I was with HHC, 1st/7th Inf Cottonbalers from 1963-1966
in Aschaffenburg with the Medical Platoon. I retired in 1981 with 21 years service. In the 21 years I spent in the military I would rate this assignment as my favorite.My wife and I really enjoyed Aschaffenburg.My
CO was CPT Anderson and the 1st Sgt was 1SG Ramirez two of the best. I am looking for a set of cottonbaler unit crest, if anyone can help me email me at dgmalayne@yahoo.com I will buy them and pay for the shipping.

I served in the 3-7 IN twice. I was the S3Air of 3-7 in Vietnam during Tet 1968, and Commanded Echo Company until I left to be an Aide to the Former Commander of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade as he made MG and became the J1 of MACV.

I later was assigned to the 3-7 as the S1 when it was part of the 197th Brigade at Fort Benning Georgia in 1973-74.

My only other connection was to assign Infantry Captains to the 7th Infantry while an Assignment Officer at Infantry Branch at MILPERCEN from 1979-81.

I serve as Chaplain at the Springfield (Ohio) Masonic Retirement Community. I share here about the death of William C. Pursch on Friday January 12 2018.

William's military career began in 1960 with the 7th Infantry (Cottonbalers).

There will be a Masonic Service and Memorial Service for William on Saturday February 10, 2018 at 2 PM in the Burkhart Auditorium, 2655 W National Road, Springfield OH 45504.

He is to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery later in 2018.

Served with 1st/7th Infantry Battalion with Headquarters company as a 36 Kilo from 1976 until 1979 had a lot of good friends we had a brotherhood that took care of each other. I'm glad to see that there is a 7th Infantry Regiment Association, I can truly say that I am proud to have served as a Cotton Baler. And who knows with any luck I maybe able to find some friends that I served with through the association.

Good Afternoon All,
My name is Shaniqua Rogers and I am trying to locate some information on my grandfather Charles Colston Sr.(Alabama). I Know that he served with this division from 1960-1962. I am attempting to put together a shadow box in commemoration of his service and 76th birthday. I am currently deployed and have already requested that a flag be flown in his honor. Was just hoping you all had some information about his service. Thanks in advance for your time and have a great day!

V/r,
Shaniqua Rogers
