Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

I guess the Cafe Roma was the one thing all 3/2 ACR Amberg Vets have in common. simply everyone had to go there at one time or another. Some guys, at times, wanted to go somewhere away from all of the g i 's (wonder why?); but there certainly was nothing wrong with the roma.

I went there once with Dieter, the bartender at the Officers Club, we had a few beers. and by the time the pizza came I was hungry enough to eat the spare off a 114.

I still remember that pizza, it was still sizzling, and it was a product of the roma. They made the dough, cooked it in their own slate ovens.

Sometimes, when filled to the rafters with troopers, the place could get raucous, but most of the time I didn't really notice.

I would almost travel back to Amberg to go to the Roma, and if I was there, I would go to the pizzaria victoria, or whatever it is now - just to check it out.

Anybody got a special memory of the Roma, paternity suit, anything?

Does anyone have any pictures of the Cafe Roma?

Me and the owner of the Roma in 67.

Thanks Dennis. The Roma was almost a daily destination while we were in the rear. Loved the schnitzels as well as going there for a few Falken Golds and shots of Jaegermeister.





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.
