This may be a late post, but come on guy's they are grid coordinates and you can order the maps through a map supplier on the internet. I still have about 3 maps. One was for my little piece of Obj. Cobra

I don't know the coordinates though. I can find close to our final perimeter on a road map but that's all. I wanna say it was obj. gold. I may look back at the AAR and I bet it can tell me! Thanks for the advice!

redfish,
around 92, when they disbanded the 72nd, it became charlie company, 317th. engr. bn. the 317th. came from germany, and the 72nd. was intergated into at benning. where she is still at... i think.

Again, What? The grunt combat units do have their own engineers. That's why there are so many of us around. I don't understand any of the rest of your comment

Haze, my confusion and question was directed at another person that posted after you did. Dagger must have removed him and his posts from the board. He posted after you did about our unit changing to the 317th. He some some dumb iliterate crap. So, I answered his question. Now his comment is gone and it looks like I was asking you. You know the engineers are with all the combat units :). Sorry for the confusion. Your meds were doing fine. Talk to ya soon. I was glad to see a new post here....

Hate to hear about the job. Rough. Sounds like you've had a rough year. I'm hoping it all works out. We are doing ok here. Summer time stuff. Waiting for this site to pick up. Been pretty slow.
