Our Story: Delta Company 6th/6th Infantry, 1st Armored Division

I am looking for members of Delta company, 6th/6th Infantry of the 1st Armored Division and deployed to Operation Desert Storm in 1990-1991.

Dco, 6th/6th Infantry, 1st AD
My name is PFC Scott Lee, I was the driver for Sergeant Dan Tickle and our gunner was Sergeant Otis Banks. If you were a member of Delta Company 6th battalion, 6th Infantry of the 1st Armored Division and deployed to The First Gulf War I would like to get in contact with you.

I am setting up an oral history project to tell our story. We played a pivotal part in the largest tank battle in the history of war and I'd like to share our story.

Please leave a message in the comment section or contact me directly by email at rmngen@gmail.com.

I still have my Greengoose card. I carved my name in the concrete of my NBC room. I've returned to Bamberg a few times... carved my name on the back of a beam in the bathroom of the penthouse suite of the Bamberger hotel. names... Bruce Wall, Ethan smith, Norfleet, sgt Ski, traxler, 1sg cruz, Lt steve, Lt quinn, tarchek, lt brian summers, pvt weller, ssg aquino, ssg crouch, spc pugh, sgt Williams, cpl Williams, sgt haddocks, Tuggle, Sgt todd gray, cpl todd hanses, spc Metcalf, sgt McClelland, sgt golden, cpt james stevens... so many more. I had the last M113 D65... trying to keep up with the Bradleys was almost impossible and dangerous. "Dragon65... dragon65... dragon6...………... dragon65 dragon65 this is 6! Where the f___ are you?" tim@schartner.com
