The old 2d Cavalry history and news sites that I ran were on a private server hosted by Isaac Golding, the guy who started the original Dragoon Base on the Microsoft network. He got tired of hosting the sites after several years and shut them down. He taught me what little I know.

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

Comment by Dave Gettman on Tuesday

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.

HOME SWEET HOME

Comment by Dave Gettman on Tuesday

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.

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.
