Yeah I was there, at the fire bombing,  I think it was the BAQ, not sure.  The guy who did it used his empty wine bottle.  I watched him empty it, lol.  However, I didn't see him do it.  Since I didn't have any love loss for the CO, I was rather enjoying it.  Anywhere else and he would have been fragged.  I remember him walking around with two .45's and two MP's in case "they" tried again.  If you remember, shortly after that incident he got promoted to Major, transferred and then drummed out to civilian life.  Or so I heard.  Could be all BS.

It might have been Butch Page he lives in Missouri and travels there to Branson occasionally.

GREAT to hear from you!  Ahh, the Ammo Dump, I use to freeze my ass off out there in the winter.  Two hours of walking around that place felt like two days, especially when you were dead tired.  Sorry Joe, I misspelled your last name, I stand corrected.  It's still good to hear from you though.  Think you might make the reunion in November?  It would be good to see you there if you could.

I think I worked guard duty with you several times out at the Pond Barracks ammo dump.  Did you have a big thick walrus type of moustache?

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.
