Jerry Thompson replied to Dave Gettman's discussion 2d DRAGOON BELT BUCKLES
"I ordered my buckle from the store at the end of June and received #114  in time for July 4th.  It is a great looking buckle and wears very well. I encourage everyone to add this to their Cav buckle collection. "

Good to hear from you. I am still in the Army. I don't know why, maybe I am afraid to get out! Right now I am the J4 for JTF-B and enjoying life. This is what Army life is supposed to be like!

After the RSS, I became the shop officer for the 46th Engr Bn at Fort Rucker, picked up CPT then went to the Advanced Course at APG and while I was there I was selected for company command. In '98 I was "selected" for command of a recruiting company in Southwest Louisiana. I musta done well because after picking up Major in 2000 and serving in Macedonia for nearly a year, I was selected for resident CGSC at Leavenworth which I finished in the summer of 2003. I have been outside the US since July 2003. Lots of cool assignments along the way. Five years in Germany was a bit too long. I just extended here in Honduras until Feb 2010.

Toujours Pret Sir,

Welcome Jerry 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,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, 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 tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley
