Details of each Composite
This photos has 79 soldiers wearing their dress uniforms, while the officers are in combat fatigues. This battery is
smaller than the other batteries. The front row has 34 men and includes 4 officers. Even though they wear their
dress uniforms, may of the soldiers do not appear to be wearing their uniform properly. Several have their
hats pushed too far back.
Left section shows the Photo ID number.
2 - This section overlaps or repeats the two soldiers that are included in Section 1. Private Olan Allen is on the back row, 13th from the left, or the 4th from left in this view. The tall soldier to the left of the officers is probably First Sergeant Earle Carlisle(A). The sergeeant to the right is probably Master Sergeant John Murray. Two of the soldiers on the back row seem rather old. The First Sergeant for the battery is probably the sergeant to the left of the officers.
3 - This section has no overlap with Section 2. The officer on the left edge is wearing glasses. Lt. Walter Tanzer was a member of this battery and later transferred to Battery B.
4 - Last section. The 3rd soldier from the right on front row is missing his collar brass. The one on the far right is wearing his ribbon on the pocket flap.
