Dave, if you go to Dave Gray's page he has a Company picture of D Co from 1991 that is just the size you are looking for.

No Dave, that's not the Dave Clark that I know, the one that I know was my Plt. Ldr. while in C Trp 1st Plt. on late 1979 until 1981, he then was selected and became the newly promoted BG Robert Wagner (Dueler) Aide the Camp at the 3rd ID, About 2 years forward then CPT. Dave Clark commanded a Troop of 3/7 Cav (I think A Trp.), David Sheridan Clark is now a retired LTC residing in Tennessee. To the Captain Clark on your photo - "Rest In Peace my Brother and Thank Your For Your Service and Ultimate Sacrifice."

*RCSM Joseph T. Foglio.....5th in line for SM of the ARMY.  Loved him bunches, "Look at the CSM's Belt Buckle....now look are you Buckle Trooper!"  Loved walking with him across the Parade Grounds.  He loved busting NCO's, especially those stealing cash from the Casino take.  When you look under unforgettable people on earth....you will definitely find his photo!

Dave, the source picture is right-side up but still loads upside down. Then I rotated the source photo upside down and it loaded identical to source upside down. So I just went with the crest and it loaded fine.

Dave, I see the Squadron Commander's coin but I need to rotate my profile picture 180 degrees.

Dave, can you turn my profile photo 180 degrees? It is upside down and I cannot figure out how to rotate it.

2D CAVALRY MUSEUM UPDATE

For the twisted few of you out there like me who have lost anal retention over the closing of the 2d Cavalry's Reed Museum in 2006, I have some good news. Things are finally moving forward towards getting the "Reed" opened up again in Vilseck, Germany, after being in limbo for three years.



The Regiment has a building at their home on Rose Barracks in Vilseck…
