Hi David

I remember you  I post a picture of Camp May and your in it standing outside the window.

Glad up and kicking around. Do you remember John taylor the tall guy. He past away last spring he was 57 year old. well take care Normand P.S. I did served 25 years in the Maine National Guards. BUT missed  Desert Storm . I was with a Artillary Unit. I was the ammo Chief.

  Glad to see you survived the Cav and went on to a career with the Army.  I don't recall the platoon you were in (3rd I think with Lt Mowatt-Larsen) but I remember you.  Like you, this was the best tour and unit of my time in the Army. You should plan on attending the next Cav reunion in WDC, Nov 2011.  Look forward to seeing you.  Bob McCorkle, CO, L Trp, 76-78

Hey there Poteete,
Bill Underwood here. You knew me as "DOG" back when I was in L Troop from 76 to 79. I was in 2nd platoon on L27 as a gunner. Good to see you on the site. Me and George Vesel, "MOT" are getting together in June in Danville Va. to see the armour museum. They have a restored Sheridan there.

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.
