Still alive and kickin'. Just haven't been on the computer much because I blew my back out again and now am scrambling trying to catch up with stuff as usual.

Good Sunday Afternoon Troopers ... ..

Still alive and kicking, though it's been harder since the A/C on the camper went on the fritz!  Gonna call in the morning to see if we can get someone out to look at it. Really do not want to break camp and haul the trailer half way across the county. For now, keeping the windows open, the top vents open, and using two 40" Tower fans. One in the bedroom and one in the main cabin.

Hope all are doing well. Enjoy the day, take care ... ..

Toujours Pret!

Gene G, I would only get stung badly if I did that.

If Dave was given this web-site (DRAGOONBASE)  then I FEEL WE SHOULD ALL BE HERE STILL WITH OUR COMMUNICATIONS AND STORIES.

DO NOT ABANDON THIS OLD TIMERS WEB SITE EITHER.

Y'ALL HEAR.

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.
