Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( officialaishacbdd@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Aisha.

Good heavens, there's a familiar face! I get email alerts from the site and I saw your name a couple of hours ago. Don't faint, but recall it's been about 40 years since we were whizzing back and forth to the border. My best recall is you at the stick and Major Milne in the front, with Tim Hastings and me in the back while we followed the Donau underneath in the moonlight, probably from Camp May. 

I spent seven years active and seven in the deployable Guard and Reserves for more global hijinx. But have been back in ATL (home) since the first Gulf War. Mike Hanley of Troop L lives here and for a time we were both working for UPS Corporate and linked up regularly. 

There is some interesting stuff on this site for posterity, including a long set of recollections of the Good Friday 1983 Redcatcher adventure. 

Enjoy, and welcome.

- Pete

2d DRAGOONS

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.
