Hello from Austin TX,
Need some info on the 49th Armour Div (TXNG).
Looking for data on the Caverly units.
What tanks did they use in the 70's and 80's?.
How were they organized?

Thanks for your time and help.

Worth

Hi Worth! Hi Folks!

This may not help any, but on the small chance it might in some way.

Date of info is October 1998, from the AUSA Green Book issue of Army Magazine.

Division HQ, Austin, MG Federico Lopez III, CSM Donnie L. Strickland
2nd Armored Brigade, Fort Worth, Col. James Bisson, CSM Douglas Box
3rd Armored Brigade, Dallas, Col. Thomas Roman, CSM Garry Worrell
36th Infantry Brigade, Houston, Col. Isaac Gusukuma, CSM Alvaro Arguello
Div Artillery, San Antonio, Col. Victor Ortiz, CSM Herbert Dean
Aviation Brigade, Austin, Col. Gerard Nery CSM vacant
Engineer Brigade, Austin, Col. Larry Patterson, CSM Richard Mikesa
Support Command, Austin, Col. Edward Goldsmith, CSM Bobby Adams

Again, passed your zone of research, but maybe it can help you work backwards, this info is from Armor Magazine, the November-December 1998 issue.
1st Sqdn, 124th Cav Regt
1st Bn, 112 Armor, 3rd Bde
2nd Bn, 112th Armor, 2nd Bde
3rd Bn, 112th Armor, 2nd Bde
4th Bn, 112th Armor, 36th Bde
5th Bn, 112th Armor, 3rd Bde

Good Luck,
Sgt, Scouts Out!

Back in the 1970's I was assembling photos for a Squadron book on the M48 (I sold my photos and stuff to Jim Mesko who was also working on a similar project). Anyway, I had a nice series of photos from the PR officer of TX ArNG that showed them to have M48A1s into the 1970s. After the adoption of the M48A5 conversion program, I'm sure that they were upgraded to M60-series or at least M48A5s. One contact at Ft. Knox in the late 70s said that the guys from Anniston were so hot to make more M48A5s that they were asking about the "gate guard" M48s at Knox.
