Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Several people have shown an interest in border tabs. A woman up the road from me makes them for $5.00 a tab. Your cost is $5.00 a tab, I cover the cost of the stamp and the envelope.  They come in Dress and olive drab.  Thanks, 13Fox

If it had not been for Graf. - Hohenfels - and the border, duty in the 3/2 ACR would have been a breeze.

But I remember times for Tank  Qualifications and the like, The duty could have been fairly tough.

Bein' up there, pulling Guard Duty  on the Tank Park, it was sometimes HELL!

And, you can be assured, I   pulled my share of guard duty in them days.

I kin 'member once in the Tank Park, the snow was coming down sideways, and the

wind was Howling, Then the O.D. came by for me to "stand inspection."

I  was very happy to know his jeep seemed  very, very, WARM.

In contrast, I felt froze.

Toujours Pret, All!                     

I'm a little late in seeing this post. Are these tabs still available?

I don't believe so, George. Steve's neighbor was making them for awhile.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
