Re: Bosnian Armor...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Camp Demi was located near the town of Kladanj. The Camp is in a valley beside the 'ZOS' (Zone of Separation) in the South Eastern part of the MND-North sector.

This is Camp Demi antenna tower, when we arrived in March 99.

And my favourite foreign language phrase, "STOJ! Illi pucam!" (STOY!! Illi POOT-sam")

"Stop or I'll shoot!" in Bosnian. And this proves my 6-mos there weren't wasted.

This is a photo of me giving the Washington Redskin Cheerleaders my standard Welcome & Area Briefing.



As NCOIC of the TOC, I had to conduct several such VIP (USO) briefings.
I also briefed the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Several touring Music groups including Larry Gatlin, The Bellamy Brothers,....and Joan Jett.

I would selecte my junior personnel to give Military VIP's the standard AOR Briefing. This way my subordinates received COmmanders Coins, if they did a good briefing.

Its a terrible job,...but someone had to do it....
