Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Roberto Moran (PFC) Jeff Wright (SPC)

The road trips while off duty!! Also, getting promoted from Private to PV2 to Private First Class to Specialist. Had much fun in this unit and had great leadership from old school NCOs from the Vietnam era through the Gulf War era.


Worst Moment
Task Force XXI (advanced warfighting expiriments) in a non-deployable Division.

Chain of Command
