James, found your profile ! ( old dog and new tricks ) I see that you were a Mortar Gunner when I was in elementary school ! I am not being mean, I just recently retired three years ago. ( Trucker ) You gotta go to " Old Timers " , lots of guys from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Enjoy, look around. James

Hi James, welcome to Dragoon Base. I don't know your profile but I served in the Personnel Section of the 3rd. Sqdn. ( Amberg ) from Jan. 1968 thru July, 1969. I was a member of HQ Trp. but when I made SP 5 I was assigned to I Trp, attached to HQ Trp. ( You know, the TO& E ) you had to fill a slot. Working in Personnel I went nowhere, only on paper. I am sure you will spend some time on this Site, meet old friends or folks that you knew. Just two weeks ago, I made contact with the Company Clerk of K Trp. who served in Amberg at the same time that I did. It has been 40 years ! Once again, welcome! Take some time check out some of the Groups, I am in Old Timers. ( what else ! ) Toujours Pret James

Toujours Pret James,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley

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.
