D battery 2/4th activated April 12, 1969

Delta battery was the primary support of the 6/31st from Can Giouc until the end of the 3rd brigade in Sept. of 1970. Found this piece in the Old Reliable newspaper. Looks like it was formed from another unit and then attached to the 1/11th Arty and at that time supported the 1st "Recondo" Brigade. Looks like one typo in the story "2/47th".

I was part of this and came from B btry 6/77th FA to D btry 2/4th FA. About the time we came in to Can Tho from Seven Mountains (Parrot's Beak) region and then formed up the new battery, but don't remember seeing this article. Thanks ! I'll print it and put it in my Viet Nam box of memorabilia- Jerry (Bullet) Bowman <p></p><i></i>

Jerry, just to make clear about the Old Reliable newspapers. They are posted at the 2nd Battalion 60th Infantry site as a service to all who are interested. The list of the newspapers they have is:
