The King moves slowly one space at a time, and needs the Queen for protection, as the Queen is the most mobile.

11H here. We just kept the tanks from running over the little crunchy things called 11B's. Just kidding of course. I wasn't an 11B, but I did my time on the ground, mechanized and airborne.

I was with:

A-6-1 Infantry Basic Sand Hilton, Ft. Benning(October 85-January 86)

Airborne School(February 86)

1/7th Infantry 3rd Infantry Division Mechanized Aschaffenburg, West Germany (February 86-January 88)

2/505th PIR 82nd Airborne Division Ft.Bragg, NC (February 88-February 92)

While I was with the 82nd, I attended and graduated Ranger School, PLDC, and BNCOC.

Deployments include the Sinai Peninsula for MFO peacekeeping duties followed by Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

Anything else, just ask.

Howdy Ranger HT, I recognize you from AR.com. There is one flaw with that theory. At the end of the day you can take the soldier out of the Airborne, but you can't take the Airborne out of the soldier. ;)

Hey, TOG23, is it true that everyone in the regiment wears annodized medals, now? No more shinning brass? If so, that sucks. I still have my smooth eagle blouse and overcoat buttons, flat cockades, and frames. No friggin rouge wheel bull****, either, straight brasso, blue magic and towel time!
My original issued jump wings, AASLT wings and EIB are all towel time and wrapped up in that old towel, too.

TOG23
12-27-2006, 16:55
Yep annodized medals little easier for sure but if you loose it you pay unless you can sweet talk the supply. My PH is like 85 Dollars for just the medal. Pres. Ford this weekend:upeyes:

rifle-cop624
12-27-2006, 17:15
Yeah. Stand-by for the stand-by on the state funeral for that one. I'm sure that the weather will wind up absolutely abysmal on the day you guys do the Pres. Ford funeral. It's just par for the course being an Old Guard trooper.
Dude, if there is any way I could get a regimental sweatshirt (name a price), size 2XL, I'd appreciate it. I actually wore hole in my old one issued to me in 91.

I knew it was one of youse! We (3-1-5 MiTT) were there Sep '05 - Jan '06. Furthest north we got was Speicher. Constantly heard of "going's on" up where you guys were though.

Rakkasan
01-26-2007, 23:37
Jeff, Brassfield-Mora was outside Samarra right? If so, yes 3-187 was there for a bit. We went to Speicher a handfull of times on patrols and such, that place was just too comfortable for me. I liked Summerall for the fact that it was only our battalion there, we didn't have the pressure from the "higher ups" like a larger base would have. The only down side was the almost nightly mortar/rocket attacks and the IED/RPG ambushes in Bayji and HWY 1. That place was no joke. It sure gives you a whole new perspective on life when you are done.

I liked Summerall for the fact that it was only our battalion there, we didn't have the pressure from the "higher ups" like a larger base would have. The only down side was the almost nightly mortar/rocket attacks and the IED/RPG ambushes in Bayji and HWY 1. That place was no joke. It sure gives you a whole new perspective on life when you are done.
Yep, just NW on the bypass. Our IA bn(-) stayed at FOB 7 a little more NW from BM at the old reservoir. Two companies were at FOB Omaha. We'd travel to Remagen, Danger, Dagger, Anaconda, and Speicher when needed. Tampa was a ... well you know! We enjoyed our independence as MiTTs.

My question for you modern day Warriors is this... how is the Artillery fire mission handled now? Is it adjusted by a man on the ground, as in my day? :fred:
Is that man Artillery or Infantry MOS? Or is the whole thing done with computerized voodoo robot laser mind control implants with one of those visor thingys? :animlol:
Just wondering how the job has changed.
And thanks for your service.

I spent 2 years at Fort Benning(working at IOBC), so I got a good chance to check it out. I was "lucky" enough to do my Infantry Basic Training back before they were doing it at Benning.
Good old Fort Polk. :fred: Yep, those were the days. Back then us 11C's even had our own forward observers in our mortar platoons, and it wasn't a separate MOS until they yanked the job right out from under me.:soap: Then I stayed around until they yanked the whole weapon system(4.2" mortar) right out from under me too.
I guess it's good I got out about then, anyway. I would have started feeling kind of old and obsolete then, too. They used the FourDeuce mortar from WWI to Desert Storm, but phased it out around 1992.:wavey:

Unless I am mistaken, I saw fourdice? mounted in the back of 113's while I was at Ft Hood from 94 to 97. Was never told it was anything else so I could be wrong.

I got out in 1992, and heard that they got rid of it around then. They may have held on to some for a while longer. You know how long it takes the Army to get anything done.;)
The funny thing about that was they were telling us they were going to put the new 120mm mortar in the back of the same carriers, but the new tubes were even bigger than the old ones, and the old ones barely fit in the tracks. If they put the 120's in there they wouldn't be able to shut the hatches. :animlol:

Hoss1-27

it may have been 120's. I never seen them set up or anything just saw mortors in the back while walking past. Just assumed the were the fourduece.

I just found this book in a bookstore and it looks like a very good book. It was written by a guy who went ashore on D-Day, then went on through to the end of the war in Europe. He was a Lieutenant in the Infantry, a mortar platoon leader. He graduated from the Citadel about a year and a half after Pearl Harbor was attacked, then went to Fort Benning to OCS. The book is titled You Can't Get Much Closer Than This, and it was written by A.Z. Adkins, Jr. and Andres Z. Adkins, III. The father was the WWII veteran who went ashore in Normandy on D-Day. He chose the title of the book to describe the way he felt about being in the Infantry.:thumbsup:

One correction: He didn't go ashore on D-Day. He went ashore a bit later, but he did manage to survive through the end of the war in Europe, one of only a couple of men in his unit that managed to do that.:patriot:
