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
