1-158 Cav Links:
Members of the 29th Aviation Brigade conducted a Military Exchange to Germany during June 12-25, 1999.
The highly successful mission to Germany was accomplished by fifty eight members of the Maryland Army National Guard. The leader was CPT Ray Williams of the 1-158 Cavalry. The main purpose was to develop a better understanding between NATO partners and create a stronger alliance. The events in Bosnia and Kosovo underscore the significance of cooperation between allied military forces. This exchange was one of several that have been arranged since 1995.
The main group arrived at the Cologne-Bonn airport by C141 and promptly unloaded baggage.
The next step was to board busses and vans for remaining travel to final destinations. Two groups were formed. One group of nine went with MAJ Guster, pictured below with the beard, to Roth and the larger group continued on to Augustdorf.
The beginning and end of the trip for the larger group was in Bonn.
Schedule for the group in Augustdorf basically follows:
