Tell us a little about your cav days.
Nothing like the ROCK! The best of times, & maybe not so best! Loved Camp Gates & being able to actually conduct missions along the Czech & DDR borders. Great group of guys in my 3rd PLT. There are some I really miss. Ah, those wonderful TRNG days in Graf & Wildchicken!
Tell us a little about you now.
Sadly PCS'd to the 3rd ACR, had a frontal lobotomy while @ Ft. Bliss, & was accepted into OCS, the DARKSIDE! My heart was/is still as a rebellious Cavlaryman, alas I was commissioned as a 11A, (never understood walking into battle)...retired as a LTC w/ 30 yrs. & the old combat chassis has taken a beating!
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Pretty much, (exception being CDATS...LOL!) anyone who was w/ the Alpha Aces Trp. in 85-87!

Welcome to Dragoon Base, Mark. Make yourself at home.

Most everybody is over in the Oldtimer's group suckin' up beers at the Dragoon Saloon. Stop by and say hello.

If you have any problems/questions or just want to BS, give me a holler.

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.
