Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.


I've had a few inquiries lately about my 2d Cavalry beer glass, so I decided to have some custom made. I should have them in about two weeks and there will be a limited quantity available (30). Anyone interested can leave a message here. First come, first served.

The glass itself will be different than the one pictured here, but the logo will be the same (I hope), satin etched into the glass. It is a 16 oz. Grand Pilsner glass, and will go for about $15.95 + S&H.

Several of you should have your 2d Dragoon glasses by now, and more are on the way. Now it is time to pay dues of ownership.

From time to time I will be listing some names. These are very special names, very honored names, yet sadly unknown or forgotten names. These men not only served honorably and gallantly as 2d Dragoons, they died during the performance of that service.

When I post these names and you should happen upon them, at your own leisure, in your own way, please join me in filling your glass and paying tribute to these troopers who gave their all for our freedom and our country.

Say each man's name aloud and thank him for his service, his bravery, his sacrifice. Feel him watching you so that his memory may live on and his honorable deed not be forgotten.

You have your mission.

Put me in coach. Can I pay through pay pal?
Michael, I'll have to check into the Paypal thing, but that is a good idea. Had an account there for years so I could pay for all the eBay stuff I buy and donate to our museum.
I wat one also! Thanks Dave!

OK, I checked into the Paypal thing and it will cost me about a buck per transaction but it will work. When we get this thing rolling I can just send an invoice and then you can either pay through Paypal with account balance transfer or credit card, or you can mail me a check.

I still have to figure out shipping charges, insurance if wanted, cost of shipping supplies, etc.

I want one !!!!!


Can you bring one in Vilsek in July?

I'll pay you there

Not too keen on carrying glass in my luggage, Ben. Had stuff break on me before. Gonna be packed pretty tight as it is. We'll figure something out. Might just mail it with your trivia prizes. I have to go to the post office to mail internationally.

Well, I didn't thought about the carrying.

If paypal is OK for paying, you can send me the information about shipping and paying.


Thank you so much


Greetings from Belgium.

I'll get you one Ben, one way or another.
count me in.....
Dave, this is like feeding the pigeons. Everone came out of their coops like you would get a year of free bier with the stein!
You got that right, Michael!
I'll order one also; can pay thru paypal also.




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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
