Yep Jim. I was in BCo 5/33 back then. Also was in LTRP 3/2 ACR. Bet our paths crossed in one of the two since you look very familiar to me.

Hey Jim,

I remember a lot of those names, I was the LT Brigham's driver on C16. A lot of good NCO's, I had good role models for I when I became one.

Ok, it has been removed, and it didn't take both. I thought it might because the titles were the same.
Glad I could help

Jim does this mean you want to get rid of your other page???




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.
