His comment:

"I was stationed at Monteith between 1966 and 1967 in the 2nd battalion 14th artillery Head Quarters, Head quarters Battery. Attached are pictures taken at Monteith Barracks. I don't find any mention of the 14th Artillery. Also the 37th Armor and 57th Missile Battalion was there. Do you know what could have happened to these units?"
