Grepping 1 line above and below pattern

I have a pattern::

xldn3176bap>arj SOCRATES_MAIN_LNX | grep " FA "
10/04/2007 21:01 10/04/2007 21:01 FA 1776752/1 1

I want the line above this line and the line below it too. Can anyone tell me how it can be done?

The GNU version of grep has the "-C" option (context) that does exactly what you need.
