Snake Martin here.  I just joined the Dragoon Base and starting to look folks up.  I know when you left the Squadron it was rather quick Emergency Leave with the passing of your mother as I remember.  I never got a chance to say goodbye to you.  You were a good friend when I first arrived at the Squadron alone right before Christmas and you treated Christie and me very well.  I hope this finds you well - If you want you can email me direct at rca0659@gmail.com - it would be great to hear from you

Hi "D" and thank you for responding. Did you receive the e-mail that I send to you, Peter Janker & Mark about getting together to travel to Ft. Knox last Armor Conference and 2nd ACR Reunion in May 2010? Any way we should all get together for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the sooner the better..

Thanks DuBois. I'm trying to post as many of those troop photos on the History Center as I can find, so troopers can look back at their old buddies.

The last e-mail I got from Stone 6 was December 2006. It was pretty hard to read, so he wasn't doing very well then. I have his obituary somewhere. It says he was awarded the Silver Star in VN.

I got rather PO'd at some of the old Dragoon Base members for giving Tony crap about his typing toward the end. They accused him of being a drunk or a crazy old man, so he quit leaving messages.

I noticed that you mention Brick Miller in your "buddies" area. Are you aware that he too is in the Alexandria area, working for the Family & MWR Command on King St? He is the current Commander there (Colonel).

Welcome aboard sir.

I see you served under LTC 'Tony' Brinkley. He was a member of the old Dragoon Base website for a few years, but passed away a couple years ago.

Would you mind if I copied your unit photos for the 2nd Cavalry Association History Center's Troop photo section?

Toujours Pret Sir,
Welcome DuBois 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.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
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
