Eric,just athought, you are pursuing info on 2nd Cav,I think particulary cold war  info and maybe this angle is not of interest to your research,anyway we have agentleman on the base who was on the other side of the Czeck border (69- 70)    we have friended each other and have exchanged a few  comments ,,, he evidently was on a listening post, monitered our radio tranmission ,, interesting  conversations and such!! pretty decent guy.. he hasn't been on long.. anyway I thought I throw this at you... It seems to be part of our history...

You have no choice, Eric. Once you have been in the 2d Cav, you are infected for life.

Please read the following article I put together several years ago....

Hey Eric, how's it goin'? Come to pick some brains? Don't bother with the oldtimers group....brains gone long ago!

Good to see somebody from the active Regiment. Not very many of the next generation around here. Kick back and make yourself at home. First bier is on me....
