"Captain" Haddle....I'm so hurt that you didn't include me on your "buddies to find" list !!

Kidding, of course.  Good to hear that you survived your 4/2 tour.  Who know's when you'll actually read this, but feel free to give me a call.  Good Lord, I just realized McDonald ended up as a General....and I puked on his shoes at a formal event...just great...glad I'm retired !!!

Thanks. Flight hours were always hard to come by but we did all that we could. During the draw-down I ended up postal NCO for about 7 months as well!

Yep, that is him! His wife, BG Anne Mcdonald is currently working at Ft McPherson, GA.

I work for MG John Mcdonald at the Army Famly, Morale, Welfare & Recreation Command in Alexandria, VA. I believe his bio says he was COmmander of Q Troop at the time you were there. He definitely still carries the "spirit of the cavalry" with him!

Toujours Pret Brian,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the site 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,ect) in the Forum.
And his only wish that ‘We keep it clean’, use our real names, and 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.
