The Army probably opted to upgrade the railhead at the LOG Center, if they've done so yet. Perhaps Fort Lewis has'nt gotten the upgrades that Ft. Hood, Ft. Riley, Ft. Carson and most of the other CONUS manuever unit posts have gotten?
P51- good to meet a member of one of the Regular Army's elite, and oldest divisions. My grandfather operated with 2nd ID after it landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy on D-Day+2, when it was attached to V Corps. He said they were a tough bunch, operating against German SS panzer troops and Luftwaffe paratroopers in Normandy and again in the Ardennes during the Battle of the Bulge. In that vein, I have an uncle who was based in the RoK in 1969-70 as a member of the 1(M)/17 Infantry of the 7th ID. At that time the 7th ID was based in the RoK as a part of the Eigth Army with the 2nd ID. He concurs with my grandfather in that the 2nd ID was, and still is, a very tough bunch. You can't beat that Indianhead patch, although members of the other RA divisions, past and present, will diagree and say their's is the best. Thank you for your service, P51.
