I'm sorry I can't help you, but perhaps you could help me. I'm looking for anyone who remembers Leland (Mort) Hollenbeck. He was at Fort Polk in November and probably December, 1970. Prior to that, he had Basic at Fort Knox, KY.

Many thanks for your kind help.

Sir,

I'm wondering if you remember Leland (Mort) Hollenbeck. He was at Fort Polk in late November and probably December, 1970. Prior to that, he had Basic at Fort Knox, KY.

Many thanks for your kind help.

I'm sorry, I can't ask him. He passed away 16 years ago. Thank you for your reply though.

My Drill Sergeant was a Hawaiian guy named AKAKA.
On his footlocker, he had painted a hand of cards:
Ace, King, Ace, King, Ace. Ha ha!

I was at Fort Polk for Basic in Oct - Dec 1970.
I was in B-2-2. Played Sax in the Band at the Talent contest at the end of basic. Have a picture of a band practice. Suprised everyone when I was given orders to Fort Monmoth for AIT in electronics. Everyone else was AIT at Fort Polk.

I was there from 6-4-70 to aug. and I can't believe no one has mentioned drill sgt pinckney or drill sgt Hiriams. Pinckney was the only man I have ever seen who could run 5 miles in 100 degree weather and never break a sweat. He was senior drill sgt. For B-4-2 never forget him.
