No sleep for 3 days, seeing things that weren't there.  I suppose we were lucky to not have blown up something we were not to during the live fire part of this event..

Now there is a image I will never forget, or the smells that went with it, days or weeks in the field with no shower coming back to the barracks, a whole squadron of stinking Cavalry men, everyone trying to put all the gear away and get cleaned up and get downtown to start enjoying Germany.

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.
