It took almost 6 months to get this together and have congress send us a flag that was flown around the Capitol with a letter authenticating the flag written by a member for the Veterans Affairs Committee.

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.
