RIP old friend
The Passing of Major M. Schoenbrun brings me here today.
SGT Major Mike Schoenbrun
Long before i even new i would join the Military I new this man - father of a H.S. Buddy. I asked him if he was Nam Vet because Bindlach sounded like a Nam name and he had a banner hanging on his shop wall from the 2ACR. He told me the story of the Rock.
It would only be 6 years latter while studying the Unit History that I would discover that my own ancestor Gideon Pillow was a former commander it lead it from Vera Cruz to Mexico City.
Now Mike was neither a SGT MAJOR or Major, Just a rock solid NCO named Major - who had a helluva good time running the Maint Sec out of the old Messerschmidt Ammo Magazine. Which Ironically would be my office twenty years later that I ran the ADA Section out of while cross training as a Cavalry Officer.
If anyone remembers him feel free to comment and i'll pass it along to his son.
Just want say Happy Easter to all my Cav buddies. Have a great day.
I was not one of them.
Had a similar incidentt happen in Hq Co in1956 with a fraulein.There were 8 of us in room 7 or 8 on the first floor of Hq. Co , one night I got up to go to the john walked out to the hallway down to the restroom and as met by a naked fraulein coming out of the rest room. I said HI and she went on by and she went into the room next to ours . Several days later all hands went to the dispensary.
I had to saddle up Paco and he looked at me like WHHAAAT? I really need to ride more often...good videos

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.
