"Mike Golf" is the phonetic name for the Master Gunner in the unit.

Yup. And "Iron" is for "Old Ironsides", which is the 1st Armored Division.

I didn't want to presume what the call sign was, since there are several of those floating around, but I knew the MG part of it :)

Thanks, folks!

Seems to be quite the jocular bunch. Great!

Oh no, we're quite a sober bunch...
