Hi Cosme,

Nice to hear from you. I were in A Troop (1969-1970) as an Acting Sargent and Scout track leader. Spent time in Weiden and Rotz Camps doing Patrol and OP. I don't remember Raymond Walters. If I see a photo maybe. I keep in contact with Michael Ellinger, another member of A troop. In a near future I'm planning to include photos of those days in the Rock in my page (empty now). For now best regards, Merry Christmas and a couple of photos for your information.

Hi Cosme. I checked a friend of mine that was at Bindlach at the same time as me, both od us cooks. He said we were in B Troop, some times I have to think extra hard to remember. We, Jim and I arrived late January and ETSed out in early October of 70.Thanks for Serving.

Hello Cosme, been a while, hope your doing ok, Just wondering, do you remember the Op site that was built in 1969 in the woods right on the Border, I was thinking it was op site 50, but I may be wrong, thought you might remember, I remember  them working on it with SFC Murphy was on the Border, I remember it was replacing the old site, and I can't remember where that was at either !! Anyhow if you can remember, write me a line or two..Thanks, Mike

Hi Cosme,

I don't remember the girls but my mom knew them. She also told me a story about my dad, you, and a Thanksgiving dinner.

Hi Cosme,

Yes, he was my dad. He retired in 1974 and passed away in 2002 from an auto accident.

Hi Cosme,

Thank you for the info.





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.
