Tell us a little about your cav days.
I was on the border patrol in a 551 Sheridan, we walked the border, drove jeeps back and forth on the border and did observation in OP shacks.
Tell us a little about you now.
I have a movement disorder and have been to 3 different neurologists and they have not been able to diagnose me yet. I am having genetic testing now (I was adopted so don't know my medical background) to see if it is a genetic condition. I found your website and am now wondering if my health problems could be related to herbicide poisoning. I contacted my doc at the VA and they said they will pursue that once we get my results back on the genetic stuff.
Phone number (Optional).

Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
I am still in touch with the buddy that I signed up with but I can't remember names of the others.

Please call me if you can, I would like to talk to you about what you have discovered with this herbicide poisoning. Thank you

There were some mystery barrels - drums really under the Motor Pool in the old Messerschmidt ammo magazine rumored to be agent orange or radio active but it turned out to be lithium grease from WWII

What troop were you in Billy? I was in C Troop 1974-75. No herbicides that I know of. I hope you find out what is going on and get some treatment.

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.
