Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Captain John Passet now Major Passet. If you have not noticed John and I went through the Academy together. John was also the best man at my wedding and is close to making LTC and retirement with twenty plus years of service.

Best Moment
Returning to Btry A 1-121 FA as the Commander and some of the old guys are still there from when I was a Corporal. I had two gentlemen retire from the Guard that year and they said that they stayed in only because it was rumored that I was going to be the Commander and wanted to retire after I took Command because they thought so highly of me.


Chain of Command
LTC Edward C. Schrader Bn Commander (95/98).
Col Harold J. Nevin Jr. Bde Commander (95/96).
Col Ronald A. Luebke Bde Commander (97/98).
MAJ Jeffery J. Clark Bn S3(97/98).
MAJ Timothy R. Schulgen Bn S3 (99/2000).
LTC Steven A, Beyer Bn Commander (99/2000 Marine Veteran).
COL James A. Schiller Bde Commander (99/2000)

Other Memories
