thanks, Dave. Must be someone else. I was in Junior Hi in 1961.

Yes James. It was taken between 1959-61 at Vilseck/Graf.

Dave, the buck Sgt. on the left looks familiar, but the white name tag throws me off. In the Fall of 1967 , when I entered BCT, name tags were "subdued" . Do you know what year this was taken??

The handsome little devil on the right is our own Wayne Dixon. Anybody know the other guy. No prize for the answer, just a lot of gratitude.

Thanks again Frank. I was thinking maybe they threw in another "I" for Instruction. Mechanized Infantry Squad Proficiency Instruction Course, or something like that. Your explanation sounds better. At any rate, these will be going to our museum.

Dave, perhaps the misspelling by the embroiderer? These were locally made patches and didn't always coem out the way they should have (see commentary about the lightweight, original shoulder patches.) Perhaps since it was pronounced MISPIC that was they way it got spelled - but the Q course title was as I suggested.

James,
You should find all the info here:

DESERT STORM
Comment by Dave Gettman on December 10, 2009 at 11:34am
Thanks Frank, but what is the second "I" for? It is MISPIC not MISPC.
Comment by James F. Burgos on December 10, 2009 at 9:56am
I need some help here. In Operation Desert Storm our Regiment was involved in the Battle of Medina Ridge, where an entire Republican Guard Tank Unit was wiped out by our tanks. Does anyone know which Squadron or Troops took part in the battle? Those boys did well, well indeed.
