Hello there, you were in E Troop when I was there. SSG William Hembree 2nd Plt

you mentioned a lot of names that I recall all of a sudden. The 1SG we had I believe there was three. The First one I do not recall his name but was suddenly replaced by 1SG Amos for H Company, "Famous Amos" was what we called him. He called everyone ass hole, Officer or Enlisted did not matter. He was a old skinny relic of a Cav Soldier. He left and went to Fort Polk. The next 1SG I can not remember his name, He was very punctual and educated. Exception of PSG's  All NCO's pulled CQ regardless of Rank.

He would read your CQ log and circle red ink missed spelled words stamp BULL SHIT on it and give it back to you to re write and it better be legible so he could read it . After staying up all night that's the last thing you wanted to do.

Toujours Pret Kevin,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base 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,links,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 you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please 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.
