How did the Cook's Tank get down to HQ?  We went somewhere, tank in front of chow hall, got home, tank gone!  After some reconnaissance I was told it was driven down there.  I was surprised they got that thing running.  Who did it?

Hi Frank R. Twitcell, I was in How Battery 1st Squadron from 74-77. I remember LTC Dennis Malcor well. Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Malcor  passed away in 2016. Here is his obituary.

Sept 75 -Sept 80, I had many great memories.  First it was the tight group in c Trp 3rd Plt. Troop 1SG Miller certainly was one of the best 1SG I had the chance to work for.  SSG Cassidy was the next, cannot forget Sgt Jeriken squad leader.  These men were my mentor that made me have the drive which helped me have the success I have had..  Their leadership and professionalism gave me the direction along with the success to stay in the military too retire.

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.
