How many other Army types do we have here?
HemiByrd, I served with the 56th FA BDE Pershing) in Schwaebisch Gmuend, Germany back in 83-85. Switched to LANCE, and then MLRS when they phased out the LANCE missile system.
Since I've been here in Kuwait, I've come across three other Soldiers who were Pershing.
Appreciate your service and leading the way for us current Soldiers. I salute you.
