Not much actually. It only took him a couple of years to reply!! I emailed him on AKO after he retired and he finally checked it one day and replied. He said he was working in Alabama as a Marine Police Officer patrolling one of the water eays. I emailed him back and haven't heard anything from him since...so I figure another year or so and I'll get a reply:-) DId I telly you I ran into Hank Martinelli and Danny Rivera on Facebook. Hank is retired at Fort Bliss and Rivera lives in Puerto Rico. Rivera said he had contact with Hennerty when he lived in Washington State but that was years ago and hasnt talked to him since. Anyway, Merry Christmas and I hope all is doing well. Later Mac.

Outstanding story Pete! Awhile back I bought a 2nd Cavalry commemorative plate off of eBay. It had been presented to the Mayor of Luneville by 1st Squadron in 1991, and was signed by the officers and their wives on the back. I recently sent it to Tom Molino, President of the 2nd Cavalry Association, to either donate to our museum or take back to Luneville.

Holy crap! SSG Fahrenkrug!
I was also in the platoon. Me and Hernandez were room mates. I was under SSG Wooten until he left then I worked for SSG Adams and SGT Hennerty. Hey, do you remember where Daniels went when he ETSed?

Doing great, hope you are doing the same. My son was in 82D from 2000-2005 and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. He is home now and going to college on the GI Bill. Tommy




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.
