Entered on the rolls: 14 Feb 1990, signed by COL Leon Holder. Exactly one year later got blown up by a scud attack on Hafar al Batin when I was commanding a small detachment in 1st Cav Division.

I served in the Regiment at 3 different duty locations (Amberg, Ft. Lewis, and Ft. Polk) over 3 different decades (70s, 80s, and 90s).  Yep, put me in the book!

The Regiment went through a couple re-flaggings at Fort Lewis, too, once in 1993 and once in 2006 with the Regiment starting from scratch.

Thank You Dave I was hoping they were still around , but the same thing happened to the White Horse Assoc. records of the 5th Calvary of Fort Knox deactivated all records were filed  , even the graduation photo's of each Troop were gone , now just a few entries in a book or ledger somewhere

Not likely those were kept, Charles. An awful lot of stuff went into the "File 13" when the Regiment left Germany.

Can't remember if I've posted this on here before.

When dad was in the 2d Cav 1953-55, we got a Giant German Boxer from a GI who was going home. Outstanding show-quality dog with papers going back several generations. At the time the only dog of his breed registered with the American Kennel Club. I'll be damned if that GI didn't find me here on Dragoon Base about 4 years ago!

Neat!! This is almost as much fun as ancestry!  Surprises around each corner.

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.
