Harry, I took hydrochlorothiazide for many years but I was getting too dehydrated so I quit about 4 months ago. Doctor wants me back on it again now.

Dave, Flagstaff is freezing in the winter, and very cold in Phoenix.  Lived there on assignment 3/8/95 to 7/1/95

A lot of retirement communities but I would rather be here in Florida, winter and summer, than Arizona.  Even though this was the longest winter we ever had.

By the way guys, I am celebrating my 57th anniversary of being married to the same woman.

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.
