Tell us a little about your cav days.
I was originally assigned to Headquarter / Headquarters Troop at Merrell Barracks in Nurnberg. I was transferred to The Rock (Bindlach - Christensen Barracks) after a slight altercation with a PFC. They thought it was punishment but I enjoyed The Rock. It was hard work, long hours and good times. J P Preston was the best Top Kick I had and he always knew that he could get a cold Coke and chips at my track during any FTX, Graf or Hohenfels trip.
Tell us a little about you now.
I put myself through college on the GI Bill and became a firefighter in 1978 and a Captain about 10 years ago. Retirement is looming but I already am working part time at my retirement job.

Married for almost 20 years and we have a beautiful daughter and handsome son.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
James Russell Roy from the Rock post office. J P Preston, Sgt. Deagan, Sgt "Rodeo" Warren, and anyone else from Third herd. Captains Bowen, Nicholson, and Hampton from RHQ/HHT.

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.
