If you don't like the song, you can turn the sound off and just watch the gorgeous girls on roller skates.

Guy selling that beret on eBay right now. Says it is 2d Cavalry Division from the 70's. I don't think so!

As far as I know there is only one Cavalry division, and it is the 1st. There hasn't been a 2d Cavalry Division since WW II.

Could this be 2d Cavalry Regiment from the all-beret Army, decades after the time that only border Cav troopers wore the black beret?

I agree with you Dave. We had a butter bar that realized he didn't know everything ant grew up to be good leader.

HARRY, I'm like John, I can't remember to much any more, some much has happened over the years, mentally and physically.

RC, tell John the next time you speak to him, I said hello.

Hey Gene, it's that mind blowing moment when the man in charge gets his head out of his fifth point of contact. Very rare phenomenon.
