Was too young to make a judgement call on COL Guest but do remember a few of the inspirational speeches he gave.

"The Russians are afraid of our Special Forces and will commit an entire divison to eliminating one A-Team."

The actor who played Rambo's former Commanding Officer in the movie reminded me of Guest.

Ah, "James Adiran Guest", known by afew brave souls as "Jimbo"... once. I worked for him twice and it was interesting both times. Shepherd I wasn't impressed with. Booth was a solid professional. He ended up with 1st I think. Forrest K was one tough SOB though.

I asked and Guest said "I won't have the colors of a defeated nation on my group flash". To Hell with history and tradition I guess. I kept mine sewn under the black one til I left.

I got to C/1/5 in Dec 88. I was told that 5th was put at FCKY by the Abn Mafia, meaning that the CG of 18th ABN Corps at Ft Bragg didn't want to lose a Group.

Since the 101st is also 18th ABN Corps, 5th was simply moving from one 18th ABN Corp post to another. That's how it was explained to me anyhow.

Could be. I was pushing for Huachuca when anyone asked. At least it fit the mission profile.

This is like one of those "Why did the chicken cross the road?" questions.

Q: Why was the 5th moved?
A: Because they could.

This was a great trip down memory lane. I was on 594 and attending O&I when the big move hit. Those of us in 3/5 became 1/3 and we were supposed to change flashes but few did while we were still in O&I. Once I got back and 594 had become 334 we did a little training and bala-bing bala-bang, off to Desert Storm we ran. There sure were a lotta surprised folks when we showed up there living in the parking garage while 5th hung out in the bat cave.

PS, anyone vouch for me being there? I was the Team Sgt on 334 in the Storm, but had spent the previous few years as the Eng or Asst Opns on 594 before the Bragg to Campbell move. I've been on this site now and again since 2007 and just noticed I'm listed as an asset...an ass maybe, but I was also an 18-series whody-who.
