Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Troopers who served in D. Company and / or on the rock from 1973-1978 I had the privilege and honor to serve with and under some of the finest officers, NCOs and troopers in my military career. The memories and experiences while serving in the 2nd Cav. will always be in my heart and mind. Dragoon For Life
I'll dig some up, scan 'n post them. I do remember the M-24 during my time at Bindlach. The SMO and his team kept it running. I recall Trp Change of Commands that used both the Chaffee AND "Cav Trooper" Ollie Brigger (he looked great dashing delivering roses to the incoming/outgoing commander's wives) as part of the ceremony. Seems like every new commander was trying to one-up the last guy!
I was in D CO in the AVLB section from 1978-180.
I liked your photo of (Marty?)DiMezza he was a Spec 5 driver when I knew him.
Was Captain Skinner the CO while you were there?
1/2 ACR Great bunch of guys.
