Jim, Sorry the years have been bad for names. The three people who lived in barracks that you might recall was the mail clerk, a red eye gunner from Alabama named Bud spoke with a southern accent and a big black e4 from Miami who wore a bowler hat when off duty. I hung with a lot of the medics.

Jim, Thanks for your reply. Not sure but perhaps you knew SSG Gomez, MSG Knapp, SGT Fair, Rosignol, or Handy. Did not see them on the list but wish I knew of a way of locating them. I lived off base near the Bridge Church.  Still shop for food daily like a German. Feel guilty I used to raid my Neighbors veggie gardens for a fresh salad. Where do you call home these days? I am in central Florida. Toujours Pret Jim

Jim, I was at 2/2 acr from 11-75 to 11-77. I haven't had contact with Roger Tegge since I got out in 1979. Last I know he was living just outside Ft. Lewis in Puyallup, Wa.

Well then maybe you heard about the Sheridan we blew up in C Troop in 1974. Stirred up quite the commotion for awhile.

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.
