Post by Punyrgr79 »

I was team leader 73 in the first LRSD unit at Ft. Ord, Ca. We were attached to 2/10 cav which later was re-designated 2/9 cav if my memory serves me well. I served with a SGT Ganz, Mcdonald and our 1SG was Beltran. Does that ring a bell for anyone here? Let me know. Thanks and take care.

In 1987/90 I was in the first LRSD at Ft. Stewart and the name Beltran sounds familiar but I'm not sure. Maybe our paths crossed somwhere else.

I began Basic the middle of December 68 and completed AIT in late March or early April 69. Then off to Ft. Benning.

Beautiful area! I have been back there to visit twice in the years since.

Daniel--what's your last name? I was there in the very beginning of the LRSD. I think I was the 6th soldier in the unit, although at that time I couldn't find my ass with both hands and a flashlight. There were a lot of good, knowledgeable soldiers there in the beginning. I couldn't have asked for a better start. Pretty sure I was the only non-11B on one of the teams. Damn I miss jumping out of planes....
