I would like to thank Charles E. Martin, President & Historian of the 18th Artillery Group Association for all his help and his help in making contact with SGT Ralph B. Lawson’s son Jerry who is helping preserve the history of the 74th Field Artillery Battalion (HD) when his father was at Fort Ord, California. Ralph originally was with the 18th Field Artillery Regiment at Fort Sill when they were moved out to Camp Clayton, soon to be called Fort Ord where they became part of the 76th Field Artillery Regiment bringing it up to full strength before it was broken down to the 74th, 75th, and 76th Field Artillery Battalions in 1941. Sergeant Lawson has had a long history of serving with U.S. Army horse and mule units and we will try to cover this fascinating history also. I would like to thank Ralph’s son Jerry who without his help this project would have not been possible. Ralph B. Lawson is currently living in Hollister, MO.
