    Yeah Larry I think we’ll get some to go, but Fort Lewis is a ways away, Man—That’d be trip wouldn’t it?

  • Ok 523 was just another unit of mine 512 69/70 nobody remembers me there as convoy officer. Hope you find someone here who remembers me.

    Pete,we may not have served with you in 68/69. I bet a lot of us passed and waved at you on hwy 19, while you was doing your duty as Convoy Officer. I was in the 359th TC 68/69. Ran up and down Hwy 19 all the time. Even stayed overnight at Camp Addison a few times.

    We need guntruck all around the US. The US Border Patrol are so corrupt they can’t handle it.

    Hello! I want to confirm that 523 is standing up and activating at joint base Lewis McCord. I am the acting executive officer there and would love to know some of y’all’s mottos or company mascot if you had one. Myself, the commander and the 1sg are the only people actually in the company right now and are trying to come up with call signs and whatnot as we build up the company…any thoughts? You can reach me at my email with any additional info requests, we would love to have you guys at the activation ceremony which is slated for October! Thanks again…

    Motto
    “Nothing Happens Till Something Moves”

  • dealr06 dealr06

    Hey gang,

    Was there a specific motto for 523? The basic transpo one isn’t going to work. Also call signs? Did you have any for the Commander/1SG…or was it just truck names and nick names for each person. We are starting to get Soldiers soon and want to incorporate a Bad A$$ motto and mascot(call sign) for the company as we receive and in brief. I had previous ones as: Hammer 5, Wolfpack5, and Alpha 6 (for the wolfpack)…we already have other companies that are- Head Hunters, Pioneers, Knights, Wolfpack, Spartans, Bulldog…any ideas are welcome! Thanks again.

    Budman said in 1969 convoy commander was Frisco 1 and last guntruck was Frisco 1 alpha.
