tight knit group of troopers. Even though it was a demanding assignment, it was the most rewarding. Long cold border tours in 151's with no heaters, Cpt. Holley trying to sneak up on our radar site!! Cold and snowing, it didn't stop him from checking on his troops. Gunnery, & tragedies of trng for combat.

I think I remember you Michael! Have not seen Winfeild here. He was quite a flamboyant commander. Got in trouble I heard for trying to take illegal knifes home. Remember the knife in the boot. He was a good commander though. Welcome to the dragoon base.

Welcome to the Base Michael. I'm sure you know Top Miller in C Troop C Troop. He was my First Sergeant and is active here on the Base. You might want to look him up

B-Troop that's what I'm talking about. Always a pleasure to welcome one of the old troop to the site. My time was 62-65.

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.
