There is a Vietnam Vets page. An Arthur Franklin mentions a brother James Paris, is that you? 4th S&T Div. Red Patrol 4/69 to 3/70. It is on "Vietnam War 68-69 photo gallery by Richard Calmes". He says "contact me". I was looking for a good photo of the war to maybe do an oil painting of. They have a page simular to this one.

I think I misunderstood you. If you were talking about the 2nd Sqdn, I got there in Jan 63 and left in Dec 66

I arrived in Bindlach about the first part of May 1967 and left in the summer of 69. I was assigned to D Troop as a plt ldr, then Sqd Maint Officer and finally ended up as the B Troop Cmdr.
That name does not ring a bell but it's been a long, long time since then

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.
