My name is John Pace, I was in B-Btry the whole time I was there. Got there in June 79 and left in Sept 82. Yeah those were some good times although I remember not always thinking so then lol. I had several 1SG's, 1SG Noland, Dewald, King, Valentine and a couple more of which I cannot remember their names at the moment. We had Captain Hughes and Captain Holland as BC's most of the time I was there, maybe one more.

Yeah, I remember LTC Van Horn, CSM Hewitt and all those Battalion runs. Remember we had to cut the fatigue pants off and make shorts out of them :). I remember the jeep incident lol and would probably remember you if I saw you but not by name. I stayed on in and retired as a SFC but of all my assignments I remember that one the most and enjoyed the times there.

I remember Marg Kershner, one of the best looking females there and the good ole Rose lol. Send me Col Van Horns email address if you would, you can email me

Good to hear from a fellow "Nukem till they Glow" Lancer.
