We had an interpreter at the MP station in Neu Ulm, Germany, named Zabo. His way of insulting someone was to call them a "F****** Engineer!" And he could do it in any language you wanted.

Thanks for the birthday wishes guys. Today is the 29th anniversary of my 39th birthday. At work today, have a couple of motors on pumps to replace, couple of electrical problems to rewire, and of course all the "I'm to cold, I'm to hot" calls. Aah the life of a Building Engineer. Have a great day Troopers.

Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool, so I gave him a glass of water.

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.
