Co G (-) 143d INF

I am interested in preserving the history of Co G (-) 143d INF, and would appreciate OPSEC/PERSEC guidance in preserving operational photographs, orders, etc. from the late 80s time frame.

I also have contact information for the 'keeper of the list' of the Houston Light Guard Veterans Association and will PM the information if requested.

Thank you.

Have you tried contacting the TXARNG for this information?

I have not, due to the Col. Brito scandal during that time period. Teams were publicly exposed when the Houston Chronicle and Dallas Morning News published operational specifics.

There was no question, viewing the massive amount of battle streamers, that we were standing in the shadow of giants.

I was a G spotter from 89-91, but have no souvenirs or POCs for ya.

As I remember it, it was Co G, 143 IN (ABN) (LRS) [I may have transposed them, I don't have my love book handy and not sure if I have any orders, etc], then G/143IN (LRS). I couldn't give you when that changed either.

CO G (-) would have been HQ/1/2 in Houston, with 3/Riggers in Austin. the company was consolidated at Ellington ANB in... '90?

I'm also not sure what year in the 80s (maybe late 70s) they went from a Ranger to a LRS/LRSU Company.

I know people who are currently in 1/143. when the battalion was stood up, they changed the beret flash and wings background.

not sure if you knew that or wanted to go back past the 80s.

there's at least one more member here as well.

Just to be clear: you want to find out how to preserve your personal materials with the right repository, or you are among a group of those who have lot of material and are looking for what to do with it?

Personal materials. Orders, reports, and policy. Nothing marked classified but I signed an OPSEC Policy Statement that declares these items For Official Use Only. Photographs, forbidden by the TXARNG but taken by 'agencies involved' were given to me upon ETS.

I'm assigned to the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, but not to AHEC. If you have any questions or concerns, I can go over and speak to someone for you. I'm sure they'll answer questions to their website.
