Was the 325th Airborne or Airmobile? I was right down the road at Camp LeJeune, India,3/6. We called ya,ll 82nd too!
Airborne Infantry Regiment. We used to do some stuff with the FORECON guys out of LeJeune and my father was at LeJeune for twenty years, so I spent a bit of time there. Never found any silver mines, though.

Do not let your excitement blind you... Swift could just as easily gone blind being exposed to the fumes of the smelting process. I personally think much of the lore of the legend was added as it was passed around by word of mouth. Green could be galena. Silver is regularly found in various amounts in lead deposits. Silver when exposed to oxygen over time will look black or tarnished. Green could also mean copper... best to do your research or you could mislead yourself. If you have found a/the compass rock a picture of it would be appreciated. One has already been found on Lower Devils Creek near Beattyville, KY in Lee County. That creek has recently become part of a 4WD recreation trail. You should be able to find a picture of it somewhere in the forums here on Tnet.
