Dragoon Base

Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Steve “Steve-O” Bowen, of Wilmington, North Carolina, died 7 May 2014 of wounds inflicted during his long battle with cancer. His courage in the face of his own mortality serves as an inspiration to all who knew him, and reflects great credit upon his family, friends, and service with the 2d Cavalry Regiment.
Steve-O served in Bamberg from December 1978 to November 1981, first with G Trp as a FIST track driver, then with E Trp, H Co, and back to Eagle as a FIST Chief Fire Support Coordinator.

Rest in peace brother.. God bless..

You are gone but you will not be forgotten.

Rest In Peace Brother Steve,God Bless,,,

Will always remember your courage while facing a certain death, A Man's man, that what Steve O. was and will remain in  the hearts and minds of the 2nd. Cavalry.

My sentiments exactly Ronny, I hope to have that kind of courage that he and brother James showed us, when my time comes. Fiddlers green should be a wild time when we get there.

Should be pretty damn crowded by the time I get around to showing up.

 I look forward to seeing you at our last permanent duty station.

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.
