Been gone fro a couple of days,, I was @ V.A. Ann Arbor, I have a blockage in my right leg, and surgeon could not get to it.. so In a couple of weeks he going in frm another angle,,,, seems the dye they use is radio active so the can track blood flow,, but you can only have so much at a time or kidney damage will result. mean time some discomfort.  But I gotta give praises to the Staff there almost like going to a resort. if you need something and at all possible they get it for you.

Good morning Troops. Everyone asleep? The start of the Memorial Day weekend. I wish you all a healthy one. Hard to say "Happy Memorial Day"
but wear your 2Cav caps and stand tall. 3 Delta out.

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.
