Gene G, I would only get stung badly if I did that.

If Dave was given this web-site (DRAGOONBASE)  then I FEEL WE SHOULD ALL BE HERE STILL WITH OUR COMMUNICATIONS AND STORIES.

DO NOT ABANDON THIS OLD TIMERS WEB SITE EITHER.

Y'ALL HEAR.

MORE FOR YOU OLDTIMERS

A couple of elderly men were venting their frustrations about the woes of modern technology.

"I just can't ever seem to remember my darn passwords," grumbled one of them.

The other one smiled. "Oh really? I can never forget mine!"

"How do you manage it?" asked the first guy curiously.

"Well, I simply set all my passwords to 'Incorrect' so that whenever I'm told that my password is incorrect, I'll remember it!

FOR ALL YOU OLDTIMERS

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. 

The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great, I would recommend it very highly." 

The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?" 

The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has thorns?" 

"Do you mean a rose?" 

"Yes, that's the one," replied the man.

He then turned toward the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"

Dave, do you want us to chip in again?  Are you going to put this on all dragoon base sights?  

Last time I went through paypal.  Let us know

dave, did you pay that 600 dollars out of your pocket? if so,i think we should all chip in to help.

Just got an interesting call from a gentleman in Gary, Indiana who told me Robb Russell's son sold him Dragoon Base and he wants to turn it over to us. We just have to figure out how to do it.

I'm not sure if he actually owns the site itself or just the domain name. They are two different things. We will have to see what happens. I just recently payed NING $600 to keep the site going another year.

The 2019 Reunion will be at the Harrah’s North Kansas City Casino and Hotel on April 25 – April 28th. In addition to the normal opening reception, punch ceremony and banquet, there will be optional trips to the Truman Presidential Library, the WWI Museum (located in Kansas City) and to Fort Scott.

Please mark your calendars and save the date. We are hoping for a strong turnout of cavalrymen and ladies.

We expect to open registration in Sept, 2018.

Future reunions – the 2021 reunion will be at Ft. Benning where we hope to dedicate an lasting and encompassing memorial to the history of the Regiment and to those who served and died as Cavalry Troopers.

2023 is tentatively set to be in Montana to trace the 2d Cavalry in the Second Indian Wars.
