149th Guards Motor Rifle Regiment[edit]

Hi Buckshot06. I have found a fairly complete history for this regiment from an Afghan veteran. It includes various changes to its TO&E, its activity in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, and the assertion that Soviet Troops were not withdrawn from Afghanistan until 1989. A fake unit listed as 3149th regiment of the 2201st division was created from mostly end-of-service term and rear services of the Army personnel with freshly repainted equipment meant for imminent scrapping and dressed in a new 'experimental' uniform. I will contact the author (former officer) and ask for permission to translate, but the document is now 9 pages in Arial 9, so if you don't mind, you will need to do the final edit to fit the article I expect you will want to create. Ok?-- mrg3105mrg3105 22:46, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I have received the permission from the author to translate and publish the story of the regiment. --mrg3105mrg3105 09:57, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, but it doesn't go here, sorry, if it's new archive material. We can only put things here that are not Original Research - see WP:OR. It belongs on Wikisource. Buckshot06 (talk) 20:39, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean by "if it's new archive material"? These are memoirs of a member of the unit, and include excerpts from the history of the unit before his service, and after.--mrg3105mrg3105 10:05, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Please read the page, WP:OR, I directed you to. Unpublished material needs to be published somewhere else before it comes to Wikipedia. Try Wikisource first. 203.97.106.191 (talk) 22:54, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok, since the cances of this guy's work being published as a book are virtually 0, this means I will not be spending time publishing it on Wikisource. I primarily saw it as a contribution to the 201st history, but if you are not interested then that's fine with me--mrg3105mrg3105 01:06, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm confused. I thought our off-wiki discussion covered this. If you can get the author's permission to reproduce it under the GFDL in accordance with WP:COPYREQ, it seems you can mount it - and I thought that's what you were going to do? Buckshot06 (talk) 02:46, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
