Sorry for long delay in replying.  The day after your post I broke my right hand in a bike accident and am only just getting my act back together.

 

Yes, I turned over DCo to CPT Skinner.  I've got a pic of the change of command up at Camp Gates with some others I just put up.

 Arthur,

 You are absolutely correct Top Rentiera was TOPS.

 Being in the CAV and 2nd ACR was the best. It had a dedicated cadre of proffesionals and all around good people.

 I remember one time when we were on reaction we had an alert and had to go to our alert area and you were the temporary TC and I was your temporary gunner.
