Tell us a little about your cav days.
Seemed like we were always in the field. Graf, Hohenfels, the Trace, always on the damn road. Not easy duty but at least nobody was shooting at us.

Best times were with the Boeselager Team - tight group of guys!
Tell us a little about you now.
Still happily married 30 years on to the cute German chick I first met in '78 in Amberg.

Now working as an R&D engineer for an American company in Karlsruhe area.
Name a few buddies you served with that you would like to find.
Any of the Boeselager team from '83 and '84 - No Pain No Gain!!.

Saw Max Tritt's name somewhere on the site - will contact!

Anybody willing to shoot the sh*t with me!

In the past 30 years, how much of that time did you live in Germany? Come to think of it, there was that 50DM I loaned you during Capstone, or was it REFORGER, no... maybe Troop fight? If we could get up to the Osser right now, I'd buy you beer with that 50DM.

Toujours Pret Paul,
Welcome to the DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of updated features, lots of sub-groups,(ie, Officers Club, F-Trp., Amberg, Medics, etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history, and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, 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, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures (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 DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country.
Jesse Kelley

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.
