Hi Nelson Lt. Williams  were you a LT for L Troop or Lt. for the 3rd Sec. of L Troop  between 1976 -79   and did you go to Hamsterdam  back. than . The reason for  asking were trying to contact L troop Guys from back than maybe have a reunion.  If you have no clue what I'm talking  a bout  disregard this Tweet.




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.


Machine Gun Troop, 2d Cavalry; Adjutant General.
