2d Cavalry has many good friends in the Czech Republic, members of the Military Car Club Pilsen. They have attended and supported several 2d Cav functions and the 2d Cav has sent representation to many of their functions over the past few years.

This is the president of the club, Ruda Bayer (right) and I at the Vilseck Fest last July welcoming the Regiment back from Afghanistan.

Colonels of the Regiment

8th Colonel of the Regiment Nelson B. Sweitzer 9 Jun 1886 – 29 Oct 1888



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.
