Interesting i once knew of an 85th USAFAD (United States Army Field Artillery Detachment) (Pershing) near Geilenkirchen. It was very near the Dutch frontier and the city of Brunssum, (NL) where the Hq's AFCENT was located.
It was part of the 5th FA Group at Duren. Which in turn was part of the 59th Ord Bde out of Pirmasens.
