 we very probably WERE the baddest, A buddy of mine that was with 10th Spec Forces said that E Germans they interviewed always said it was the 2d ACR that kept awake nights not Black Horse.

The training has gotten even more intense, Kirk. I wonder why those troopers in Vilseck even have barracks, because they are always out in the field somewhere. Recently there were troopers deployed in a dozen countries from Estonia to Saudi Arabia, training with soldiers from other countries, and 2d Cav's 3d Squadron conducted an 1100 mile road march from Estonia through Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, and back to Germany showing support for the former eastern bloc countries against Russia's recent aggression.

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.
