Tom B., You could take screen shots of any photos or pages you might want and save them to whatever photo app you have. I would also suggest that any contacts you or anyone else might lose when the site goes dark keep a record of email addresses or other contact info. 
Dave was quite articulate when he described the new site as a cluster####, although I would have upset the censors had I been first to voice an opinion.

Tom B., you should be able to download individual photos from your page to your computer. As for saving your page...?

Harold, NING is owned by the Russians. All they want is the American dollar. They couldn't give a damn less if we are vets.

Even their "Experts" couldn't transfer the old site over to a new one. They really screwed it up bad. Ask Harry, he's seen it. Total cluster ####! All comments are gone. All personal profiles are gone. Everything else is just a scrambled up mess. I don't see a viable solution.

I do not want to lose you guys.

There has got to be an answer to resolve this.

Doesn't ning know we are a bunch of old veterans

Dave Gettman, perhaps there's someone that knows how to transfer everything to a Facebook page??

Shannon, you are very close but, that would be the Infrared Periscope most likely for the Driver's night vision system. :)

Dave or anyone else,how do I save my page and my pictures??Thanks.

Chief, we are payed up until April. After that Dragoon Base will be shutting down. NING will no longer be supporting the old site and will shut it down. The new site is an overpriced disaster.

Hey Chief that looks like the vision block for the drivers hatch on the M 60

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.
