Thank you Doc and Mouche.
Thank you to all that have served and continue to serve.

Thank you to all who served to keep us free.
My dad, WW2 First Cav in Pacific.

My wife’s paternal grandfather, Connecticut National Guard, served in France WW1

Germany, Circa 1972, in the middle..
Great picture! I never could figure out why we wore our shirts untucked in Germany. I did like our starched fatigues and spit polished Corcorans better than the later BDU’s.
I can remember my first day arriving at Rhein-Main airport, wondering why all these troops were wearing their uniforms incorrectly.
Thanks vets for your sacrifices. To the lost

I thank you all!
One more family veteran picture. My dad’s oldest brother. WW2 Navy Seabee in the Pacific.
He also used the GI Bill, unlike my dad he remained a civilian and became an office manager.
I was there 1975-77. When under arms (I was an MP) or in the Winter, shirts were always tucked-in. In the Summer when shirt sleeves were rolled-up, the shirt tails were out, except then under arms (which for me was everyday).
This is a special Veterans' Day, as it is also the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.
My paternal grandfather was a medic w/ the 3rd ID and was captured and held as a POW until Jan 1919.
My paternal great-uncle was KIA 7-days before the end of the war, and was awarded the DSC posthumously. My local American Legion Post is named after him. I found both their service records in the WW1 Museum in Kansas City.
I was there as an MP as well, ‘73-‘76 in Mannheim. I am pretty sure we never tucked in our fatigue shirts whether our sleeves were rolled up or down.
Were you a division MP? (Attached to 8th Infantry Div or similar). They were the only MPs that I remember always wearing fatigues on MP duty. Except for Reforger or Brigade 75 we always wore Khakis or Class A’s on road duty.
I was a SGT/E5 in Co A, 95th MP Bn, 15th MP Bde first at Sullivan Barracks then at Taylor Barracks, Mannheim Kafertal, all closed down now.
As for shirts untucked in winter, it is possible that I don’t remember correctly. It has been a few years ago.
Negative. I was w/ a garrison unit in Frankfurt: A/709th MP Bn., V Corps. Our barracks were first at Gutleut Kaserne (yes, THAT Gutleut), then Gibbs.
We wore Class-As w/ badge on 1st and 2nd shift; fatigues and helmet liners w/ brassards on 3rd shift.
