The 4/12 Inf Web Beacon

One of the original aims of this site was to celebrate the fellows who served with 4/12 Infantry during our Baumholder days, and help each other get in touch. Veterans of the regiment from Viet Nam days are certainly welcome, but should be sure to visit the Redcatcher site, which is the best place for 12th Infantrymen of the 1960s to find their friends.

While this web beacon concept still works after a fashion, technology has moved on since I first posted back in 2005. I rarely update it now that it's been overtaken by other social media platforms such as Facebook and However, you can still enter your details (including a long-term email address) in the comments section below, or on any of the other posts here at the 4/12 Inf Web Beacon. That will allow search engines like Google to find you, and help you find other vets.

I'll keep all of these entries on the site so long as remains in operation, and will post the occasional item of interest like the dedication ceremony for the 12th Infantry Regiment monument at Fort Benning.

Meanwhile, if you're keen to see if I have details for anyone in particular, you can still contact me directly.

Naturally, I won't pass your details along to spammers or scammers.  And I'm not selling anything myself, either.

If you're still in touch with anyone from those days, I'd be grateful if you would forward them a link to this site, and raise a glass in honor of the times we had in Germany all those many years ago.


p.s. if you were also with 1/39 Inf (M), be sure to visit that web beacon as well.
