Update Photos Taken at Fort Eustis, VA
Although Tom and I never knew each other back then, and we were in the same unit, thanks to this website we were able to get together and meet in VA for the first time. Below are a few photos of us at the U.S. Army
Transportation Museum at Fort Eustis, VA on May 8, 2002. We had a great couple of days together going over old times and sightseeing in the area.
