Hi Eric, speaking with all of you over the past few days has brought back so many memories. We had some difficult times, but mostly we all had a lot of fun. My wife and I were visting some friends in Sweden four years ago and actually took a road trip to Bayreuth. Had a great time, got hammered at Kellers, its called something else now, cannot remember the name. It felt just like back in the day. Wake surfing is a ton of fun you should really check it out. Look forward to catching up with you all more.

Hey Blad - I hear ya, the sad part is that due to a fire at my parents house in the early 90´s I lost almost all the Basic photos and a grip of Border pics - otherwise I would have probably took up all of the server space here...what I have posted is still like only say 30% of all the pics i had from my Rock time...luckily I am still so sentimental, that I always kept my favorites near...and I am happy to share...as i mentioned somewhere (and i am sure this goes for many of us...) The Rock prepared me for life quite simply, and I owe pretty much all of my personality and grounded, curious nature to all of you guys i had contact with from 1986 till 1990 - it shaped me to the point that somewhere I decided there was more out there, and i wanted to find it...so what i am saying is that chunk of my life is worth more to me than mostly all of the rest, with the exception of being around my boys...

To answer your question, yes, i had the pleasure and honor to build one of the most famous skate teams in Aggressive Inline skating history - The USD (Universal Skate Design) Team - to this day they are undisputedly the best in the world, and it took me all over the world which was amazing, although Golf does the same for me now as well, that was another great time, and it kept me young - touring with 17-20 year olds keeps you fit!

I hope no one trips about me posting boatloads of pics, but I have waited for a profile like this to save, and share alot of great memories...god knows we had many!

Around 1994 or 95, Sgt Keys was also stationed at Ft. Stewart. I have no Idea if he's still in the army or not. What about Ron Patton, Kemp, SSG Crusher(sp), & Alderman. I have a home video I made over there. I will watch it soon & if I see anyone else we forgot I'll let you know.

Bunn is the man with the memory! did you find Favors? I'll take a look around.
At 8:48am on February 9, 2009, Keith Bunn said…
That's outstanding! Thanks for letting me know.
Sgt Favors' first name is Terrence. I talked to him a couple of times when I was stationed at Ft. Stewart. He is retired. That was about 10 yrs ago though.

I talked with Tobias last night and he remembers Sgt Favors. I told Tommy about it also. I cant remember his first name though.

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.
