I remember you (and Coakley, Smaaland and Ballard). I was in the headquarters tank section of H Company and we used to go up to Coburg with your platoon all the time.Coakley used to be in H CO too until someone found out he was a Sheridan guy and they shipped them off to Goofy Troop.I think I saw his profile and he's in Ohio somewhere.

Still looking for John Ballard? I sent him an e-mail and told him he could find you here.

Toujours Pret Bill,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do.), and that you tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley

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.
