Dave, that is something I have thought of many times, but didn't know how to broach the subject.  Apparently I wasn't alone.

If I had the time, money and technical skills Harry, I would buy a server and set up my own network and try to transfer everything over to it. But that too would last only as long as I do.

Well, I ranted and raved enough to get the site turned back on until April. Nice to be back, but I think it is only temporary. NING is getting to be a bunch of money grabbers, so it looks like we will be bringing Dragoon Base to a close permanently in April 2021. I will try to keep you posted if there are any further developments.

Nothing new about the site.  it is impossible to approve new members. I guess nothing lasts forever. If you can, go to the main page and add a comment to the entire membership and fill them in. They should be alerted about the possibility that Dragoon Base might not be around too long, lest they lose contact with other members.

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.
