Anyone out there who did their Infantry and Armored basic training back then? I was in D-8-3 for Infantry Training (Company D, 8th Battalion, 3rd Regiment) from March through early May of 1959, and in D-1-1 for Armor Training
(Company D, 1st Battalion, 1st Training Regiment). through the end of May, 1959. I served under the aegis of a Critical Skills Deferment, which called for a six-year enrollment in the Army Reserve that included 3 months of Active Duty and 5-3/4 years of service in the Inactive Reserve with a unit based at Indiantown Gap, PA. It was a great deal!!!.
