Closest I can come is the 1976 year book. The whole regiment is in it by troop. HQ 3/2 commanded by Cpt. William T. "Wild Bill" Deely. 1Sgt is Reginald Chittick.

Oh yeah I remember CPT Deely, he was an ass for sure. My last CPT I worked for was CPT Duckworth and SGT Thompson.

Hey Dennis, I got to HHT 3/2 in "75"....do you remember a Specialist, dental clinic named Wilfrado Hughes......he's was regular Army and from Panama?

Hey Dennis

Gee I just found your comment from last August, go figure.

Deely was not my favorite either and it was mutual. I remember Cpt Lewis too, though not very well. I think Lt Taylor was cool. He drove the Porche and would party with us sometimes.

Toujours Pret Dennis,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley



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.
