I was the first female assigned to 2ACR. The commander, General Wagner, had me wear cav brass and a black beret. I had to wear spurs on my pumps to the dining in. 2ACR was my best assignment. I was treated as all the officers were.

I finally settled down.  I left the Army in 1980 and traveled even more in civilian life than in the military.  I am in Lake Jackson, Tx approx 60 mi south of Houston,  been here since '94 working as an industrial electrician in the chemical plants in the area.

Nice to hear from you!

BJ - I was in the Regt'l Border Opns Ctr, I believe Maj Quinones was the S2, SFC HL Teters was our NCOIC.  Others working the phones and radios were Charles Vance, Jim Dickie, Jarvi, and its been too long the other names escape me. Oh yea, I think Cpt Walt Barnwell was the OIC. 

Anyway, just a shout out to a fellow Cav Trooper.

Barbara, you probably don't remember me, former SSG Charles (Slim) Lane. I worked in the ROC for SFC Dave Stanley, but I hung out with some of your ner-do-wells Stirling Cale, Paul Bryan and Bob Robiero. I'm currently living in Las Vegas , where i'm head of security and asst mgr of a youth hostel/motel. Like I told Rick Clemons the other day,working with the kids keeps me young and keeping the barbarians (pimps, hos and drug dealers) away from the gates keeps me on my toes. Drop me a line if you remember me. I believe I was the "gunner" on your M-60 tank we gave you at your going away party. Adios from sunny Las Vegas, Bob Lane.

-Barb, Thanks for the reply. I am in contact every now and then with Dave Stanley who was the ROC NCOIC for awhile, possibly while you were there. He is retired like most of us and is living in Southern California. I kind of lost contact with most people but hope to find them and renew that bond. Rick

Thanks for the reply Barbara. We have a group here for the Honorary Squadron of Dragoons. You should check it out. I got to see the old books at the 2d Cavalry Museum when it was here at Ft Lewis in 2005-06.

BJ, Yes I was there then and remember you! How are you and what are you doing now? I retired in 1995 after making the first Gulf War. The 2nd ACR was the BEST assignment ever -- we just didn't know how great we had it at the time. I'd enjoy hearing from you again! Always Ready, Rick



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.
