Good to hear from you. A bunch of us B-troopers on here. I've had the opportunity to talk on the phone with a few, Voltin, Nabrowski, Wright. And emailed back and forth with Salerno, and Slim. It was unfortunate that I couldn't make the B-Trp reunion last year.
Remember 71K ?

Let Chee know I still have the Canon camera he sold me.

Toujours Pret Brian,

Welcome home Troop.
The DragoonBase here at Ning.com, has
plenty of updated features
(similar to MySpace), lots of sub-groups,
(Officers Club,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc),
and links for “2nd Cavalry Assn.”
News and History Centers.

Robb Russell has posted some tips for
navigating the site(ie,photos,links,ect)
in the Forum.

Please feel free to stop by and read the
latest “Tacoma Dave's ‘Triva Quiz’”,
you can learn some 2nd Cav history,
and you could even, win a kool prize.

If you need any help, you may contact
Robb Russell, or any of the 5 admins listed
at the top of the page, or just yell out,
another member may be able to help you.

And our only wish is to,
‘Keep it clean’.
Use your real name and picture,
(pix from back in the day,work best
for searching for Brothers),
but any picture will do.

And that you please tell all your friends
about, where to find the DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base,
and for your Service and Dedication,
to Our Great Country.

Hooah and welcome! I was at the rock a bit earlier than you. Be sure to upload and post any pictures you have of the "good ol' dsys"!




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.
