Sgt. Roger Gleason, Headquarters Battery 1968-70


Mr Cole,

Found this web-site yesterday for the 4th/517th, certainly brings back lots of memories....especially the photo's. I served in HQ Battery from 1968 to early 1970 and had forgotten the 517th was being "dismantled".

Thanks, for the work on the web-site and will share some photo's.........think I know which boxes they may be hiding.

I was drafted out of Iowa(Des Moines)with basic training in Ft. Bliss, Tx., assigned to the 4/517th in June '68? I believe. Is there a way to obtain other issues of the Duster.....probably all gone by now?

Roger Gleason
