1952 - M/Sgt. Perry and Jim at the 90mm gun. Perry (old Ft. Sill instructor), wrote up a cannoneer's HOP for the 90mm. He trained the crew and help fire the first round, a WP that was a direct hit on a "Chink" bunker.
1952 - 90mm - note how the muzzle blast melted the snow and made mud out of the frozen dirt. This was a practice position prior to placing the 90mm on the front line for direct fire missions.
