Ken, I became a member of the M Co facebook closed site a couple of weeks ago through Phil Benson.  There are right now 58 members on that site including Top Smith, Carl Coley, and Tom Renn.  Would like to see you there.  You can make contact with Phil through this site.  Make sure you use the Picture of the night firing tank to get to him.  He can help you getting into the closed group for Mco.  Rick

Ken, Ran into Max Tritt at my grandkids soccer game in June and he told me about this website.  Checked it out an found your name.  We served together in M Co in 83-84.  I worked in maintenance, recovery, and turret maintenance.  Spent the last 6 months there as the CO's driver as I planned ETS.  Remember the M1 conversion though and have a picture of you, Sgt. McGuire, and Sgt. Z. standing behind an M1 with a thrown track.  Also remember the Austria trip.  I have a bunch of photos that I will be getting on the website sometime in the near future.  Just have to get them put on a disc to get them posted.  Look forward to hearing from you.  Rick (Sgt. Marty) Martin

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.
