you built it-I helped tear it down in 1972. Maybe the worst was burning all the maps in the depot.

Then you were my CO. I came to the 66th in Oct 71 and stayed till the end-Mar 72. One of our officers Lt Kevin Gartlin was to become My Co at the 524th TOPO at Ft Hood.

I knew a SSG Newman (we knew him as newby one stroke, long story) in the 66th as well as CWO Johnson. Wold like to campare nanes and places. TOPO was small field and most everbody knew everybody else at least in their speciality. I have photos of Tompkins, Ft Hood and the 66th if anyone wants.

Topic: 524th Engineer Co 1975-1978

I was with the 524th Engineer Company (Topo) serving as a 82D from 1975 through 1978. The survey methods that I learned at Ft. Belvoir and then got to practice on TDY missions really set me up for a lifetime career. It's a shame that I lost track of the folks that I served with.

Topic: 524 Eng (TOPO) 1979

Hello to All,
I served in the 524 Eng (TOPO) as a 81C in 1979. I remember the motorpool was across the street from the Stockade. I remember CPT Sharon and 1SGT Joseph. I never got to deploy when I served but have more than made up for it as I have been deployed as a DoD Contractor Iraq and Afghanistan for over three years.
