Whoa...Just moved to the Denver Area, and  shocked to find High altitude cavalry men. Anyone still active on this site?

The reason I was asking was that a couple of us would like to get together with other Cav Troopers but if the date is between May 18 and May 30, that conflicts with Run For The Wall.  We plan to ride a few legs of the ride.  Let us when a date is set and we can see if we can be there.

We haven't made plans for a 2011 get together.  The one we attempted last year fell flat.  We got all sorts of positive responses, made plans, bought food, etc, and only two people showed up...

What is the general location of the May 23rd annual get together.

I know another "Old" cav Trooper I served with in Hco 2/2 ACR in Bambarg 1974-1977.  I'll send him the link.  Also, I am not sure if i'll be available around May 23rd got the get together.  I normally try to ride part of the "Run For The Wall (RFTW)".  Toujours Pret "Always Ready".

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.
