Great to hear from you again.  All those stripes on your blues look good.  I sold the Shelby just before I left (Oct '88) to a guy from the Aviation Squadron.  He brought it back to the states and sold it to a guy in Wisconsin.  The car has its own website at:  http://www.thecoralsnake.com/               Pat

Look at you in the Blues man. I think you once dogged me out for wanting to re-enlist, I think the term you used was "Lifer" hahaha. sorry about not posting sooner, been working alot lately. Blues look good on you man. I'm back in the US finnaly,working for the Gov on a contract as a Subject Matter Expert. Ground Combat Simulations. CCTT is the program, you may have heard of it. Nice touching base with you again. Talk to you soon.

Hey Dan, good to hear from you. Congrats on retiring, I'm right behind you, just 14 years left to go. My minimum age for retirement with CBP is 56, that will give me 38 years of federal service once I'm there. Any post retirement plans? Best of luck in whatever you do. Jaime



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.
