I wanted to say a specific hello to all of the 3rd group guys.
I was a Bravo in 1/3 from 97-01. I am now living in southern California working with an armored vehicle company. I look forward to communicating with you guys and wish you all well

I hope you guys allow an old guy in here. I was a SP4 Medic 911.73 (later 91B4S now 18D) and was there when A/3rd SFG started 1 March 1964 in the old RTC area at Bragg. E/7th SFG became A/3rd SFG. Here is the old flash. See Ya.

ODA 574 A/3/5th SFG one day and the change of the flash I was ODA 314 A/1/3 SFG. Could not keep everyone from bashing that Flash. Welcome and 3 SFG has come back Strong in SF Form. No one is ashamed to be there and the group has done us proud. Welcome to QP...

I was on A/3/5 before it turned into 1/3d. I left while our company was out a Mott Lake doing the SOT stuff. I went to SWC from 87-91 then back to B/2/3. Alot of people made fun of 3d, but it turned out to be a great unit. After the "dark days" Deploying with more chow than team equip and losing your sep rats and living in national guard armories! But oh what fun we had. I really felt bad for the 3/3 guys, I think they did more JRTC rotations than any other army unit in history!

They sure did.... I think B/2/3 actually lucked out getting the JTF-6 rotations. Good training and some fun...:D

Snaquebite,

Don't sweat the 3/3 JRTC deal...3/3 ended up leading the way for 3d Gp being the first 3d Gp Bn into both Afghanistan and Iraq. There were a lot of unhappy campers back then in the other battalions, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Those were rough days in 3/3! You could write a book just about the hard times 3/3 went through coming on line under "Diane" as DCO and Bn CDR. Times were hard for us all, but 3/3 had it so much worse than the rest of us! We used to feel sorry for 3/3 when I was in 2/3! The Rwanda stop-n-go fiasco, the bus rides to JRTC, ACRI... You guys got hosed a lot and I wasn't even in 3/3 back then so I know there are a bunch I never heard about! :(

I was JR 18C on one of the 2/3 teams that went to PR with your company prior to the Haitian Vacation...fun times were had by all! I don't remember your CO's name now...he was an "odd" cat. I bumped into him in Panama a few years later and he was a LTC (!?). Crazy times.

I also had the misfortune of being stuck in Cap Haitien with CARICOM #1 for the last few months of Haiti round 1, OPCON to "Diane." That was pure hell as I recall. Quite a few stories to share about that too... Insanity.

After my SWC tour I ended up in 3/3 (2002-2005) and it was great. Wartime 3/3 has an entirely different face than the old peacetime 3/3 had, let me tell you. Wouldn't have wanted to be deployed under any other guidon than 3/3.

Good to see you on here SGM.

rltipton, Yep it was "interesting" to say the least. Lost seperate rats, cuts in funds that were not Army money because Diane was trying to look good. Computors that didn't make it to Africa, Story in The Resistor (that about did us in). But after all that some great guys...a bunch are now officers, a couple of SGM's and several Warrents.....Very talented guys, they learned some leadership lessons on how not to do it and hopefully are better leaders for it.

PS: eventually the commander made Colonel....

A former 1st grouper, I'm relatively new to 3rd GRP. Got here in 09, have had a great run and plan to stick around as long as I can be useful.

Edit: PMs sent to Team Sergeant but not showing up in my PM outbox. I'll email, text, call, or send runner if not received.

Hey all, just found this intro thread. I spent a little bit of time at 2/3, but was a big trouble maker.

I was on ODA 3211 (341), Bn Med and ODB 3230 (360) from '07 to '10.

Zambia - your first post belongs in the main intro thread. Not here.

Do a PLF into it and get squared away. And do something with your profile.

I was an 18D in 1st battalion from 2007 to 2010. I don't talk with anyone from the regiment much anymore, but there are a couple guys I'm hoping to look up.
