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.

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 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.
