A big lesson on growing up. A very life changing time in my life to form who I would become. To see how the other side of the world lives. To wake up and look out the window in Coburg and guard towers keeping an eye on my every move. From going there a half canner drinking a bud or coors to Beir Heaven! To finding Bamberger Rauch Beir and volksmarch's. I almost got married and stayed there.

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.
