welcome to the Base Mark i was over in C Troop during your time. that flu shot was WICKED! I remember we got the shot on Friday so we would be sick on the weekend. There were guys that got sick and passed out before they even left the gym where we were taking the stuff. I didn't get sick until a couple of days later. I will never forget that.

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.
