I was in 1st platoon, SFC Webb.

I also left from Camp Pitman for home, February 1975. So you missed out on the big exercise we had in July. We got relieved on the border so we could take part. That is when C-15 blew up. It caught on fire with a full load of ammo on board.

There are several guys from our time in C Troop here on Dragoon Base. I saw Tom Molino (far right) last April at the 2d Cavalry Association reunion. He was commanding the troop when you left.

Hey Jesse, welcome to Dragoon Base. I got to C Troop in January '74, so we overlapped 7 months.

You were probably gone by the time we blew up C-15 on July 25th. That was one heck of an explosion!!!

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.
