"Another Glorious Chapter"

Over the years there have been monthly collages. Most saluted different contributors to the Album. This new forum is just to keep the collages and remarks about them from being totally forgotten.

"Another Glorious Chapter"

Postby Niner Alpha » Thu Dec 26, 2013 2:05 pm

Looking to replace the site Christmas collage I spied this information in what was probably the last publication of the 9th in Vietnam. It was published in late 1970 after only one Brigade was left of the 9th...and about two or three months from being dissolved altogether. It was the last hurrah for the 9th Division. Seems like pretty meaningless chest thumping now for a Brigade that was about to be non existent..

We were organized into Division, Brigade, Battalion and then company back then. There weren't any "Regiments" in the order of things. But I don't imagine there is such a thing as a Brigade Association in our lifetimes. The 3rd Brigade Go Devils. Somehow "Polar Bears" didn't seem to fit us except as some kind of ironic joke.....Go Devils has a better ring to it.

The whole magazine is here:
