Always good to hear from people from those days on the Pond.  I was with the L Troop platoon that spent time with M Comapny and K Troop at Graf as they tried to pick the final platoons to go to CAT in 79.  I think one of the platoons from K Troop ended up going with M Co.  I just got to shoot up a lot of bullets on Range 10 at Graf.

Yep, that was me.  Richards and Petrey had that room before I did.  Petrey PCS'ed, Richards went to M Co.  They left me a tie-die wall hanging and a sting for plastic "Black Cat" ties from the neck of "swartz katz" wine bottles that stretched from one side of the room to the other. There were probably over 100 of them.  That used to be rot gut wine, now they want $12 for it in the class VI store.  Every now and then I buy one just for the memories.  The wine still sucks.

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.
