Oh yeah, there are several.


Top on the list is our own (2d Cavalry Association) "Spur of the Moment" store. All profits go directly toward supporting the active Regiment and its veterans through programs like the Wounded Warrior program (we are the only official liaison with Walter Reed), the Fallen Dragoon Memorial, and an annual Scholarship award to name a few. http://www.secondcavalry.com/cubecart/


Another favorite of mine is CAVHOOAH.COM, not only for their fine site but for their support of our Regiment. The owner, Dan Carbone, is supplying us free of charge, gold combat spurs to present the families at all fallen Dragoon funerals. The 2d Cavalry Association has made a commitment to the Regimental Commander to have representation at all fallen Dragoon funerals and to present the families with a set of gold spurs, a spur certificate, and a brief history of the Regiment and Order of the Spur in a red folder. We have also committed to have representation at every hospital where there is a wounded Dragoon recovering, worldwide. http://www.cavhooah.com/


Cafepress.com is another one. They make all kinds of custom stuff and have designed several 2d Cavalry items at our request. http://www.cafepress.com/


That should keep you busy for a couple biers anyway. Happy shopping.

Actually, that glass was given to me several years ago by a guy I was renting my storage shed from. He had a small display in his office with a little guidon and miniature crossed sabers. Got to BSing with him and found out he served with 2ACR in Bosnia.

Hey Darryl,
I see those Dueler's patches for sale/bid on eBay every now and then. I bought one for our museum.

No I did not. I don't know why. Give me yours and I'll get right back to you.

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.
