Hey Joseph, I sure do remember those freezing winter nights out at the ammo dump. That 0300 to 0500 shift was a tough one. You mechanics worked pretty damn hard I do remember that when we were in the field somewhere which seemed like most of the time you guys were always fixing something we broke or pulling us out of a mess some where, a the good old days, I remember Hohenfels seemed to remove a lot of tracks off of our tanks lots of rocks. I like telling the story of your M88, when we first got there in 78 the M88 was a gasoline burning one correct? I remember Sgt Mc Kemzie telling me not to get to close to those exhaust grill doors because that sucker belched fire 14 feet long out of them doors when you laid into it, and could warm you up real fast I sure miss those sights and smells. We are getting a very wet winter here in Northern California and we can sure use it . Stay warm Stegy and will talk with you later.

Here is a video of another bad ass mustang. I am sure you have probably seen it. I have a pretty nice 1964 Galaxie 500 XL factory four speed 390 I am fixing up. You just wouldn't just happen to have a 427 laying around the shop your not using Lol. Always good having another ford Fan around.

Hey Stegeman,  good to see another M co. trooper showing up I remember you and Kurtz pretty well I remember hanging out in your 88 when I could. Tell Kurtz I said hey. We lost Chriss krausse a while ago I am sure you remember him. There are a few guys from M company around. We have a reunion coming up this year there is a link to it on here. Stay well.

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.
