    REPLACE THIS TEXT WITH YOUR PHOTO COMMENTS. IF YOU WANT TO REQUEST A COPY OF THIS PHOTO, FILL OUT FORM BELOW.With all due respect, I'd suggest the photo is an Army gun, especially if it was taken in '68. I served with 5th 175mm Guns (SP Rein) at the Rockpile from mid '69 until we evacuated the base to pull back to JJ Carroll. The photo is taken from the main road (Rt-9) that passed through camp. When I was there (later than the photo), the Army 175s were on the north side of the road, and we were directly across on the south side. However, our battery did not have 175 guns until around March of '69 when the old 155mm guns were replaced with the 175s. For our battery, the rein meant that the six 175mm guns of the battery were reinforced with two 8 howitzers. -Submitted by: Lou Milanesi [drloum@gmail.com] 2006-11-28
