    B Btry, 1/41FA - 1st Platoon

      I had the distinct honor and privilege to serve with Platoon Sergeant Bobby L. Case in Schwäbisch Gmünd, W. Germany from Sep73-Jun74 in a thermonuclear Pershing Missile Battery. SFC Case was an outstanding leader among men. His insightful personnel management allowed 1st Platoon to exceed all expectations. SFC Case led our platoon by himself with no officer (platoon leader) for seven months. Although SFC Case was an infantry sergeant, he astutely and quickly grasped the complex workings of a mobile nuclear missile system and most importantly--fully trusted his enlisted subordinates. A true leader! Salute!
