I remember Brian, aka "cheeks" they were always rosy all the time. Lol. To me I pictured him as  someone in a fraternity in a up scale college somewhere .Ha, ha. Good guy though easy going. Sgt Medovich was my TC for Gunnery at Graf in 78. Believe same time C troop shot one of ours in 3rd platoon at the night course. TC and gunner did not make it. Funny my Dad lives just west of Ft.Worth in a small town called Azle. I graduated high school there. Lived in Lubbock and El Paso as well so we got Texas covered pretty good! Congratulations on your service and retirement as a firefighter So much to proud of. Its hard to believe being so young and where we were at and the responsibilities we had,  I dont see much of that in today's youth. I have a son who just turned 17 in July like I did July 27th 1975 and was 17 when i got to the Rock there in Jan of 76 and it just blows my mind seeing him and realizing how young we all were. Lougnsberry if I remember if he was short, stocky and white came at the same time with me. I remember Lt Tierney as our platoon leader and SSG Ramos I believe as our Platoon Sgt. Like you said its all good much to appreciate these days. Take care.

Hi Alex glad to hear from you! I see your in Canyon Lake Texas. My daughter went to college in San Marcos and lives in Austin. I go there at least once a year. Maybe if you like  I could stop by and hello? I live in Valrico Florida near Tampa. I can't believe all the years that have gone by. We really were like family up on that hill for 3 years. Wish they had the internet back than so we could have kept in better touch! lol Certainly one of my biggest regrets. Do you have any pics? Did you see the ones I posted? Take good care.

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.
