  1. I served in the Reception Station for the 84th β€œRailspliters” Division in Milwaukee during the 1970s after having served in C/2/3/199th Light Infantry Brigade in Vietnam in 1966/1967.
    My father, Colonel William J. Carr Sr became the Commander of I believe it was the 1st. Brigade until his retirement. He is buried in Arlington.
