Hello James..  Really good to hear from you and yes.. I do remember.  I have not kept in touch with Steve Rambo.. I know he was from the Philly area.  Jimmy Mursell was a mechanic and now lives close to Pompano Beach in FL and I plan on giving him a visit later this summer.   

The Cav is having another reunion at Valley Forge next year..  the last couple of reunions were great.

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.
