Possibly... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/187th_Inf ... ed_States) as BDE can be used as an acronym for Brigade. In 67 (which I got from other post) the Brigade would have been located in Boston, Mass. which is where I believe you are located. Sorry, can't make out the right... Maybe ... Company A became 987th Personnel Service Company in 1990
Activated 7 January 1963 at Boston, Massachusetts
Location changed 25 October 1971 to Wollaston, Massachusetts; on 13 July 1976 to Fort Devens, Massachusetts
Inactivated 14 April 1994 at Fort Devens, Massachusetts
1960 M151 Run #1 (working on it)
