An Indiana Brother over here too? 1-152 CAV (RSTA)

Yeah, Sand Hill sucked when I went in 89. Infantry OSUT I was B 1/50 too.

Lot of time at Benning. Infantry School, Airborne, Long Range Surveilance Leaders Course. Air Assault at Camp Gruber, OK.
Reclassed as a 19D in 2007 at Ft Knox.

We're in the desert for the rest of the year. I was a Recruiter for years and am over here with 29 troops I enlisted and not one of them has tried to shoot me yet. LOL!!

Well since you are talking about "old guys", Basic E-2-1 and Infantry AIT (can't remember company etc) at Ft Jackson 1964, then a little time at Bragg and Gordon. But looking at some of the dates listed, I'm just a kid.
