Tell us a little about your cav days.
Arrived as a PFC and departed Sergeant. Border duty, tank gunnery at Graf on a Sheridan, Alerts, Inspections, etc. In the beginning there were 9 Troopers in a room, (4 bunk beds and a single bunk in the middle of the room). Drafted soldiers on a 2-year hitch and enlisted on a 3-year. Vietnam War was winding down and the Army was going VOLAR (all volunteers). The transition happened while I was there. Went to 4 to a room with new grey beds. All new Jeeps at the border and OPs went from shacks to trailers.

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.
