I ran into Swasey back in 93 when I was enduring my one year in the NG. The NG unit was transitioning to Bradleys and we were in Yakima for our two week drill and Swasey was one of the master trainers on the transition team. Thankfully he vouched for me and the fact that I was getting out of the NG a couple months later they had me be a peer trainer.

Toujours Pret Keith,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base site has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,ect) in the Forum.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or myself, or just yell out another member may be able to help.
And his only wish that ‘We keep it clean’, use our real names/with pictures, and you tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks Again for joining,
Jesse Kelley

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.
