I’m curious to know if know if Fire Direction Control on the 175 Guns used FADAC or was it done manually. I know FADAC was not available for the 155 Guns because they were never converted to the metric system but I’m sure the Army was using FADAC with the 175 Guns in Vietnam. Did the USMC use FADAC with them as well?
I was able to locate the Command Chronologies for 1st Guns for Mar69 to Dec69 in the National Archives and have ordered copies. This should allow me to “flesh out” the Battery History entries for that period. I’m still looking for the records from Jan70 to Oct70.
Do you know of anyone who served with 1st Guns in Vietnam (155mm or 175mm Guns)? Please reply if you do.
We’re thinking very seriously about holding a 1st Guns reunion on the East Coast late next winter or early next spring and would like to hear from anyone that served with the Guns in Nam or knows of anyone that may be interested in attending a 1st Guns reunion. Please reply if you are interested.
Did you serve with 1st 175mm Guns in Vietnam? If so, we’d like to hear from you.
