Merry Christmas to all my Cav friends!!!
Hey Troopers, I need a little help remembering a date from Graf. There was an Fatal accident involving a HEMTT Cargo from a Field Artillery unit and one of our Regiments M1's . Col Steele was in command at that time so it would have been between May 87 - Aug 89. The Combat Ground Safety Team at Ft Rucker is trying to locate a copy of the accident report for me. If anyone can help to narrow in on the date please email me or call. email me at: email@example.com or call 719-494-4344. Thank you, Lonny L. Leary
Sorry for your loss Andy. Sounds like your old man was quite a guy.
I'm real sorry to hear of your loss, Andy. My sincere condolences.
Do you know if your dad attended the Air Force 25th anniversary party in Stuttgart, Germany, 1972? I was part of the security detail as a young MP stationed in Stuttgart with the 385th MP Bn.
Just to let my fellow Trooper's know. My Dad Lt. Col. USAFA class of 1959 the first class. Ed H Josephson died 9/4/16. He came to the "Rock" many times because of his work with Textron developing a weapon. And I was there. German guard's got to know him. There was panic on the Rock when he first showed up, being a LTCOL I told everyone don't worry he is my Dad. The weapon he was working on was the WAM. We dropped it on a company of Iraqi tank's 1 shot all tank's dead. My Dad loved the 2d Cavalry.
This Quonset hut was still there too when I visited in 2008.
I had a chance to visit Bindlach last fall. I was stationed there in 83-84. My son currently is an 1st Lt. in the 2nd Cav stationed in Vilseck. We spent a rainy afternoon on the old post. It is now a housing development. Most of the old barracks are gone and replaced by single family homes. Only Delta Company barracks is still there. It is now an apartment building. The regimental HQ is still there and is now a housing complex. The family housing is still there. The old motor pool and the new motor (which was built while I was there) are now part of a business park. The mess hall and commissary are gone, but the PX is still there. It was fun to go back and see Christensen Barracks. The memories started flooding back.
I remember someone on guard at the main gate screwing around with there 45 and pow!! no more live ammo to be loaded in you side arm!!!!!

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.
