Hey Jim, I do remember you now, it took me a bit though! I was wondering if you had other pics of your time there?

I forgot all my pics when I left, had them in a photobook and one of my roommates wound up taking them with him. Anyways, I started a group in facebook of the subpost, Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#!/groups/206543082747076/

Hope you will join, there are only a couple of us now, but I sure would like for more buddies who were there to join!

Thanks and I hope to see you on facebook

Welcome to Dragoon Base Jim. You and I arrived in the Bayreuth area at the same time. I was in C Troop in Bindlach from January 74 until February 75. Spent most of the time in the field, but may have shared a barroom brawl or two with you.

Toujours Pret!

Colonels of the Regiment

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



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.
