Hi. I had a tour with the 59th Ord Bde 1977-1980. I was first at the 5th US Artillery Group in Bueren when the Pershing det in Geilenkirchen was in it. The 5th USAAG reorganized as the parent command for all Nike-Hercules dets, so as an FA officer I moved to the liaison office at CENTAG. I participated in Tac-Evals for both the 74th and 85th.
My last tour - 83-86 - I started out at EUCOM HQ and transfered to the 59th HQ in Pirmasens. I was the plans officer, but owing to my P1a background continued to evaluate the two GAF winfgs and their dets during Tac-Evals and GAFTAC alert site "visits."
Leon, I received a pm from an arty officer (ret.) that I never answered. I was thinking about it today and decided to see if it was you. Did you serve in the 74th USFAAD in Germany?
