I bowl overhand
that is the one, but 1/11 occupied OP Alpha.. I was C Trp 81 - 83.Not sure where the model of the M577 is; packed up in a box somewhere, I think.
Not sure why I was being coy about the acronym in my original post; it was "FTA." It was so well done, it was beautiful. But this was right at the end of the VOLAR era so senior leaders were quite vigilant and really strict about this sort of thing (rightly so, given the times).
OP Alpha? I only know of one (though certainly there were/are more), but does this mean you were with 3-11ACR (Bad Hersfeld)? We (Div Cav) did border augmentation for the 3rd squadron. Good times.

Fun Travel and Adventure.. wasn't that the commercial before Army Strong??
My best run in with a 2LT (this was 86 in the 1/30th Inf Bn) was when one walked by our washrack looking for S-1 (he was checking in) and I sent him on an adventure through "S-6" and the motor pool.. to have him show up about 2 months later as our Scout Platoon Leader.
LUCKILY he was a good guy with a great sense of humor.. Corporate Lawyer, attended Baylor on a basketball scholarship, graduated Baylor Law, and wanted to pad his political resume with military service and NOT as a lawyer. Joined the Army as a recruit 11B, with OCS. Corporate Lawyer had to go to Benning (as an E-4), complete 11X OSUT THEN had to wait for an OCS date, then chose infantry as his branch upon graduation from OCS. We never went anywhere without a basketball, and he would (now and then) send us Grid Coords to meet at.. Six Bradley's in the middle of a small German town surrounding their basketball court in the middle of REFORGER or other large field exercises
