfit was deactivated so I went to Wetzlar for Constabulary
Training. Upon completion I was assigned to E-Troop 81st
Constabulary Squadron. I went to Rasdorf to perform Russian
Border Patrol. I came back to Kaserne for one week, then transferred to
"C" Troop, and was sent to Schluchturn for more Russian Border
patrol. I was involved with many check points and checking DP
camps for contraband items.
I lived my adult life by the 81st Motto.
"THERE IS A WAY."
