Have you tried Vetfriends.com? They have a 32d AADCOM group over there: http://www.vetfriends.com/units/?unit=18316

I was in 59th ADA for a minute before going to 2d Cav. It was a Hawk missile battery in Hanau. They sent me there after I got kicked out of the MP's for throwing a blanket party on a General's nephew. Some people just can't take a joke! (We beat the SHIT out of him with bars of soap in socks while others held him down with a blanket over him)

Anyway, at the 59th I somehow miraculously came up with an MOS for an advanced Hawk missile guidance system mechanic. I'd never heard of a Hawk missile, so they decided they were going to make me a gate guard on a remote mountain top missile site.

Between that and the company clerk always hitting on me trying to get in my pants, I went AWOL. Found out later the company clerk was Perry Watkins, the guy the Army later started the "don't ask, don't tell" policy over.

When I finally got caught a couple weeks later, it was off to the Czech border and the 2d Cav. No place left to run!!

Colonels of the Regiment

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



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.
