Hi Luis,

  What a great site.  I did listen to Blue Oyster Cult.  The music of the era,,,.  How is Florida?   Looks like Florida is where the regiment began.

Take a walk over to the Oldtimers. We are waiting here, all 199 of us, for our 200th member. Great bunch of guys, some reasonably sane. Don't be alarmed when the balloons cascade down and the oom pah band starts playing.

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Luis. There is a lot of 2d Dragoon history in Florida. That's where we got our start in 1836.

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.
