Ha Ha. When I first got to Amberg in 86 as a PVT, I was supposed to go to L Trp with SFC Gonzales. Instead, I was assigned to work in-processing for a couple of months and then as the CSM/XO driver for a few more. Gonzales was pissed. Not too many people scared me back then, but he was one that did. Needless to say that when I gto a chance to go to a line troop, I went to I-Troop to stay away from Gonzo.

What's up Martinelli--I was in SFC Gonzalez's platoon from 86-88. I remember you vaguely from when you first got to L Trp out of basic--you used to hang out in a club downtown that my girlfriend at the time (later wife, later x-wife) used to take me to--I think it was called the Sundowner. Anyway, welcome to Dragoon Base.

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.
