Toujours Pret to all.  I went up to Lake Mary/Sanford FL area this week.

My son had a heart operation and has to go and have a pacemaker installed.

While I was in the waiting room (I wear my 2nd ACR hat all the time.) this guy comes over to me and says he was in the 2nd cav Desert Storm and enduring freedom but was dishonorably discharged and he acknowledged he deserved it.

Loved the outfit but se la vie.

Good Day to all you old timers . I was watching On iPad, Movie Jeremiah Johnson again for 20th time and grabbed a pic of Redford’s cavalry cap with 2nd Cavalry. I know we discussed this some time ago but CRS syndrome prevails in old timers, lol!  So here it is again for your screen saver pleasure:
