Tell us a little about your cav days.
Here are the memories, although random: Over 300 days in the field, Border guard, Graf, Reforger, Plaque above First Sargent s door, "I may not be God, BUT GOD AIN'T AIRBORNE", Sleep Deprivation Training, Headquarters in Nuremberg. Favorite march/run cadence "A Yellow Bird". The Witch's Tit at the Tri-Zone

Being there also included Camp Hof, Camp Cobourg and the Tri-zone (The Witches Tit) for border patrols. Interestingly, I now live where one of the original Dragoons, 2 Cav regiments was formed in Sanford, FL during the Seminole Indian Wars. I had no idea until I was fishing in "Soldiers Creek" where I was told and have since found documents where many of the battles were fought in the early 1800's. Who would have thunk... CAV
Tell us a little about you now.
Working for AAA now in Florida as a systems analyst for aaa.com.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Doug Thacker, Henry Bodkins, Junior, Thompson, are the only ones I can remember.

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.
