2018_Reunion_Grp.JPG1/19th FA honors the 2/9th FA84 viewsThe 1/19th FA, Jerry Orr's old unit, commemorated our 2018 visit with a group photo. The highlights of sharing our reunion time with the 1/19th FA included meeting the trainees at the Dining Facilities, observing their marksmanship training skills at the firing range, attending a graduation, and...most of all...serving as a Group Panel to permit a new class of Trainees to ask any questions they wanted from a group experienced combat veterans. The Battalion Commander made all of us "honorary members" of the 1/19th and we are welcome to return at any time.
