My pleasure, Robert. Was the one you saw similar to this?

Dear Dave:

Yes, that is a fine coin to represent the 2nd Armored Cavalry. Thank you very much. My interest was piqued when I saw some challenge coins on a "Mail Call" segment. One of them was a red/white, square, guide-on pennant for the 2nd Cavalry.  Anyway, my order is now on the way.  I appreciate that you pay attention to things of interest to all of us....

Hello Sigmund:  Speaking of having things to represent our adventures in the 2nd Armored Cavalry, is there a challenge coin that we can acquire?   Please advise...

Can't wait to see it Sig. How's the weather down there? Dry and hot up here. Officially in the top five longest dry spells in Seattle history. Just as dry or dryer here in Tacoma.

Good morning troops, having my Company ( Howitzer Company ) reproduced so I can hang it on the corner of my house, pictures later !

It's my birthday month, Chief. I see the youngsters get away with it so I thought I'd give it a try.

Thank you Harold, but no thanks. Once in the Army was enough for me.

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.
