Tell us a little about your cav days.
Mike Ratolo and I where best buds and on the Color Guard together. We wore the 1836 Uniforms...very cool (sabers), but they were very uncomfortable, We were requested all over Germany and went TDY good times. The most fun was massed colors events. Just the look on everyone's face when we pulled the cover off the Regimental Colors and those 76 battle streamers dropped out! It would get quiet and then wow..

Do you remember the time frame when you were in Amberg?  Did you spend any time at Gates?  Check the pictures on my page and see if anyone looks familiar.

Welcome Charles,
Hello to another '63 alumni. We were there the same time but doubt our paths crossed. Take a look at our Oldtimer group. You may see familiar names or faces.

Colonels of the Regiment

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



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.
