  Photo of NCOs from B Co (ABN-RGR) 1/29 USAIS in 1975. As C and later, B company this unit provided the Ranger department with a platoon at each camp to act as enemy forces for the Ranger classes. The platoons rotated between the camps every three weeks. CPT Robert L. Howard was commander of the unit when I was assigned there in July 1974. I'm sending this photo because of the many weeks we all spent at Camp Merrill. I'm almost hidden behind the mustachioed guy who is behind the 1SG. SSG Sammy Spears is the the last row, second from the photo's left.   Me on one the Ranger objectives as a member of the Circle-Trigon aggressor force in 1975.
