Oh, by the way, I see you live in Knoxville. I lived in a little suburb of Chattanooga for a while by the name of Soddy Daisy. Love East TN! We have a daughter, son in law, and grand daughter in Dayton. We get down there a couple times a year. East TN is where i want to end up when I retire

Take care,

Hi Dale,

I see on your page, that you were friends with Roger Tegge. I think his dad (Gemne) was the Master Sgt over the mess hall in Hof while I was on permanent party there (1975). I met Roger a few times when he cam e to visit. Do you still have any contact with Roger?

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.
