David, how have you been?? I've looked for you and Randy for a long time on here... always wondered how you were doing after leaving Amberg. There were so many good times there... :) I ended up doing my 4 years and then got out, only to be recalled back to Ft Knox during during Sesert Storm. I actually ran into Mike woods there at a bar one night. He seemed to be doing ok then too. That had to be February 1991 when I saw him last. That was soo crazy with that accident....ugh Have alot of great memories of those days with all of you guys. Not sure what happened to Howell. I remember he was from Enid, OK but i don't know where he went after he left Germany. And I still owe Randy!!! We went out partying the night before he left for Ft Benning, and I ended up passing out. The next morning I woke up with one leg shaved!!!! ll Oh man those were the days!! Good to hear from you!!!!

Colonels of the Regiment

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
