Name: Carl W Moreland
EmailAddress: cmoreland@neo.rr.com
Remarks: I had the distinct pleasure of serving with the 3d Bn (Herc) 59th Artillery, Milwaukee Air Defense from 1966 - 1968. I had just returned from Italy, 5th Bn, 30th Arty (Sergeant). Due to a thing called Vietnam, the Bn was was short of Commissioned Office so I was assigned as the Bn S4. As a Quartermaster WO, I have served with all the Combat Arms types but I never served with a more dedicated group of soldiers than those in Air Defense Artillery. Not to make light of it, but with truly "24 hour status", I thought "Hardship Tours" were only in places like Korea. Thanks for having being part of the Air Defense Artillery Family. . Carl W. Moreland CW4, U.S. Army (Ret)

Name: James B. Nimon II
EmailAddress: BlazingSkies@aol.com
Remarks: As I understand it, I was the last class leader of the the last 24 u course at Ft. Bliss Tx. I graduated in late April 1986, and was assigned to C Tm 51st USAAD,5th USAAG in Edewecht ,Germany. The Headquarters was in Adelheide/Delmenhorst. 5th USAAG was out of Buren. As that site was closed, I was assigned to A Tm 43rd USAAD in Thum, Germany. The Headquarters was under Belgian support in Duren, Germany. That site was closed in Aug of 1988 as was Buren. I returned to Ft Bliss and without an mos as it was deleted, I reclassed into the Army Band field. Presently, I am stationed with the 98th Army Band at Ft rucker, Alabama. It has been 12 years since I was ADA and I still miss it. The best years of my Army career was spent serving as a 24U with the Nike Hercules system. Thanks for the great page. I hope to someday find and recapture my past once again.
