Chris' HHB, '67 -68 Album</H1></center> <hr color=red width=100%> Former Sgt. Chris Gaynor took a LOT of great pictures during his tour, Which like many of us, started with a boat ride. <hr color=red width=100%> <center><h3>These pictures are copyrighted Christopher B. Gaynor, 2009</center> You may feel free to download them for PERSONAL, non-commercial use only.</h3> <hr color=red width=100%> A ride with the 9th Inf. Div as a 1/84th FA troop. In may, he transferred over to 2/77 as part of the USARV's Foreign Exchange Student program to integrate seasoned troops with "Cherries" so there would be NO 100% Green units. The 1/84th was an interesting unit. It had for one thing, an old - style 155mm towed howitzer in at least one of his batteries. For some reason, like many units in the 4th Division - Their first In country duty was at and out of "Bearcat." <br> Most of this first page will show some of his experiences with the boat, Okinawa stop over and Bearcat stuff. But they are still memories for some of you, too, sort of. <br> Brothers, this one is a BIG one! I think at last count, there were something approaching 400 pics in it. So - It will be an ongoing process for a while, with some of them added at a time, because I have other projects I'm working on also. Including 180+ pics donated by former B Battery "Boat Trooper" Ken Klauser. So - check back in once in a while, and see what's New. <hr color=red width=100%> Also, MANY of these troopers, we do NOT REMEMBER their names, and we would appreciate it if YOU ARE ONE OF THEM, or KNOW/RECOGNIZE any of them, you would contact me by E-mail. Our goal of course for ALL these pictures on ALL OF THESE ALBUMS - is to eventually have ALL our BROTHERS IN ARMS identified, which of course makes the history more complete, and thus, more dynamic for us all! So, please do your best not to just CRUISE OR SKIM - PARTICULARLY if you were in HHB,FROM 1967 - 1968. <hr color=red width=1oo%> And of course, a Very Grateful THANK YOU to brother Christopher Gaynor for these mostly great shots. Some are gooder than others, but with a lot going on, and not great lighting circumstances sometimes, He did a FANTASTIC job all things considered. <hr color=red width=100%> <b>As a Special note - Sgt. Chris wants to give a VERY SPECIAL Thanks to Eagle Scout Tanner Means of Vashon, WA. For putting these shots on disc for him AND making him a great slide show complete with 60's music! SO, From Sgt. Chris, Sgt. Mikie, and on behalf of ALL the 2/77FA Troops - THANKS for preserving a valuable part of our History for him and us! The same goes for Chris' Assistant, Nathan, who helped him learn to increase the quality of the shots by teaching him some of his graphic arts tricks! Thanks to both! <hr color=red width=100%> <H3><CENTER>|<a href="ftlewisalbum.html">Ft.
