PFC E3 James K. Ryan

Firing Section, Battery A, 1st Missile Battalion, 333rd Artillery

40th Artillery Group (Redstone)

Field Manuevers, West Germany, September 1960

We were in the field for most of September and early October. I shared the pup tent with SP4 Reed Moon.

Note the 30 calibre machine gun at my feet. Reed and I were the Firing Section's machine gun crew at the time.
