      Where's 29th FA in this story?  29th FA was DS for 3/8 CAV in the actual battle plan.  Those were the guns that were no where to be found in Reforger 85, when I had call on a stateside GS BN for help.

        Oh, I was just telling about Reforger 85. In Reforger we play with our real life units, as if we were going to a real war. So 3/8 CAV had guns from the 29th FA

          Oh, I was just telling about Reforger 85. In Reforger we play with our real life units, as if we were going to a real war. So 3/8 CAV had guns from the 29th FA supporting us.  During some part of the exercise, 29th FA got left behind and couldn't support us. I was on the radio calling everyone. Finally some GS BN answered and said....''Send your missions to me.''

            The 3-16th FA (8 inch howitzers) was taken out of action in 1987. I was in
            "A" Btry of the 4 / 29th
            FA and we picked up a few soldiers from the disbanded 3/16th FA (they were
            not happy to enter a 155 MM unit (SP). The 4 / 29th used to be the 1 / 2 FA
            in an earlier re-organization. I was there from 1985 - 1988 in Baumholder.
