OK............time to put on the THINKING CAPS again.


Who of you remember (1973 - 1974) Major Mattie Parker?


Was wondering about her after trying to place faces with names.


She worked at the Stanggass and lived in a small apartment behind the MP Station in the SUPPACT BOQ's.

That's Mattie V. Parker, and she got promoted to LTC in the summer of '73. I was her direct report until she got promoted by Col Meyers. (Then, I reported to a new Major, Major Harrell.) I've totally lost touch with her. Have you had any contact? LARRY

In Sept of 1072, Major Burke Harrell was my Battalion Commander in Frankfurt, while I was at S-2, at the FARPAC in Hoerst -- CPT Thompson was my Company Commander. When I was appointed to the patrol I had one responsiblilty and that was to report to Harrell.

Apparently Thompson and Lt Allbright went to West Point (USMA) together back then... and  while I was TDY in Berchtesgaden 72-74... I was suppose to keep Harrell abreast of all the stuff happening at AFRC. (Hell they even offered me a bonus to stay in the military and join him in Garmisch as his NCOIC back then...I didn't --and considering where I am now I should've stayed in.

I don't suppose you might know what and where he (Burke Harrell) went after Garmisch. I know Harrell  made LTC., and Thompson was rifted....I understand Thompson is somewhere in the mid-west?? But I would be really happy to drop him a line.

Yes, I remember Mattie parker well.

Sorry for the late reply. I just found the AFRC web site. I was a ski instructor, Hausberg manager and golf course manager at AFRC Garmisch between 72-78. I also reported to Mattie Parker until she moved to B' Garden.
I married an AFRC Ski Instructor, Laurie Nevin.

I met Matti for Dinner at Ft. Sheridan, IL. North of Chicago (Great Lakes Naval Station) after she left AFRC.
I lost touch with her but had contact with Burke Harrell in Park City UT and skied with him there.

I posted a picture yesterday of Mattie Parker, Burke and me taken at a Ski Instructors party circa '73
