Get-together of Tankers from Co D, 33rd Tnk Bn

  A small "reunion" was hosted by Jimmy and Doris Wood the summer of 2000 at their home at Wellston, Ohio, for  former members of Co D, 33rd Tank Bn. All had been  tankers in the unit during the 1955 to '57 years.  They had trained together at Fort Knox in '55 and then sailed with the division to Germany in June '56 where they were stationed with CCB at Gelnhausen, Germany.
  According to Jimmy Wood, they all enjoyed this first-ever meeting. They looked at old photos and had each other much to tell. The highlight of the get-together was when Jimmy took the men out to a  chicken fight where all had a 'hell of a good time.'  At the same time Doris Wood took the ladies to the movies. 
  Plans are underway for another get-together sometime in 2001.  For more information contact Joseph Gomez by phone at 770-965-1285, or by e-mail at rgomez8260@aol.com
