Back than each unit has all the guard duty for a month. Fired dragon missiles at Graf. Was 11B than re-classed to 11D. Driver, loader, and Gunner of the M551 Sheridan. Worked in the gym as special duty for awhile. Loved the camaraderie hated the surprise "Alerts" at 3 am and roll outs. Lots of partying.
