2. (C) Lessons Learned:
Commander's Observations, Evaluations, and Recommendations:
a. Personnel: None
b. Intelligence: None
(1) Use of Dead-Men
(Logs or Timbers)
While on an operation in support of the 4th Infantry Division, a platoon
of 155mm towed howitzers was airlifted to LZ Powder in Binh Dinh Province.
The positions prepared for these howitzers were cut into the side
of the hill, resulting in one half of the howitzer position being
on solid ground while the other half was on semi-hard fill. One evening
while firing near maximum range with maximum charge, this semi-hard
fill, loosened by daily rains, failed to hold the trails, thus causing
rearward movement of the howitzers while being fired.
A field expedient means of installing dead- men needs to be employed
when a lack of proper material exists. The best type of dead-men require
heavy timbers embedded in the ground to hold the trails in place.
When howitzers are emplaced on filled ground, dead-men (logs or timbers)
must be installed as soon as time permits throughout the 6400 mil
capability of the weapon. When timbers are not available, powder canisters
can be buried upright in the ground, side-by-side and filled with
dirt. These canisters must be dug in deep enough to insure that at
least one half of each canister is embedded in solid ground. When
this is done and the spades are dug prior to firing, the canister
dead-men will hold the weapon in place. As soon as possible, heavy
timbers should be placed in front of the canisters. When the canisters
and timbers in position, uninterrupted firing can be accomplished.
(2) Use of Tracers.
It has been observed that on numerous occasions individuals fire their
ammunition from magazines without knowing that they have done so.
This situation may arise during contact, with the individual attempting
to engage another target with an empty weapon.
In order to prevent this situation, the first two rounds of ammunition
which are loaded into the rifle magazine should be tracers. In the
firing sequence the two tracers would be fired last. When the individual
observes the tracers, he knows immediately to reload. In this way
the soldier will not engage a target with an empty or nearly empty

(1) Internal Corrosion
Prevention on Telephone, TA 312/PT
TA 312/PT developed moisture internally, resulting in corrosion of
wiring and connectors. Equipment reliabillity suffered as a result.
Dessicant bags were placed inside the case near the hand generator
and the case resealed. The telephone under test was then used as a
back-up to an unmodified teelephone. The two were compared as to reliability
and evidence of corrosion over a period of several months. The dessicant
was changed on a monthly basis.
The TA 312/PT reliability of the modified set showed a definite improvement
with little or no detectable corrosion on the internal components
over an extended period of serveral months. During the same period
the unmodified set in similar conditions suffered from considerable
corrosion that inhabited performance and required cleaning several
times. The dessicant used was of a type readily available to artillery
units. It came from discarded freezer containers. However, some small
difficulty with deterioration of paper dessicant bags was experienced
if they are not changed regularly.
That a standardized dessicant package of more durable material be
used. Perhaps a ventilated plastic case for the present bag would
do. Also a standardized location within the telephone and a recommended
time period for changing the dessicant should be determined under

2. Reference item
concerning "Internal Corrosion Prevention on Telephone, TA 312/PT,"
page 12, paragraph 2g(1). Although the idea of placing dessicant in
the TA 312/PT appears to have some merit, there still remains the
possibility of the dissicant bag becoming lodged beneath the contacts
of the hook switch or otherwise creating an interference with mechanical
devices inside the case. This problem with the TA 312/PT, apparently,
has never been addressed before, therefore, it has been referred to
the United States Army Electronic Command (ECOM) Area Office for further
investigation and evaluation.
