Need help remember a date at Graff

I don't want to trigger any memories; However, I can't remember an around date when we had a Field Artillery unit strike the back of one of our M1's with a HEMTT cargo where the assistant drive ended up being medivac'ed, I won't go any further than that.  I know it was between 1988 and 1989 but can't narrow it down any closer.  If you can remember this accident could you please contact me? llleary@gmail.com or call me at 719-494-4344. Always Ready!See More

Lonny,

Appreciate your great support of the MIA's/KIA's.

I'm currently working with others here on Dragoon Base and within the 2d Cavalry Association trying to locate one of our 2d Cavalry MIA's from WW II, Pvt. Fred Ashley, captured May 4, 1945, Paseka, Czechoslovakia. He and Pvt. George Buttron, Fred's fellow C Trooper who was killed during the same incident, were the last 2d Cavalry losses during WW II. Fred was severely wounded and taken by the German's along with several others from his platoon, twenty-five in all, many of them also wounded. Fred reportedly died from his wounds, but he was never returned with the others.

Toujours Pret Lonny,
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.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, 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 Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley
