Tell us a little about you now.
I left the Army after one enlistment. During my post-Army career (turnarounds of automotive, railroads and industrial companies) I’ve worked mostly in Europe but also Asia and the United States. Today I assess procurement and supply chain operations for clients, based in Switzerland. Most of my clients are manufacturers of machinery for food production (i.e., grain milling, pasta extrusion, chocolate processing, etc.). I live in a small village called Hombrechtikon about 30 km SE from Zürich: more cows than people!
Do you have a web site?

John, I'm always amazed by your memory for historical details. I can barely remember our OSUT training. I remember we hooked up with the Chrysler engineers to help them write the dash10 for the M1. I'd really like to get sitrep on what became of the RoadRunner. I doubt the Swiss would appreciate you cruising their towns in your RoadRunner. Too bad I didn't kick in some money to you to have that care shipped to The Rock. I emailed your blackberry. kenlucas77@verizon.net

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.
