We lived in the field most of the time Graf, Hof, Reforger, alerts. I'll never forget the railloads. Blackcat wine!!! Bratwurst outside the main PX. Dunkel Bier! I loved the cooking so much I married a beautiful German Girl to bring back home. I miss my BMW and Little Switzerland. Getting ripped downtown and then every other unit wanting to fight us and ofcourse the CAV always kicked butt!!

It might have been on military.com because I used to spend a lot of time on there.

Glen and Lance are both good people. I haven't met them personally, but have had several conversations on here. Glad you could connect with old friends.

Hey Bryan,

Were you a member of the old Dragoon Base website? Your name is real familiar and I can't figure out why. Either that, or I remember it from somebody's "buddies served with" list.

Anyway, welcome to Dragoon Base, brother.

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.
