    A few weeks ago, I had the wonderful good fortune to link up with LTC Gabriels (The Bn CDR throughout the units existence) Grandson also named James Gabriel, and also a Colonel in the military (USAF). He has been extremely helpful with furthering the research of the battalion and provided me with an amazing 100+ page manuscript written by Bert Ballengee (a member of HQ Btry FDC) that i did not know existed. The manuscript, written in 1993, is an awesome first person account of Bert's experiences with the unit before, during and after the war.

    I was able to provide a few tidbits of information about the unit to him in exchange.

    Thanks Jim for communicating with me and sharing. Much appreciated.
