Mark, I know he is in the 1st Inf at ft. Riley but when he goes to Ft. Lewis is he going into the 7th Infantry?  I did time in that unit also when it was in Korea 68-69 got my agent orange there.

Haven't heard that from him. But it does make sense due to the fact that the word is his unit is being disbanded. Will have to ask him.

Edit:
Got answers faster than expected. At this point, son will still be 1st Infantry upon arrival at Ft. Lewis. After reporting in, no clue.

One thing we always like when traveling are the great people we have met in CG's we stayed...many were ex-military.

Most servicemen and women serve willingly. They would do the job regardless, but having the America people support and thank them is priceless.  For all of you who do, Thank You.

I received a letter this morning from one Myron B Roker, a 91 year old living in Glenwood, IA.  I came into contact with him thru Jim Dick, its a long story!  In his letter, Mr Roker talked about the 15 days he spent bivouacked just south of the port of Cherbourg in 1944 (I live half an hour from there), and how he will never forget the ride in the 40 x 8 box car to Nancy in France where he spent 204 days in Combat 144 without a break (which at that time was the longest any outfit had been in continuous action).  He wrote about receiving a German souvenir, a bullet in his right leg, and how he didn't have to be evacuated but instead was awarded the Purple Heart!  He was wounded a second time, shrapnel in his right shoulder.  He jokingly mentioned the only action he sees these days is mowing the lawn, which he was going to do the next morning.

Long live people like Myron.

Ok 1 more who just found this thread:  USN Radioman 2nd Class, '66 - '71, USS Shangri La (2 full and a partial Med Cruise), AWFR (Atlantic Fleet Weapons Range) PR, NavComSta Ft. Allen, PR. Thank you to all vets, and especially to those who saw action other than sitting on their backsides safe like me. My most dangerous mission was navigating back to Fleet Landing while wasted before a Cinderella Liberty violation put me in the brig.

You Marines, Army, Seals, PJ's, Pilots, and other groups who "get the job done regardless of the risk" are my heroes. And second to none are the spouses that hold down the fort, raise the kids and feed the dog. Thank you for your sacrifice.  And lastly, thanks to the US Navy for making something out of a 'rebel without a clue' when I went joined to avoid the draft.  The great life in high tech I've enjoyed is all due to you and your training.

Another US Army Veteran here.  Combat Engineer 6 years, 11 months, and 29 days (but whose counting?)  Then to college on the GI Bill, then to the Police Academy. Retired after 27 years on the job.  Now I fish.... not just once in awhile, but a lot.  Love Retirement!!

As for me, DOD Civ, sometimes in a uniform, standing watch going on 38 years. Will probably punch in a year or two.

A7 - Cool jet!  I fondly remember a day I was standing near the flight line in Subic (85') was there on Westpac off the Tarawa, Daluth, Tuscaloosa (time on all) while in the Corps.  Watched a jock taxi'ing with canopy up, arm hanging out wheeling into position.  Thanks for your service friend!

We were shipmates!  I made the '73-'74 cruise as an AQ1 and again in '75 as AQC.  Remember the forward hangar bay door getting knocked in and killing a CPO on our return trip in '74?  Lot's of green water over the deck on that one.
