Help on VN Era Photo ID

Recommended Posts

Hello -- Can you experts out there identify what unit is in this picture. Is it Armored Cavalry?  What Regiment, Battalion , etc.?  I assume it is Troop C.

 

Thanks so much.

It looks like it is a photo of a training class, as opposed to a unit.

Thanks for the info!  Can you help with the significance of the 4 the 13 and the C?

 

An Armored Training class?

Looks like a Drill Sargent but I don’t get why the Armored triangle. Mike

It is likely an Armor School AIT image, hence the armor triangle. 1972 would be when training brigades were how basic and advanced training units were organized at the Army BCT and AIT schools. C-4-13 (or C-13-4?) would be C Company, 4th (or 13th?) [Training] Battalion, 13th (or 4th?) [Training] Brigade. Is a guidon visible in the image?

Another possibility is that there was Basic Combat Training at Ft. Knox in 1972.
