Hey Ken,

     Glad to hear from you again. Hope that you are doing well and in good health. Currently living in Orlando. Married to my beautiful wife Paula for 19 1/2 years and blessed with three daughters! Have been with the Orange County Sheriff's Office for almost 11 years and in the aviation unit full time for just over 5 years as a Tactical flight Observer.

     So how are you? What have you been up to all these years?

Welcome Ken Weaver,

I knew only one Aviator in the CAV, then Captain Kipp O Miller, who is a member herein. I served before your time, But Welcome Home, Trooper. I hope your retirement years are as good as you imagined, and I only slightly envy your geographical location.

Funny when I went in the Army, Hawaii was my "wish list" assignment; but the Army, in all of its wisdom sent me to the 3/2 ACR in Amberg, Germany.

I had various assignments, and, when I wasn't bitchin' I enjoyed it all. And now in hindsight, for the quality of life, quality of associates, and overall, it was most probably the best time of my life.

I have relived some hilarious times in here wi th some of my Cav Brethren, with whom I am honored to associate. I hope you are able to "connect" with some past friends in here.

Welcome Home, Brother

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.
