Fort Campbell, KY – Twenty one years ago, a platoon sergeant choose a single Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadet from his platoon to fire a Vulcan air defense weapon system. Although the weapon system was on the verge of retirement from the Army, that old Vulcan had a lasting impact on the cadet.
Jared Galazin, the cadet, would go on to choose air defense artillery as one of his top three branches because of the time he spent on the gun. Now he is a lieutenant colonel and commander of the 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
