If you need a link to the Dragoon store, go to the menu at the top of this page where it says Links, and click on 2nd Cav ASSN. There is a link there to the Sutler's Store.

When did you get to the Rock in 1955? You probably missed my dad, as he left in May. He was the motor officer for HQ Co from 1953-55.

Didn't the 2nd Cav rotate back to Ft. Meade from 1956-58?

I spent 32 months on the ROCK from 55-58 . Supply clerk of Hq Co and I spent so much time in Bayreuth that several of the locals called me Burgermeister. "Just where is that place called BORRACHO? Looks familar, like one of the 3 off limit places in Bayreuth in55. I spent a lot of time at the Gasthaus Schere or Cherry Bar on Markgrafenallee. The three off limit places where the Japanese Teahouse ablock from the Bahnhof, the DP Camp down by the river , we called it a creek, and we were not allowed to travel through the town of Bindlach if we wanted to walk there it was O.K. but no cars or Army trucks. I am not sure why but it was rumored that an Army truck hit an old lady down there in the late 40's and to appease the mayor the US Army banned all traffic from that road.

Who remember this place?
Comment by Jim Ward on November 29, 2008 at 12:00am
My first and most lasting memory of the Rock was my first day there. An alert! I wasn't assigned to a crew yet, so I was told to sit in the back of a 113 on post and monitor the radio traffic. There wasn't any because we were under a radio blackout! Talk about not knowing what the hell was going on. Ah, memories. : )

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.
