Admitted on 25 April 1987 at the III Corps Armour Ball together with the CORPS CDR LTG Crosbie E. Saint. I'll never forget that evening. I was the only one in Greens didn't have a set of Blues at that time.  Was assigned as the TF Master Gunner of TF 1-32 AR. It was a permanently balanced TF consisting of two M2 outfitted infantry companies, an M3 scout platoon and two M1 A1 tank companies. Was also dual hatting as the BDE's MG from the TF HQ. We outshot everyone on Fort Hood and ate up the live fire at the NTC. Great training environment in those days for sure!

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

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.
