Every cloud has a silver lining (except for the mushroom shaped ones, which have a lining of Iridium & Strontium 90)

251st Ordnance Detachment
Activated in November 1964 in the Ordnance Guided Missile School at Redstone Arsenal, it was intended to accompany the 2nd Battalion, 79th Artillery to Korea. It's deployment overseas was canceled in late Spring of 1965. Instead, it deployed to Fort Sill, Oklahoma in January 1966 where is undertook the backup maintenance support role for units deployed to Blanding and Green River for firing. It was deactivated, I understand, in 1968.
Info provided by: Commanding Officer from the date of its activation through March or April 1967 when he
departed to Vietnam via the Ordnance School at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
David M. McClellan - Lieutenant Colonel, United States Army, Retired
FYI...251st Ord. Det. was not deactivated in 1968. I was in it from 67 through 69 at Ft Sill. Pretty much a do
 nothing unit. No currency training, no missiles, no launchers to work on except for a couple of months.
 Spent most of our time on riot control duty.    Richard Kendall
