I was inducted in 1992 along with Gray Lawrance while we were assigned to the 9th Cav as PSG at Fort Ord, CA. When Ord closed we ended up at Ft Polk. I was in K trp, Gray was in I trp. Being inducted into the Order was one my greatest memories. "ALWAYS READY"

At the time of my induction in 1989, I was an (AGR) Armor Battalion Opns Sgt. I was admitted by MG Mark Mullin Cdr. 50th AD, COL. Earl Harper, CofS and LTC Dave Loveless Cdr. 2-102 Armor. In 1993 after my retirement my wife was inducted into the Order of St. Joan D'Arc by III Corps CSM Richard Ross.

I was recommended by a Major with whom I had worked in an S-3 shop. He told me he knew I deserved it but needed samples of what I had did for the armor branch. Well, when I was an instructor in the Master Gunner branch the branch manager was a MSG Kenneth Preston. The Major about crapped when he saw that NCOER LOL. You have to wonder where they think the higher ranking folks come from. It is not like they were born CSMs

I know the feeling. The ST George is probably my favorite memory of the Army. What was really special was the guy who recommended me, CPT Dan Cormier. One of the few commanders I had who genuinely listened to his PSGs, which only means that when he was an LT, he had a squared away PSG

I was awarded in August 2004 as part of my retirement. It means more to me than the MSM they pinned on that same day

Brave Rifles! I was L Troop 3/3 from 86-87 and C Troop 1/3 from 91-92. In between I was 1/68 AR in Wildflecken doing an ocassional Border Tour with 1/11 ACR

Admitted in the spring of 1991 with the 3rd ACR, by COL Star. I was the S2 for the 3rd Squadron. The ceremony took place in the conference room of the regimental HQs.

Forgot to mention- When my wife was awarded the Joan of Arc ("St. Joan d'Arc" on the certificate), the staff officer reading the presentation pronounced it Joan Dark. Real men of genius

Admitted in June 1986 by RCO, 2ACR, COL James Steele. My wife Betty was admitted to the Order of St. Joan at the same ceremony in Bindlach.

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.
