Tell us a little about your cav days.
Well in those days we mostly did Border patrol on the Czech border with bgs & other German units. when we weren't on the Grenz we were in Graff, when we weren't in either of the other two we were in Hohenfelds or at capstone, then every 6 months or so we'd park over night at this place called Amberg then bang we'd hit rail head & blow out to the border for another 45 day tour.
Tell us a little about you now.

I sent Mike an e-mail this morning with a link to the web site. I told him you were putting together a list of L-Troopers from the 81-83 time frame.

I sent you a Friend request in order to send you an e-mail. I know where one of the L-Troop Scouts is from 81-83. His name is Mike Bates, and he was in L-Troop when you were. He was a 19D Private then, and is a National Guard SFC 11B now here in Florida. He works at Range Control at Camp Blanding, and I met him when I was a contractor there after I retired from the Army. Because  I am an old 3/11 ACR, and 2/2 ACR Scout we became friends. I can get you his e-mail address if you'd like.

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.
