Never met him but I had numerous conversations with LTC Brinkley on Dragoon Base before his passing. He was a helluva trooper right up to the end. Didn't know he was a Vietnam Silver Star recipient until I read his obit.

I live just outside Ft. Lewis in Tacoma. Visited the regimental museum a few times while it was out there 2005-06 and donated hundreds of items to it.

Noticed you mentioned LTC Brinkley. He was a member of the old Dragoon Base and sadly passed on a few years ago.

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.
