Thank you Frank, still got you beat by 6 or 7 yrs.

Think about doing the honor flight.  It's one hell of an experience you will never forget in your life.

Good afternoon Troopers and Oldtimers! ... ..

Hope that everyone is doing all right. We're finally getting some cooler weather down here in FL. Got down to 46 deg F this morning.

Looks like I missed Harold's Birthday, SO, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, HAROLD!!

Thanksgiving is next Week and Christmas is just around the corner. Man, time is flying fast!

Wishing you all good health and happiness. Take care.

He served with 25th Infantry and 2d Cav at Ft. Lewis and Vilseck in 2006. He went to 7th Army after that.

David, when they wear the crest on the right breast like that it denotes they served with that unit in combat in the past.

Comment by David E. Hooker on November 19, 2019 at 4:36pm

I am sure that he is, I am just wondering.

Comment by David E. Hooker on November 19, 2019 at 4:34pm

I was looking at LT. Col Vindman's awards I see that he is wearing a 2ACR crest.  I said to myself "he is one of us". I also wonder if he is wearing the crest correctly?

Comment by Dave Gettman on November 19, 2019 at 2:10pm

Harold, yes he must have been one of ours at one time. I see he also has a 25th Infantry badge. I'm thinking he was probably at Ft. Lewis in 2006 when 2ACR was inactivated and 1-25 Inf was reflagged as 2SCR and sent to Vilseck.
