I was with A Company 1/70th Armor 4th Division 8th Infantry from 83 to 84.
I understand you're converting to an armor unit and are having a celebration in June. I would enjoy attending the celebration even though I was never in the unit you're being redesignated to. From a retired tanker in 1/67 Ar, 2/67 Ar, 2/81 Ar, 3/12 Cav, and 3rd Cav to the incoming ranks of Armo, welcome to the best.
I was in Delta, 3/41 Inf during Operation Desert Storm
Looking for Sgt Irvine who was with me in Desert Storm. Anyone?
My first assignment was the 41st regiment in 1980 at Fort hood Texas with 1st Battalion 41st infantry Battalion and now my son Casey's first assignment is with the Straight and Stalwart at Fort Bliss, 3rd Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment. God bless all of you.
