Nelson, do you remember in 63 or 64 we had sent a platoon of men down to Bad Tolz to train with the 10 Special Forces.  I still have photo's from that trip down there.  We had about a platoon size of personnel that went down.  I have tried to remember when it was.

Edward N. Voke, I couldn't remember the date, I had served with him before and could not remenber his name.  I was the one who prepared his goods for shipment.  His brother was in europe and returned to the states with brother.   I wis I could recall all the information concerning him.

It was at Camp Gates; I was the acting XO for Troop I; should have been 1963. I just took a look at the Stars and Stripes  European archives, entering Camp Gates/death/ 1963 to early 1964 date parameters.  Five possibles popped up, but I'm not a member, so couldn't see the actual results.  Glad to read that Dick's memory brain hookups are in better shape than mine!

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.
