Still rebuilding our mortar section after the deployment, but they're a good bunch so far. Damned proud to have them in the Troop.  Looking forward to seeing them bring some "high angle hell" here in the next few months.

I worked with Max Tritt when I first came to the RGT as a SPC in '94 at Polk where he was the Regimental MG.

Hello Marc

     That is a darn nice looking ring your friend designed and I think it would make an awesome birthday gift for me.  That is what I suggested to my wife and I think I've got better than half a chance of her coming thru for me.  Could you fire off the contact information please?  E-mail ro.johnson@yahoo.com. or post a comment to my page here.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Marc, saw your question about the old troop photos. Were you able to find anything out? I was in K Troop from 74-77 and lost damn near everything over the years.

Toujours Pret Marc,

Welcome home Troop.

plenty of updated features
(similar to MySpace), lots of sub-groups,
(Officers Club,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc),
and links for “2nd Cavalry Assn.”
News and History Centers.

Robb Russell has posted some tips for
navigating the site(ie,photos,links,ect)
in the Forum.

Please feel free to stop by and read the
latest “Tacoma Dave's ‘Triva Quiz’”,
you can learn some 2nd Cav history,
and you could even, win a kool prize.

If you need any help, you may contact
Robb Russell, 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 is to,
‘Keep it clean’.
Use your real name and picture,
(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, where to find the DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base,

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.
