    Look at Brian Engelhardts scrap book in the gallery. Notice that Tommie D. Colding and friends are chilling around this lake.

    I was so close to this beautiful place when took my family to Garmisch after my return from Iraq in '04'. If I'd know that the 761st had been in this area, I would have visisted so I could have walked on even more of the ground they had traversed.
