To All Troopers of The 11th ACVVC

From Stephen Perry


I just wanted to let all of the Veterens know that you were not forgotten by the troopers who followed you in the 11th ACR. I will never forget the day in 1985 we were stripping our 113's to the metal to repaint them when some of us discovered patch marks in the walls. We asked our platoon Sergeant about it and he told us they were most likely patches from Vietnam where the 113's had taken hits. It was also very obvious to all troopers in my troop, E troop, 2/11th, that the to oak leaf clusters on our unit citation ribbons stood for our brothers who had fallen when they served before us.

God bless, Stephen Perry
