Dave,very good viewing and great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dave, I was just glanzing at what you have here.  I still have my book from 62-63.  It brings back a lot of memories from when I served with the Cav.  Wish we had one from 59-61 when I was there the first time.  In between my two tours, I was with the 2nd Armored Division in hood till I was sent back to Germany, I have my book from there.
I don't remember any yearbooks from my time 72-74 Don't remember any troop photos hanging anywhere,just the beer machine.

Cool, wish there were more posted

I see my old First Shirt made SGM! 


SGM Sworn. He was one awesome TOP, took good care of us.

The old yearbooks are great.  There were a few names I had forgotten, and was reminded of them in looking thru the 1961 and 1962-63 yearbooks.  I still have my 1964 yearbook....somewhere.


Does anyone have a K Troop Yearbook from 66,67,68, or 69? I served in K troop during those years and would like to see if I might possibly in one of those books. Thanks

Well, there I am in the Color Guard 1964,w/the Band out @ the Stadium, on the right Guard unbelievable, Dave!  Holding that sabre w/cotton gloves could become problematic after awhile. Also, I'm pretty sure, I worked on this Annual with Rod Nash. The internet, got to love it! Thanks

PFC German, the smartest guy in the room. Dad was a retired General and he grew up in Spain, spoke 5 languages. Worked in Border Operations. Was Magic Wop's and my roomie, these are gold.

Glad you enjoyed them Chuck. That's what it's all about.

Good to hear from you again!

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.
