Tell us a little about your cav days.
N Troop, 4/2 ACR was the best unit I served with in my 10 years of active duty. It wasn't all fun, but we had a great unit. After my first year there, I flew back to the US, married my wife, and she came over to live with me the final two years. It was indeed like a two year honeymoon (between the alerts and field).

She was broken in early though...her first night in Germany, we were called out on alert at 3:00 AM...I tossed her a fist full of DMs, pointed in the direction of the market and drink store, kissed her, and headed out the door.
Tell us a little about you now.
I departed the Army in 1993 at 10 years, and never looked back. Sine that time, I have become a self-taught computer programmer, and now make a living writing C#, Visual Basic, and SQL Server code for the largest provider software company in the Elder Care market.
Do you have a web site?
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Tim Porter, Mike Chickilly, William Coleman, Alan Holcomb, Larry Owens, Melvin Moore, Buford Thomas, and quite a few others I'm too tired to think of right now. ;-)

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Gerry.

If you ever find you have too much time on your hands and want to put some of that computer knowledge to good use, give me a holler. Our 2d Cavalry Association websites always need work.

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.
