Yes Jeffrey we had our work cut out for us that is for sure.That was some great competition with our NATO Allies It gave me a lot of confidence in the West's ability to do our job if the cold war ever went hot. I was able to see and compete with some of the best Tankers in the business.We did the best we could with the tank we had, the M 60 is a good tank but I thought at the time the British and German had a better tank, and you have to give credit to our German Allies they are and have always been some of the best Tankers around I sure am glad we are on the same side now.It was a great event to have been involved with and I look back at it now and think about how special it was just to be picked to represent the U.S. Army and to work with all the men that made it happen we were all professional's it was a lot of hard work by all that were involved and it was a lot of fun also.

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.
