Ok, here is something to take everyone back a few years. Who can remember what a Frag Rep was?

As I remember , a frag-rep was a spot report used only on the border to indicate a crossing of platoon size or less. A "creek-ball" was platoon size or larger.

Just a way of categorizing the severity of an incident so that Regiment would know how to react.

Fragmention Report- Border activity? It was a long time ago!

Any occurrence , on or near the border, the consequences of which could logically be expected to lead to damage to or destruction of US or allied property or injury or death to US or allied personnel. I think...

fragrep:any occurance on or near the border that could indicate an imminent attack or provoke an armed clash between us/ allied and warsaw pact forces or provide the basis for a diplomatic protest by either side. fragrep larembell: Warsaw pact forces in greater than platoon strength violate the international border. Handicap black: operational test message simulating enemy contact testing the individual soldiers ability to send a message from lower to higher headquarters.

Frag Rep Laurum Bell, hmmm if memory serves, It was esentialy a Frag rep in greater than Platoon strength that could indicate an iminent Attack. A better better memory can fill in the blanks.

Jay, I do recall getting busted and pulling Latrine duty several times lol. The Greatest thing about B-troop though was as long as you were squared away and knew your job the punishment was tempered accordingling. At least I can say that while Capt Ryan was our fearless leader. We had our share of weak leaders but at no time in my military career can I recall a better collection of Officers, NCO's and Enlisted in one location at one time.
