29TH FIELD ARTILLERY ASSOCIATION

The 29th Field Artillery Regiment Association existed at some point in the past, but seems to have "disappeared" over the years. A reunion was held in Augusta, Georgia in 1980. During 1986, the 6-29 FA was visited by members of the Association over a period of one week. Another reunion was held in 1993, in Virgina, but I've neither heard nor seen any information related to it still existing. As such, I've taken an effort to include all of the former Battalion elements in my efforts. I have the beginings of a database of members I am in contact with, which grows daily! If you've never contacted me before, email me with your assigment data, and I'll add you to my database.

NOTE: If anyone wishes to add more detail to this info, please
provide me with the specifics, and I'll oblige by adding it!
I suspect the Vietnam era units ultimately became the battalion's
I am familiar with during the 1980's era!
