There will be no change in com- mand, with Capt. Paul Koch re- roaming as Company Commander, and enlisted men simply being transferred to the new unit on pc- pen THE UNIT'S present artillery equipment will move on to some other unit in the state and tle Shelton unit will receive its Tank Company eqmpment, including tanks, in the near future. The last command inspection, as an artillery unit was held Mon- day night at the guard's regular meeting, with officers from tim Battalion headquarters in Aber- deen doing the inspecting. Battalion officers from the tank unit visited also. The designation of the Shelton unit as a tank company was made partly to get the unit off proba- tion. M/Sgt. Kenneth Rose, unit administrator, said The number of men in a tank company is less than in an artil- lery ba{tery, which puts the Shel- ton unit closer to its minimum strength. The unit has 35 enlisted men and two officers at present. Rose add. The minimum strength for the tank company is 43 enlisted n'n so the unit is still seeking enlistees. Rose said. There are also openings for some Lieuten- ants, he said. EX-SERVICEMEN who have expermnce in a tank unit will be welcomed. Rose said. Headquarters of the Tank Bat- talion is in Centralia. Other com- panies are in Olympia and Long- view. The Centralia and Longview units remain the same as before the reorganization. The Olympia unit was formerly an iufantry unit Battery B, First Howitzer Bat- taller. 248th Artillery, is now in Paulsbo. wlieh formerly had the tank company which was switched to Shelton. The First Battalion. 2481h Artil- lery, which was formerly compris- ed of units in Aberdeen and Shel- ton, now has units in Aberdeen, Port Orchard, Port Angeles and Paulsbo. In addition to becoming a new unit, the Shelton National Guard will be meeting in newly-redecor- ated quarters, with painting ot the armory in progress.
